KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee coach Butch Jones believes the use of some unusual sound effects this spring can help the Volunteers make a little more noise this fall.

The honk of a car alarm or the roar of a jet engine occasionally have replaced the standard soundtrack of rock and rap music during the Vols' first spring practice under Jones.

Every now and then, Jones gets particularly creative.

The Vols heard the wails of a crying baby as they attempted to communicate during red-zone drills last week. In a scrimmage Saturday, wide receiver Alton "Pig" Howard tried to field punts while the oinking sounds of pigs came over the loudspeaker.

Introducing all those sound effects to practice is part of Jones' mission to make sure the Vols avoid getting distracted in tight situations.
