We had what a 28 home winning streak on UK? They are historically a much worse team than us. I never seen their players or fans whine and cry about stopping playing us or moving to a different conference.
Some will say playing Bama on the third Saturday of October is a tradition. Some will say it is suicide. Well, after our administration threw themselves on the sword to get Pruitt out the door, we are gluttons for punishment.
However it hashes out with Texas and Oklahoma on their way in, Auburn and Alabama will move to the east. And the Vols will still have to play them every year. So, this is pretty much a moot point.
The.problem is, we don't have any one main rival IMO. Some years I think it's Florida, some years Georgia, use to be BAMA, lately it has been Vandy.
Normally I don't consider VANDY a rival because they are not usually competitive against us and Bama probably doesn't consider us much of a rival anymore. Bama considers Auburn, LSU, Georgia, Texas A&M, Clemson as their main rivals these days.
Do you really have a rivalry if only one team thinks it's a rivalry?
