The Tennessee Volunteers are struggling. More specifically, the Tennessee offense is struggling. After a spark this weekend against South Carolina, the unit once again fell flat, getting shut out in the second half against the Gamecocks.

Jalen Hurd’s stepdad took notice, posting this comment on Facebook.

Hurd’s time at Tennessee spiraled down the drain around this time last year, when he ultimately decided to leave the team. It was announced this April that Hurd would be transferring to Baylor. He’s currently sitting out this season due to NCAA transfer rules, but plans to play for Baylor in 2018.

As for the comments from Hurd’s stepfather, I agree with him. This offense has frustrated me for years, but Joshua Dobbs was able to cover up some deficiencies. The scheme seems to lack creativity. The staff doesn’t seem to change things up or make adjustments when things are getting stuffed.

It’s easy to point fingers right now, but it’s clear that Butch Jones and the staff has had their fair share of rocky relationships. And let’s be honest — Butch is an easy target. His team has seemingly fallen apart. Recruits are decommitting. Alabama and a trip to 3-4 is up next.

I don’t envy his position.
