The Mississippi State Bulldogs travel to Knoxville, Tennessee, to take on the Vols. Being from Memphis, it’s easy to hate the Vols. They’re the fourth best football program in the state (Memphis, Vanderbilt, MTSU) but act like they’re a national power. UT is like Alabama but without the winning. Let’s get mocking.

Georgia State Football is .500 all-time vs. Tennessee

Regional powerhouse Georgia State has amassed 30 wins in their entire history while Tennessee has over 800. Georgia State is .500 all-time vs. the mighty Vols. Can’t wait to see how this rivalry blossoms.

Alcohol Enemas

“Butt chugging?...What in the world is that?”

Rocky Top is not the UT fight song.

Rocky Top cannot be considered one of the best fight songs because it literally is not a fight song. Listen to the real one here. They’re both terrible.

Checkerboard Overalls

Does more need to be said?

This ain’t 1998.

The Tennessee Volunteers had never ridden higher. Coming off a BCS National Championship, the Volunteers were going to dominate the 2000s, right? Well, they still think like they’re a national power but have no evidence to back it up. Put on some Natalie Imbruglia. Watch Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan and go back to 1998 because Tennessee is never going to match that success.

Todd Helton is the best quarterback in school history.

Tennessee has a horrible track record of QBs. I can’t think of any other QB besides former Colorado Rockies’ All-Star Todd Helton.
