Tennessee, I’m not sure you’re doing this slogan thing correctly.

Forget Booch for a minute and check out this metaphor:

Before the start of preseason camp, Kelly compared the Vols to a “snake in the grass” and said that “our goal is to end up biting somebody at the end of the day and making them pay.” Taylor made a similar reference in describing Tennessee’s underdog approach.

“I feel like we’re laying in the grass waiting to strike,” Taylor said. “Our team isn’t talked about as much now. I feel like we’re just waiting for our opportunity to shine.”

Gentlemen, I am not sure that phrase means what you think it means.  Feel free to knock yourselves out with it, though.


UPDATE:  Another whiff.

    “You know, it’s like I think we just missed the boat. And boats sink and we ain’t no sinking ship. At the end of the day we not playing with a full deck you know? It’s just a small porch or patio if you will, we gotta keep building that thing. We don’t want the whole 9 yards because it takes 10 for a first down last time I checked.”

    With the way they’ve betrayed their fanbase these past few years, I’d say that’s about right.
