Monday Practice Report

KNOXVILLE – Following a 34-10 loss to Auburn, Tennessee head football coach did his best not to dwell on the weekend that was. Rather, Fulmer and the rest of the Volunteer football team have their sights set on the Georgia Bulldogs.

"There's plenty to get ready for," Fulmer said when asked about traveling to Athens to take on the number-three team in the nation.

One of the biggest things the Vols will have to ready for is UGA quarterback David Greene who presents a myriad of problems for the Big Orange defense.

"He's bright," Fulmer said. "He runs their offense very efficiently. He throws the football where he wants to throw it. He's a guy that'll be playing on Sunday."

According to Fulmer, the Tennessee secondary is improving. Fulmer said the tackling has gotten better since the beginning of the season. He also praised Roshaun Fellows who started at cornerback for the second time this season.

"Roshaun Fellows made significant improvement," Fulmer said.

Georgia owns a four game winning streak against Tennessee, too. For some, it'll be the last chance they get to beat the Bulldogs. UT has ten players on its roster from the state of Georgia.

"They've played well against us," Fulmer said. "They're a really good football team."

On the injury front, the Vols were without Parys Haralson, Justin Reed, and Arron Sears on Monday because of injuries sustained in the Auburn game. Brad Cottam and Derrick Tinsley were in green no-contact jerseys.
