2. No, we never come up with a name. (Even the Tennessean abruptly dropped efforts to name it in the run-up to the 2016 game.)
3. Yes, it's a rivalry, particularly if you live in Greater Nashville. We've been playing them forever. Georgia dominates Tech but it's still a rivalry. Any in-state, continuously played series is a rivalry. If it's not, why do we play it. We dominate Kentucky but it's a rivalry and used to have the beer barrel.
4. Yes, it needs a name.
5. Yes, you DAs who pooh-pooh the idea of a name, or that this is a rivalry, are way too dumb to have some fun. Get over your DA selves.
6. I like the aforementioned Crockett Bowl. Or the Whisky Barrel. Or the U.S. 70 Showdown or Skirmish. Or the I-40 Fight. Or the Country-Bluegrass Bowl. (Music Bowl is sort of taken but it would be good.) Or the Battle of the Cumberlands (the river v. the avenue). Or the Battle of the 'Villes (Knox v. Nash). Or the OverMountain Skirmish.
I'll contribute my royalty checks to the University if one of these is chosen.
