Tennessee coach Butch Jones promised a few random -- and annoying -- practice distractions this spring.
On Tuesday morning, he delivered.
A baby crying. A siren screeching. An airplane taking off. A car alarm wailing incessantly.
With the offense approaching the end zone, Jones signaled for the noise. It wasn’t crowd noise or heavy metal, as some teams use. But it was ear-splitting, annoying and, yes, quite distracting.
Jones seemed to enjoy watching his team contend with the unexpected.
“I like annoying noises,” he said after practice.
Given it was 9 a.m., the fraternity house across the street might not have found it so amusing.
