Tennessee Fandom is Strong

College football is filled with passionate fans. That of course, is understating things quite a bit, but nothing tops the Vol fan that, despite having a gun pulled on him by a member of the Tennessee football geam, still wants to see the player lacing them up on Saturdays:

Corey B. Zickefoose, 20, said he was sitting in the driver's seat of a 1998 Hyundai Elantra on Cumberland Ave. when one of the players pulled a gun and demanded money.

But that's not enough to prevent the players from being kicked off the team, he told 6 News.

"I think they should still be able to play football, regardless," he said. "Tennessee is my place. It's my football team."

"Even after they put a gun in your face, you say let them play football?" 6 News asked.

"Yeah, it's Tennessee. That's the way it is sometimes," Zickefoose said.
