    I agree. I check in over on one of their boards from time to time. Checking in today and I see some of the humor 10RC fans are employing to salve the wounds: "

    The wife and I were planning on going to this one but the time just took it out of play with our sitter.

    i'm actually glad to see this for selfish reasons. i am flying back from california that day and my plane lands at 9 pm eastern. i live close enough to the airport that, assuming the usual delays in start times, i should be able to see almost the entire game

    Re: Third Saturday in October time announced

    I'll be taking my son (7 years old) to this one. We're coming from Atlanta, so this game will technically be past his bedtime, but I think he'll be just fine. He's been begging for us to make it over and he has a respectable level of disdain for Twelversee given we've been beating them since before my wife and I started dating.

    It will make for a long day though, so this one better be a blowout in favor of the good guys by halftime.
    I remember my first game as a child and the amazing feeling I got when I first walked into Bryant-Denny. I still get that same feeling every single game.

    I thought this was going to end up being an 8pm kickoff game. We usually have one of them per season it seems.

    I was hoping it would be an hour or so sooner since it will start at 9pm here in GA. Glad Bama will get to use the new stadium lights though.

    Isn't this Bama's homecoming game? Should be a wild weekend for the students.

    I think TN has a bye week this weekend so Pruitt will probably install some tricks and not let anyone know who the starting QB will be for the game vs Bama.

    I think I read where Arik Gilbert may visit for this game. It will be a great one for him to visit!

    I work every Saturday and don't get home til around 6:00. So far, this season, I've had to record the games, avoid all social media and watch after I get home. This will be the first one I get to see live

    I had feeling that this would be our first night game and I am happy to see it, but they did wait until we got past the heat and they of course gave us the dreaded 8:00 p.m. slot that will make it a late night getting home after the game. Kick-off will be 8:15 or later and it will be about midnight before it finishes. Loving another opportunity for a beatdown!

    I keep hearing on the radio and seeing on the Vol boards how they're finally "getting it together" because of the first half against Georgia. But what I think they don't understand is that Georgia slept through the first half. If Georgia had been prepared and took them seriously before getting behind, it would have been an even bigger blowout.

    We haven't had many problems with slow starts on offense the last 1.5 years. My guess is their moral victory will come from getting a 10 points or so in the first half after getting down 3 or 4 scores.

    If our guys come to play, this could actually be worse than last year’s 58-21 beat down. Have we ever dropped 60 on the Vols?

    Seems like as good of time as any to try
