During the very vicious and very serious rivalry that is Tennessee Volunteers vs. Vanderbilt Commodores, wide receiver Jauan Jennings appeared to have intentionally stepped on a Vanderbilt player’s face during a sideline scuffle:
Jauan Jennings should be kicked out of the game & off the team...— Baylor Cook (@j_baylorcook) December 1, 2019

No flags were called, and Tennessee won 28-10.
It’s not a for certain clear view, but from what we all can see, the evidence is pretty damning that Jennings gave a cleat to the poor man’s face, which should be an automatic suspension for most programs.
This isn’t the first time Jennings has been in trouble with the program. In 2017, he was kicked off the team for a profanity-laced social media rant criticizing the team’s interim coaching staff after Butch Jones was fired. However, he was later reinstated by newly-hired coach Jeremy Pruitt.
This is certainly not a good look for Jennings and the Volunteers. We’ll see what Pruitt does, or says in terms of the team’s upcoming bowl game.
