If there’s one thing that cracks me up about Southern football rivalries, it’s listening to one fan base insult another about its lack of breeding/culture/class.
So, yeah, it’s safe to say that I got a laugh out of this quote from a former Tennessee recruiting coordinator (h/t The Wiz of Odds).
“We like to think that our facilities are bigger and better than everybody else’s,” he said. “In reality, they’re not. They’re as good as everybody else’s. Alabama, Florida, LSU, Georgia – they’ve all got nice facilities.”
So what makes UT special?
“I’d like to think that Tennessee has got some class to it,” Higdon said. “We’re not a real red-neck group of people.”
I thought being a red-neck was like being pregnant: you can’t be a little bit of either.
