Tennessee Vols head coach Butch Jones spoke at the annual SEC Media Days Monday in Hoover, Ala.

He said he can’t wait to get on the practice field with a Tennessee football team surrounded by both question marks and intriguing potential.

Jones was joined Monday at the press conference by Vols senior players Jashon Robertson, Kendal Vickers and Emmanuel Moseley. The trio was selected from a 17-member senior class that Jones praised for its leadership in the nearly seven months since the Music City Bowl win over Nebraska, according to GoVolsXtra.

Jones said the Tennessee football team had "the best summer they've ever had" and called them a blue collar football team.
