Funny how that scroll reads "3rd and 7" but it's Halftime. You'd think espin would be better than that - no?

Living in Tennessee I know firsthand all about Tennessee Vol fans. I have many friends that are fans and my in-laws are alumni. And you're absolutely right, that fanbase is completely desperate for anything positive to happen for them. 

They still believe they are an elite program despite them being at or below average since 2008. They actually thought Gruden was gonna be their next coach. And UT fans are some of the first to blow the SEC trumpet when another SEC team wins anything. It's comical. 

My 2 favorite thing to say to Tennessee fans is: "Remember back when Tennessee was relevant? That was awesome." and "Yeah, Alabama (Florida, Auburn, LSU, whoever) won the title, but guess what? You had NOTHING to do with it!"

I remember that when I moved here in 2000, I had to get used to "UT" meaning Tennessee and not Texas. So now I refer to Texas as the "real UT."

Well they lost (badly) to all of those teams, so they did have a little bit something to do with it.

I may be in the minority here, but I find it sick, on some level, that so many adults, well past their college years, are on Twitter, not only tweeting 17-18 year old kids, but also begging them to come to the school for which they root. Even sadder is when they jump up and down when these high school kids follow them, or heaven forbid, retweet something they say. Then again, if you've ever been to a place like Knoxville, then you understand why something like that might be the highlight of their lives...

That's why I married a Tennessee girl, who was unaffiliated, and willing to become a Buckeye fan. Best of both worlds!

I also married a Tennessee girl who was unaffiliated. Even though her parents are UT grads they couldn't sway her. When we were dating I asked her why she didn't like UT and she said "I don't like Orange. Especially UT Oange."

Live in Nashville, wife is a Belmont grad so no UT lean. Our 17 year old daughter says " That orange is the ugliest color I've ever seen."

Gotta love her for that.

I can literally never get enough of that video.  I just wished he didn't end the video so soon so we all could of enjoyed a prolonged monumental meltdown.

Creating a twitter account titled "Get Torrence to UT" for the sole purpose of trying to convince a 16/17 year old to attend a particular college is the very definition of needing to "reevaluate life".

When I worked in the Gatlinburg post office I got so sick of hearing rocky top every five minutes I wanted to puke. I had to go to the union so I could wear my OSU jersey on UT Saturdays and nobody would get in my line to buy stamps because I was a G-- DAMNED YANKEE. They were hard to work with after those losses to Florida.

You know why they don't need flashlights in East Tennessee?

Because they just use the flames from the burning meth labs.

I love the joke about Tennessee wearing orange so their fans can wear the same shirt to the game on Saturday, to go hunting on Sunday and then to go collect garbage on Monday!

Is there a reason Gibson is even considering UT?  Is it just playing time?  I mean, to even have them as a threat is a shock.  Bama, FSU, even Auburn, I can understand-but we are talking about a bottom tier SEC school.

Last class and this class will be stocked full of offensive talent at every position except for the fact they have zero QBs..That might be attractive, and then to be told you can be credited as the guy who brought us back. I don't see the attraction either but Ive seen more talented kids buy into a lot less tempting situations.Tennessee is basically the *ichigan of the sec.

I hate it too but it seems to be working on him. All he does is talk about Tennessee. I cannot wait until he watches them this year. 6-6 at best this year. 

 

vs. Utah State - W

vs. Arkansas State - W

@ Oklahoma - L

@ Georgia - L

vs. Florida - On the fence about this one. Guessing L, could pull out a W.

vs. Chattanooga - W

@ Ole Miss - L

vs. Alabama - They could pull out a win if they try har-hahahahaha I'm sorry... L

@ South Carolina - L

vs. Kentucky - W

vs, Mizzou - L

@ Vandy - Probably W. 

 

So 5-7 I believe, 6-6 at best. Who knows if they go to a bowl. No impressive wins. Recruiting gets real during the season, Tennessee and their fans can have this momentum now.

Why anyone with NFL potential would want to go to Tennessee in their current state is beyond me.

Mortc15's picture

They really desperate for anything. I follow Torrance Gibson on twitter and he's constantly saying how UT fans are tweeting him most saying they absolutely need him and everything else. Well, they have to do that because they believe one player can change their program. Glad to be a fan of a program that getting or losing out on one recruit wont make or break the team for the next 4 years.

Would getting Gibson be big, absolutely. But OSU is in the position that they dont need him, it would just be nice to have him. UT fans seem to think they need him and every other top player to be anywhere near relevant again (which I dont think will happen in the near future)
