Brian Jones joined John Adams and Vince Ferrara Friday morning on the News Sentinel Sports Page to discuss the Tennessee vs. Florida matchup down in Gainesville Saturday.

When asked about Tennessee's chances in the Swamp this year Jones replied, "I don't think they're that great." However, he did say that he thought the Vols' head coach Butch Jones has what it takes to turn the program around. "I think he's going to do a hell of a job."

"He was just a straight shooter. That's what you want - someone to give it to you straight. Don't give me all this coach speak and talking points."

"The offense they're going to see this week is night and day from what they saw last week — that wide open spread offense. Now they're going to go up against an offense and a team that just wants to pound the heck out of you and if you can stand up to that. I think they may have a better chance — I should say of standing up to that than they did last week. That being said, i just don't think the pieces are there to beat Florida."
