Comments

What in the world is going on in Knoxville? As usual, Tennessee struggled last season but suddenly, before the 2019 season, all the media was proclaiming the Vols to be back contending for a National Championship. I knew that was a little too early so now the juggernaut Vols get upset and the whole football world is upside down. They act like this has never happened before. Now we have players quitting the team after one game. Tennessee needs to beat BYU something awful. If the don’t Neyland Stadium might just fall into a huge sink hole.
