Butch Jones wishes Riley Ferguson well, but focusing on current players

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — If there’s even a sliver of hope that quarterback Riley Ferguson will return to the Tennessee football team, coach Butch Jones is doing nothing to encourage it.

Asked about Ferguson on Saturday night, Jones said “We wish him well,” but that he preferred to talk about the players who were on the team.

That does not include Ferguson.

UT could choose to place restrictions on Ferguson’s transfer, but I’m told no decision has been made on that front yet.

Ferguson hasn’t made a public statement (or tweet) since news of his departure became public, but the assumption is that he would like to join his brother at the start-up football program at UNC-Charlotte.

The video above is our early-week preview.  The video below includes practice highlights from Tuesday’s session in which we first learned about “the red team.”

The final video is new team member Ben Frederickson‘s debut on our weekly Double Coverage segment.

Tennessee football: Highlights, interviews from Western Kentucky week (videos)

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Tennessee is 24 hours away from its first big test of the 2013 season.

A well-played victory would give the Vols a 2-0 start and at least a modicum of confidence heading into a difficult game at Oregon.

A loss would make Tennessee’s path to six wins — and bowl eligibility — that much harder. And much of the early enthusiasm that has surrounded the start of a new football era would evaporate.
