Derek Dooley's Sunday teleconference

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tauren Poole knows the only acceptable reaction to Tennessee's fourth loss in five games is to stay strong emotionally and stay focused on improving on the field.

That doesn't mean the Volunteers' senior tailback isn't a little frustrated after being routed by a Georgia team that had been struggling. It comes a week after an agonizing loss to LSU.

Coach Derek Dooley is taking the Vols (2-4, 0-3 Southeastern Conference) back to basics during their bye week.

The Tennessee coaches plan to use their extra time to review their schemes and their players' performances.

They'll meet individually with the Vols to discuss how to improve and expect the players to set their own personal goals for the second half of the season.
