If Tennessee players begin to slack off during practice, Butch Jones is sure to catch it with the new technology he introduced during Wednesday’s practice.
A drone was flying high above Tennessee’s spring practice doing drone-like things (whatever those are). Jones told reporters following practice that the drone would be used to help with film study.

Still, it’s a little strange and probably pretty expensive.
The drone, which looks like a helicopter, has a camera somewhere to help capture angles the guys in the towers and press box apparently aren’t getting.
As far as we know, Tennessee is the first team to use drones during practice.
Wonder if this was a perk Jones worked into his initial contract? It looks like a pretty cool toy.
