KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Phillip Fulmer spent a lot of time Tuesday defending himself and fending off speculation about his job security.
Fulmer said at his weekly news conference that most of the talk about his job being on the line has been ``misinformation,'' though he said he doesn't bother paying attention to much of it.
The Vols (3-5, 1-4 Southeastern Conference) face South Carolina on Saturday night.
Fulmer defended his career, saying he has run a clean program throughout, has tried to develop academic and life skills in his players and holds a high winning percentage.
He acknowledged that the Volunteers haven't performed this season the way anyone wants them to, including himself.
