Manning spoke glowingly about Butch Jones, "I am excited about the direction Butch Jones has our football program headed in. I feel like we are getting back to competing for championships. I believe in him, I believe in his direction, his philosophy. We spend a lot of time talking and he has shared with me his vision and his approach and it's very impressive. 

"I still get to go back and workout with the team every June. It's a lot of fun for me. Dobbs told me he wasn't even born when I was a freshman at Tennessee, I appreciated him sharing that with me.

"The energy there is very noticeable, it reminds me of the energy we had during my time there, all the years I was going back working out with Coach Fulmer's teams. The energy, the focus, the guys are really working hard. Then, the talent, I'm seeing the talent coming back ... Those are the kind of players we need to get us back where we want to be. Plus, they are all great kids. They believe in Butch Jones, they are excited about being at the University of Tennessee. They take pride in it, for all those reasons I am very excited about where the Tennessee football program is headed."

He also talked Chicken Parm, Paul McCartney, Chevy Chase and more.

Jones Updates Vols' Quarterbacks Situation On 104.5

Tennessee head coach Butch Jones had his weekly visit with 3HL on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville on Thursday evening. He provided an update on the team's quarterbacks. 

"We will know a little bit more tonight and into tomorrow," Jones said of Justin Worley's status. "He has taken some shots. I believe it is a cumulative effect, not just from the Ole Miss (game), but a very, very long season. So, he's meeting with our doctors again to see exactly where he's at and how we move forward."

Jones added the following about the Vols' signal callers, Nathan Peterman and Joshua Dobbs.

"The great thing about how we practice is that we try to get both Josh and Nate, over the course of the season, very, very premium reps, very important reps throughout practice," said Jones. "You know it's a long season. Again, as we have become accustom to, you need more than one quarterback, especially in thos conference. They have taken some valuable repetitions over time and if Justin isn't able to go, they will be ready to step up and we would play both quarterbacks, if Justin doesn't go on Saturday."

Dobbs has experience playing against Alabama, as he relieved an injured Justin Worley last season. 

"It helps, anytime you have live game opportunities," Jones said, "with Nate last year, then this year, and Josh last year. His first action as a Vol came in the Alabama game. So again, there is nothing better than live game opportunities."
