00:00 Butch Jones did not allow the players to speak to
00:02 the media today as was scheduled is that it's an honor
00:05 and a privilege to represent the university and his players did
00:08 not earn that today. He's looking for more from them. They're
00:11 not meeting. His standard when it comes to mental intensity and
00:15 mental effort. Early on in practice the media got to watch
00:19 a team drill offense vs defense eleven on eleven for the
00:22 first time. This fall camp we were not allowed to shoot
00:25 video of it during that period -- Peter -- took all
00:28 the first team reps at quarterback but Butch Jones told me.
00:31 That doesn't mean anything he just wants to get each quarterback
00:34 time with each senator an offensive line to build chemistry there
00:37 some of the things. That bush didn't like today. You many
00:41 balls on the ground and whether inaccurate passes were drops. Mental
00:44 penalties like off sides in the legal procedure some trouble with
00:47 snaps and not making field goals one other quick note Jay
00:50 Sean Robertson came in this year as a freshman a three
00:53 star defensive tackle which Jones says they'll move him to offensive
00:57 guard. He did play that position in high school also not
01:00 too big of a deal -- as they saw some things
01:02 in practice that they like from him and wanted to move
01:04 him to be offensive line. After practice the balls headed into
01:08 meetings where they will watch film and correct today's mistakes as

Day four of fall camp for the Vols wasn't the follow-up to a poor practice on Sunday that head coach Butch Jones was looking for. Butch withheld the players from speaking to the media, saying they have to earn the right to represent the university.
Butch Jones following Monday's practice:
Tennessee head coach Butch Jones was the only one who spoke to the media on Monday.
Notes from Monday:
- Butch Jones says the quarterbacks' accuracy has gotten worse.
"We have to go back. We have to look at our mechanics. A lot of it though is also our wide outs and tight ends and running backs running full speed routes, but you know we have to work on that."
- Nathan Peterman took reps with the first team offense. Jones says that doesn't mean anything. They are just trying to get each quarterback reps with each center and offensive line so they have familiarity in that regard
- Freshman Jashon Robertson will be moving from defensive tackle to offensive guard. The three-star played both positions at Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville.
Tennessee will be back on the practice field on Tuesday night.
