As Vol Nation descends into madness over this Greg Schiano news, Jauan Jennings took to Instagram Live again, but this time it was to apologize:
“I just felt like I need to its appropriate to come out and let the world know how I’m feelin’. Just to be real with you all. As a young man filled with passion for this game that I love I will admit that I was hurt to find out midway through the week that the decision to allow me to play that weekend against our state rival had been changed. With mixed emotions flowing after being notified of this decision I went to social media to voice my frustration. I want to first acknowledge the fact that I was wrong to do this and apologize to my family, my team, and administration and all of Vol Nation for my action. Since committing to Tennessee
I have always wanted to do great things for this university and for my state. Having been out with an injury for this season has hurt me and all i wanted to do was go to battle with my seniors and my teammates against Vanderbilt to end the season on a high note and carry the momentum into next season. My passion for this game and this team cannot be described in words. All season all I could think about was being on the field and helping my team win. It was painful for me to be sidelined by injury and effectively put me in a place where I did not feel like I could help the team since I wasn’t on the field. So when the opportunity came and i was cleared to be able to help this team I wanted to be out there.
All that being said, I’m a man and I take full responsibility for my actions. I am a Vol for life and I bleed orange and white. I plan to work hard with our new athletic director and whoever our new coach is and to do whatever to be placed back on the team. I am still fully committed to my goal to come back next year and lead our team to a national title. Thank you Vol Nation for the continued support and love. Jauan Jennings.”
Around the beginning of the second paragraph, Jennings become emotional and even began to cry. It is clear that this university and this team means so much to him. I wish we could say that about those overseeing the football program too. At this point, we need more Tennessee people who care about Tennessee. Reinstating Jauan Jennings would give us at least one.
