Alabama and Florida are legitimate rivals. uga is a piece of trash that needs to have the gold gilding removed and sink back into misery where it belongs.

The others? They are our 'peers' right now because of systematic incompetence of the AD over the past 15-20 years, but they will never be rivals for me.

The way these teams have dominated us and rather easily for the last 15 years does beg the question or are we just another cupcake on their schedule. In reality we have a much more competitive rivalry with South Carolina and Vanderbilt and Mizzou than the big 3.

Neither. Vandy, UK, and USCe are competitive with UT right now... at one of the lowest ebbs in the history of UT football. They aren't rivals in any true sense of the word.

UT isn't a "rival" to those other schools right now either. If UT starts winning again and takes their share of those games... those rivalries can be resurrected. But right now they're like Lazarus... "Lord, they stinketh".

I would beg to differ since 2005 Vandy has beat us 6 times, Kentucky 3 and South Carolina 8 times. That’s fairly competitive.

Those are historic anomalies during one of the worst periods in UT football history. A rivalry is established when you have two competitors at or near their best.

I feel like Tennessee has been somewhat competitive with Georgia. We also typically lose to Florida in very close games, the problem is that we ALWAYS lose. Once in like 16 years is pathetic.

Alabama isn't a rivalry anymore. We are a joke to them. Auburn or LSU are more of a rival to Alabama than we are. Heck, even Ole Miss has played Alabama tougher in the Saban era. We could arguably be the worse annual opponent on Alabama's schedule when it comes to how we have historically performed against Saban.
