I noticed that Fat Bastard aka Philip Fulmer has gotten into the fray with some negative ditty about the state of Alabama. I don't think anyone ever accused him of being intelligent, but p I s s I n g off Alabama the week of the game is not smart.
Y'all dont believe me. It is so. UT wins. Uhem.... Uh..., I feel dirty not saying it.. Still.. UT gonna hang 35 on bama's 31... Really... Not really. Uhem, well, you know...
Fact:Tennessee is 2-26 vs Florida and Alabama in the last 14 years.
UT vs BAMA hasn't been a rivalry since Doug Dickey was head coach.BAMA dominated the series while both Battle and Majors were the coaches, then UT dominated when Fulmer was coach, now BAMAs back to dominating again.So it isn't a rivalry unless both teams can win every year or so and why we kept them on the schedule is ridiculous.The conference should be the same for everyone, play everyone in your division annually and everyone in the other division on a rotating basis.Personally I wouldn't kill a snake trying to crawl out of Alabama and I sure as hell never cared about watching them play football.
it's been tough to be a Tennessee fan, but that is what I am and will be. Under Pruitt, I think there is hope for some recovery but I still think opportunity to beat both UF and Bama in the same season (never mind UGA) is still several seasons away, and will absolutely correlate with one of those teams having a down season... guess which @OrangeAfroMan ?

Recent programs trying to replace a legend haven't fared too well.
Kinda funny to include Richt being replaced with Smart in that comparison.
