KNOXVILLE - Butch Jones switched up Tennessee's midweek training camp schedule, swapping a day-night two-a-day set of practice for a closed scrimmage under the lights of Neyland Stadium.

The Volunteers' second-year coach wasn't exactly thrilled with the results.

Jones lamented the number of big plays his defense allowed and other mistakes after Tennessee's second preseason scrimmage on Wednesday night.

"As a whole, I didn't like our approach," he said. "I thought we lacked intensity and gave up way too many big plays defensively. I didn't think we came to play defensively, too many pre-snap penalties on offense and a lot of teaching moments.

"Some individuals now are starting to distance themselves from the pack," he added, "So we'll go back tonight, we'll grade the film and we'll start to define people's roles on this football team."
