Believe it or not, you can still buy tickets to the Vols’ home games against Florida or Alabama if you’ll purchase them along with tickets to two other home games. Now no doubt some of that is due to a cooling of Urnge Ardor after a few seasons of mediocrity. And I understand that some of it is due to Florida returning some of its ticket allotment. Nevertheless, I don’t care how tough times have gotten, Alabama-Tennessee should always be a sell out.
Perhaps it’s time for Slive and the presidents to worry a little bit about whether they’re looking at a canary in the coal mine here.
