    How far has Tennessee football fallen? There is a thread on Vol Nation asking "do we pull for Bama and Vandy?" Hahahaha. Never thought I would see the day when Tennessee was worried about Vanderbilt.
    I lived in Knoxville for eight years. You would be surprised how seriously they take the Vandy game as well as Kentucky. They really hate them. I get Vandy is in the same state but it isn't like they are on the same level.

    Yes, Vandy won this year but it was an upset. But they get really pumped for these two games. The Kentucky game used to be the Beer Barrel game. But about 20 years ago Kentucky had a player get killed in a drunken driving accident right before the game and asked that it be dropped. They are mad about that as well. Not sure why you'd get excited over a "rivalry" you win 95% of the time. Especially if the other team isn't really a football school.

    I lived there for all of Peyton's years and the next four. So they were at their peak then. But beating the Dynamic Duo of Kentucky and Vandy was really a big moment for them. Which struck me as dumber than throwing toilet paper in trees after beating someone.

    They hired someone else, but I think everyone on here would love to beat Coach Fullofmanure 60-0.

    I saw this on my Facebook feed today. This is from a game against Tennessee Tech, an FCS school.

    This is not an official UT page, but it is still pretty sad.

    I didn't think this deserved its own thread so I bumped this one. Getting excited about beating TTU fits in with their Life Championship.

    That game alone is worth giving Butch a 15 year extension to his contract.

    When I first glanced at the picture I thought that was LSU, and I said to myself, "That's not true; Tennessee fans are so pathetic." Then I realized it was Tenn Tech, and I said to my self, "While that's true, Tennessee fans are so pathetic."

    Just a few years ago Tennessee was a power in the SEC and their HC was talking about how Bama was irrelevant now and going down. Now Tennessee is irrelevant and in dire financial straits (one reason for the el cheapo Butch Jones hire) and Bama is flying high and rolling in the cash. How Wonderful. Remembering all the lies Fulmer told on us and then their financial difficulties reminds me of a verse in the Bible saying "you have much money but you have nothing because you have holes in your pockets," implying they were thieves and liars. LOL, go Viles.,

    Well if they decide to fire CBJ, then who are they going to get that's better?? I'm not sure if there are any big name coaches that would take that job. As Selma said in the thread of "Most tortured fan bases", I too feel like it's hard to imagine them having a run like they did back in the 90's. They don't get Manning W/O Ole Siss being on probation, Alabama, UGA, LSU, Clemson, the Miss schools, and even South Carolina are getting recruits now that the viles would have gotten 20 years ago. It seems like the best they can hope for is a one year wonder type run. They like Nebraska and Notre Dame are products of a bygone era.
