Wiedmer: Is there more wrong with UT football than two losses?

Johnson was the Vols' leading receiver with four catches for 37 yards in the 34-7 loss.

If you're a member of the Big Orange Nation and you expected to see what happened to your University of Tennessee Volunteers on a spectacular Saturday afternoon in Knoxville, raise your hand.

Didn't think so.

Kentucky 34, UT 7?

Inside Neyland Stadium? The Vols had whipped the Wildcats 17 straight times there dating to 1986, which just happened to be the longest home winning streak in the country for one Football Bowl Subdivision program over another.

Talk about rocky times on Rocky Top.

Or as third-year coach Jeremy Pruitt said of his team afterward in seeming to criticize his players' heart and hustle: "Talent alone don't make a good football player. You've got to have want-to. You've got to put the time in."

It would seem the time is now for the Vols to either improve or implode.
