Here is what to buy and sell after the Tennessee football Volunteers’ loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks.
With the Arkansas Razorbacks giving Tennessee football its fourth straight loss and plunging the Vols to a 2-4 record, it’s safe to say that the stock of UT overall is tanking rapidly. Anger is piling onto the coaches, and they could be at risk of not lasting past this season.
Saturday’s 24-13 loss coming off a bye week was flat-out inexcusable. Rocky Top had two weeks to prepare for a team that is led by a first-year coach and had only beaten other first-year head coaches this year. With a top 25 preseason ranking and a 2-0 start under a third-year head coach, the Vols had no business losing this one.
However, they lost it, and a winning record appears all but off the table for Jeremy Pruitt’s third team. Regardless of the exterior circumstances surrounding the program, Tennessee football is in lots of trouble and losing support fast. With this week’s game against the Texas A&M Aggies now postponed until Dec. 12, it’ll take even more time to get that support back.
As apathy sets in on Rocky Top, we have to continue with our weekly state of the program. Our stock report, just as it usually does, will involve stocks that are up, stocks that are down, stocks that provide good value and stocks to sell. Anything can be a stock, from players to coaches to fans to different groups, including position units.
Although the Vols are struggling severely, there are clear parts of the program holding them back. Also, a few positives still remain within the program, and we were able to find some parts of the program with rising or high stock, even amidst this disaster.
What is making up those positives stocks? Where are the negatives, though, that are tanking the program so heavily? Let’s go ahead and break all of that down here. This is our weekly Tennessee football stock report, now on the heels of Week 10 of this season.
