knoxville, tenn. - tennessee tailback montario hardesty did not appreciate being left out of the volunteers' running game in a 41-17 loss to alabama.

hardesty expressed his anger to a reporter from web site volquest.com as he was exiting the field saturday.

"(expletive), you tell me," hardesty said when asked why he didn't play against the crimson tide.

the sophomore missed a rare sunday practice, which coach phillip fulmer called after tennessee's worst loss to archrival alabama in fulmer's 16 seasons as head coach of the vols (4-3, 2-2 sec).

fulmer wasn't aware during practice why hardesty was missing, but said he learned later that hardesty was sick and had left a voice mail with running backs coach kurt roger.

"montario hardesty was sick in bed with a 102-degree temperature sunday afternoon and evening," fulmer said monday. "i talked to montario this morning. he was sorry for any concern he may have caused. he has been to the training room this morning and is feeling better."

hardesty's father, kevin hardesty, told the knoxville news sentinel that his son would be at team meetings on monday and would attend today's practice.
