I’m looking forward to it as I always will. You only get to see so many UT games in a lifetime. I’ll enjoy the day watching games and tossing the football w my kid. Firing up the smoker and having tasty food all day. Then weather be willing, have a nice fire outside and watch the game on a streaming TV. Some friends, some libations, some food, and some UT football. And I will root for the kids that wanted to be here and stayed through the mess.
. Probaly the worst fans in the SEC IMO. Me and my dad and cousin went in 1997 we got cups thrown at us and cussed at they peeled my dads UT decals off his truck. Now we were a top 5 team back in 97 and had Peyton the rivalry was fierce and even though we had as much talent or more than them we still couldn’t beat them much then. You couldn’t pay me to go down there again now for a game where we haven’t won since 2003 we will get boat raced again this year.
The points didn’t bother me. It’s the continuous lack of basic football fundamentals Tennessee continues to miss. I don’t think there’s a team in the country over the years that keeps that trend going other than Tennessee. Somehow Tennessee manages to do very well in week one, but falls flat in week 2. The 2nd quarter is a total wreck for whatever reason. Then the whole inside the 5 and penalty after penalty. We can’t make those mistakes and get where Tennessee wants to be.
Tennessee has talent and a lot of it but the frustration comes out when they don’t do simple things well and to expect it to get better in 2 weeks is a lot when we don’t have a good team to prep against.
