With alcohol sales allowed in Neyland Stadium I expect a lot of new Tennessee jokes this year.

Lulu: Why do you have a beer in each hand?
Junior: The doctor said to follow a balanced diet.

Tenn DB: “Hold my beer while I cover this Alabama receiver.”

I really wish Jeremy Pruitt had stayed at BAMA (especially for last year). I understand why he left but I don't think Tennessee is the right place for him. The TN game won't be relevant with BAMA until they beat us, which I don't see happening anytime soon.

Yes. This year it will be. I believe Tennessee will win 9-10 games. I believe this year it will be a much more tightly contested game than in years past. But when I say tight, I'm meaning more like two scores.
And what do you think about that now? [emoji16]

This series tends to go in streaks. We beat them 7 in a row with the 7th win coming in '92. They beat us 7 in a row from '95 to '01. I don't see UT being good again anytime soon, but I don't think they are gone forever. Every team ebbs and flows, and eventually they will be back. I doubt it will be anytime soon, though.

Yes, the Vols are kind of like locusts. They come out every 17 years or so.

In basketball, yes, but you are on the football board....

But Bama has had more streaks and longer streaks. Bama has had 4 streaks (12..., 11, 9, 7) as long or longer than UT's longest (7, which would have never happened apart from Bama's probation.). There is no real comparison between the 2 programs - Bama is far, far superior to Tennessee :).

I think I have gotten more enjoyment from Tennessee's faceplant than Alabama's win? Is that wrong? :biggrin:

I get the question for sure, but It’s relevant, because it’s Tennessee. At least for me.

If we continue to dominate them until my age group moves on, the old rivalry will die, I suppose. Which would mean they had fallen lower than that proud program ever has.......would be alright by me.
