The last time the Volunteers won the SEC in football:
- Clinton had not yet been impeached
- The Columbine massacre had not yet occurred
- Napster did not yet exist
- Lance Armstrong had yet to win the Tour de France
- Gene Siskel, Joe DiMaggio, JFK Jr, Wilt Chamberlain, and Walter Payton were all still alive
- The original Matrix had yet to be released
- The #1 song in the country was Cher's horrific "Believe"
