Why not be an Alabama fan? Your program has the most National Titles, winning program against every SEC school, legends play for you, etc. No one can talk trash to you. You can talk down any fanbase in the SEC and they have no comeback. You own everyone.

I mean you can. You can also choose to have a dog turd for dinner. But why would you?

I will always be a UT fan. I've come to realize that the culture of this football program/ university is the reason football will never be good. This year the excuse will be covid even though everyone else had to go through it as well. Until we get a coach that is 100% football and expels all the external ********, this will continue to happen. This administration and this coaching staff have done a horrible job of this so far.

We are the one eating dog turds going 5-7 most years and being beat by Alabama so bad that the game isn't even worth watching anymore.

Meanwhile, Alabama has won 5 National Titles and will likely win the SEC again this year.

This is literally on Google:

Agree. I am about done. I nearly switch to Florida a couple of years ago. I am thinking about Alabama as well. I think there are now more Alabama fans in Tennessee than there are Tennessee fans. The school is utterly incompotent.
I'm utterly disgusted to tge point if not wanting to watch any more football this year. However, there's zero circumstances that would ever convert me to a fan of those teams. Or uga, or ky.

I go into the season super hyped and excited, only to eventually get to the point to where I’m watching to see just how bad we get beat. I get to the point where we’re down 33, and I find myself thinking “might as well make it 40”.

It seems like the same thing every year. I end up watching the game to see how much we lose by.

Does anyone else have this same experience? Man it’s been rough to be a TN fan.
That's because you have an entire offseason of not having to see JG play. Then you get 12 saturdays to see JG play and every Saturday he plays, it gets worse.

Lol... I’m well aware. But Alabama is still garbage and I hate them. Go root for bama all you want. Hop on that bandwagon, no one really cares.

It’s been rough. And it’s easy to lose positive perspective. But sport is cyclical. Florida sucked forever once upon a time. Alabama was a joke for a decade before the devil joined them. LSU spent a long time being a punchline. Then it didn’t. Then it did. Point is, success in sport is not permanent. It is cyclical. Think Tennessee basketball before Bruce, before Barnes. But better days can and will come. As long as the UTAD doesn’t settle for mediocrity, they will come. And after so much bitter ash, they will taste sweeter than anything the past twenty years of Tennessee have given us. Well, except maybe “Dobbs heaves it.” Damn that was amazing. Anyway.

As someone who grew up on the 80s and 90s Vols, I had it easy. I didn’t appreciate the dominance. I took it all for granted. If only I had known. And if Tennessee ever gets its mojo back, I will savor every morsel. I will read every article. I will talk so much crap. It will be wonderful. And that is how I view my experience following Tennessee.
I used to think sports was simply cyclical, and that's all there was to it. But the then cycle passed us by.. And then it did so again...

Tennessee football program is dead, it will never recover. We might as well except that it is now on the level of ole miss and miss state and barely that. The 90s were fun. I am in my mid forties and I can’t see Tennessee beating Alabama for the next twenty years.

We must have improved some. It took 10 quarters at the beginning of this season for my enthusiasm to wane. The last couple of years it only took the first 3 quarters of the season for that to happen.
