Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

New Tennessee athletic director John Currie does not want to fire Butch Jones, and has made that clear. But games like today's -- a listless performance against an 0-4 UMass team that Tennessee couldn't put away until the final minute, before a largely empty Neyland Stadium -- hurt Jones. The Vols haven't looked great in three of four games, despite a 3-1 record. The Georgia game will be huge for the fifth-year coach.
