Tennessee Is Confident
Yeah … that’s the T-shirt being sold this week by Tennessee Sports Radio in anticipation of this weekend’s “other” big SEC East showdown.
The University of Tennessee football program is clearly feeling its oats after nearly knocking off a depleted Georgia squad two weeks ago in Knoxville.
The Vols lost 34-31 to the Bulldogs in overtime after wide receiver Pig (that’s right, Pig) Howard fumbled through the end zone on the team’s first possession of the extra frame.
After a bye week, head coach Butch Jones’ Volunteers (3-3, 0-2 SEC) welcome No. 9 South Carolina (5-1, 3-1 SEC) to Rocky Top on Saturday. Jones has made it clear he wants Neyland Stadium (all 100,000-plus seats of it) packed for this game – in which UT seeks to break a three-game losing skid against the Gamecocks.
We’ll have official game notes and a more thorough breakdown of this matchup soon … for now we just thought the “Butcher” shirt was pretty funny.
