Mark Stoops’ appearance on the SEC Coaches Teleconference was brief this week, but in his opening remarks, Stoops said he feels his team has bounced back nicely from a disappointing loss to Georgia.

“We’re off to a good start in our preparation for Tennessee. I think our team has really responded well after a tough, hard-fought loss this past weekend at home to Georgia,” Stoops said. “It’ll be a real challenge going and playing on the road against a quality football team that’s extremely well coached and very talented. You can see even through some adversity and some injuries, they have plenty of great talent on that team and again, they put a lot of stress on you on both sides of the ball and on special teams.”

When asked, Stoops said it doesn’t matter that Tennessee’s had a lot of injuries this season because they’re a talented team regardless.

“From the injury standpoint, not much because we know they have very talented players,” Stoops said. “They certainly looked like they came out fresh and ready to play last week and I’m sure they are prepared to have a strong finish, so we’ll have our hands full.”

As we told you earlier in the week, Tennessee will be without star kickoff returner Evan Berry on Saturday, but running back Alvin Kamara and defensive back Cam Sutton returned to practice yesterday after missing two and six games, respectively.

    How much do they pay you to pump sunshine and pass out the Blue Aid ? UT and UL will throw this bunch around like rag dolls. We have Austin Pee to thank for a .500 season and a trash bowl.
    Just stop it already

      what’s that fragrance you’re wearing? is it pessimism? it is truly intoxicating.

      why don’t you mind your advice and “just stop it already.”

      We will see about that, they didn’t do a very good job throwing puny ass Virginia around.And your so dumb you don’t realize you need Ky to win Sat. to try and help you get in the bowl playoff picture but your not smart enough to realize that.

    The loss of Berry means Jones will plug in another world class sprinter to return kickoffs and a 4 star at safety…Tennessee does have significant flaws and are very beatable but we must bring it to be in it.

    Last year, at home, we faced pretty much the same thing, and took a 31 point curb stomping (52-21). I am hoping for the best. We are going to be in a bowl this year. That is all that matters, I suppose, to show improvement.
    Go Cats, bring this one home. We are due.
