Ethan Wolf believes Tennessee’s football team is in a better state of mind.

The Vols’ senior tight end said Thursday that change was needed following a 2016 season that included disappointing losses to South Carolina and Vanderbilt.

“I think there were a lot of guys that needed to self-evaluate their work ethic in the weight room, and a lot of guys have (done so),” Wolf said.

Wolf included himself in the discussion of players that needed to improve following last season. He cited multiple dropped passes as a source of motivation.

“That was one thing that just ate me alive for those few months from the game to now,” he said.

Wolf believes a new approach from the Vols will lead to more success in 2017.

“We just realized that winning nine games isn’t what we want to do,” Wolf said. “We want to do everything. We want to win them all.

“We want to win a national championship and we’re not gonna do that if we’re not as close as a group as we possibly can be. I think that kind of flipped the switch and everybody realized that that’s what you’ve gotta do to do that.”
