Butch Jones: "I Like Annoying Noises"
Tom Hanks famously said there was no crying in baseball. But apparently Vols coach Butch Jones thinks there should be crying in football.
Had to be tough enough for Tennessee practicing at eight o'clock Tuesday morning. And then Coach Jones piped in some really "LOUD" noises in an effort to get the guys to concentrate. Not crowd noises, but sirens and airplanes, and yes, babies crying.
Reporter-"Did you decide which sounds you would use in practice?" Said Jones,"Yes. That has kind of materialized over time. We went from music. We'll mix it up. I like annoying noises. I like something that really focuses you."
Reporter-"The baby crying was really affective." Said Jones,"That was a C-minus. We'll tune it up a little bit on Thursday."
