An alert reader tipped me to this story. Clever catchphrase, Vol fans.
The SEC East is a really strange neighborhood these days.

We were wearing similar red hats in Chicago in reference to our own program last year, so for once I cannot throw stones at UT.
Welp, that’s embarrassing. For you, I mean. 😉
Embarrassing for the program.

Wearing a “Make __________ Great Again” hat makes you look like a douche bag.

It appears to me that you are implying that anyone who disagrees with your politics is a douche bag.
So I leave it to the casual observer to determine just who that makes look like a douche bag.
I didn’t say wearing that hat made someone a douche bag. Just that they make someone the look like a douche bag. I’m sure the hat looks great on you.
My wife says I am not a hat kind of guy. So I don’t wear them.
And I didn’t say you said wearing the hat made someone a douche bag. I said you implied it. Which, clearly, you did.
No, the hats have a bad shape, but they work for Trump supporters. Then people come along and steal the idea. It shows a total lack of imagination and looks douchey, IMO.
You ever see the movie Caddy Shack? Danger field says, “Ohhh, that’s the ugliest hat in the world, but it looks good on you”.
How bout “Hope and Change’?
In the context of Georgia football, not anymore.
Actually, amazing how anyone can oppose either one of those. Just shows how hopelessly divided we have become, and it has nothing to do with content, or substance. But I really do hope TN football doesn’t change, or become any better…evah.
But the “engineer looking” crown hat shapes do look bad. Some of my old golf memorabilia photos look funny because of them, and I still end up with a few of those around because I like the hat color and didn’t pay attention to what the crown looked like. Still looks better than the flat brims though.
I didn’t see any.
Yeah, because without a doubt you laid eyes on every single UGA fan in Chicago. I mean, Chicago isn’t that big right?
I think that the word “we” may have been a little broad. That was my point.
Had he said “I” (or “me and my idiot friend dudemankind”) it wouldn’t have surprised me if I missed it.
No, that is not what you meant. You are such a self-important, know it all, egotistical………..wait…I forgot…nevermind….you are just the Senator’s made up troll…about as real as the Easter Bunny. I might as well converse with the wall. Nevermind.
You mad bro?
“Senator’s made up troll”? That’s being kind of paranoid isn’t it?
He got an anonymous tip.
Dude, if you honestly believe that the Senator would make up a sock-puppet identity just to insult his own readers in the comment threads, then I gotta ask, what the fuck are you still doing here? Don’t you have any self-respect?
They believe Qanon and don’t leave. Why would this be any different?
Damn y’all. Cant we stay focused and just agree any orange hat with the letters ut on it is an abomination and deserving of ridicule? Can’t we all just get along?
I might stay around just to piss you off Chilifarts.
you are just the Senator’s made up troll…about as real as the Easter Bunny.
Either I’m really confused or I need to ban myself for a violation of the blog rule about sockpuppets.
I know it’s self-serving, but I’d like to think this accusation could have been much worse for you.
So that was not you who used to always show up to piss us of under a strange new moniker …with stats…every time you were on holiday?
You might want to consider toning down the conspiracy theories.
You might might want to get a clue . I am not the only one who observed this.
I’d suggest you get rid of the tin foil hat and pick up one of those nice orange ones. It’ll look good on you.
WTF are you talking about?
Speaking of sock puppets, I saw a Rolodawg post on the Dawgnation forums the other day. Remember him?
Rolo may be many things, but a sockpuppet isn’t one of them.
Note: Whoever wrote the above message was not me. Someone else typed by name in the box.
Boom…is that you?
I can abide the hat I suppose.. but that Orange color is just a bridge too far for me.. It makes my retinas bleed.
I like using the phrase ironically, like, “Make Sanford Stadium Concessions Great Again,” but this stupid slogan always seemed like a joke to me.
Also, where’s the dumb rope across the brim?
I’d be for wearing a hat that says “Just make Sanford amenities reasonably decent for once”.
What are you people bitchin’ about? We’re winning, right??????
Actually, they have a T-Shirt for that.
“Make bathroom floors piss-free again”
I went to school in 1977, graduated in 1980 and have been attending games ever since. I don’t recall that the concessions were great any of those years. It may have been a while since Sanford Stadium concessions were great.
For another ten bucks (plus tax), pair it with the Vol Foam Hand Sign.
Also on clearance.
UT will never see the days of Fulmer/Manning/1998 ever again, and they were damn lucky to see them in the first place.
The state’s population is a small 6.7mm, while Georgia is at 10.4 and Florida at 21. Tennessee is closer to South Carolina (5mm) in terms of population and overall resources, although Nashville has become a first tier city, for what that is worth.
UT’s glory era came at the expense of Georgia losing battles for in state talent. This is well documented. That ain’t happening again folks. Tennessee, South Cack, and Clemson all make a living off of Georgia talent. Everyone raids Florida (pop. 21mm).
I understand it only takes a roster of 85 to build a champion, however Tennessee has nothing to offer that it’s enemies do not already provide.
It is highly unlikely that the Vols will ever see a period of sustained success that they experienced in the 90’s. The landscape has forever changed.
They had pretty good success under the General.
Yes and Tech beat Cumberland 222-0.
Modern times buddy. Modern times.
Once, dinosaurs roamed the earth!!!! But, that shit has been over a while, and it ain’t coming back. Accept it.
Dinosaurs, like Neyland?
No, he and his maxims are not returning to Knoxville.
Back in his day, Georgia’s population was at 3.45 million, Tennessee was at 3.31 million, Florida at 2.81 million Those are figures from 1950. The one lesson I would take from their success of 20 years ago is that it depends in great measure on sustained mediocrity in Athens. Such was the case through most of the 1950s as it was during the majority of the 1990s.
Exactly. UT needs Georgia. Most every school does. UGA does not need Tennessee.
The phrase, “first tier city” made me laugh harder than it probably should have. What criteria must be met to be a first tier city?
Hope they give one of those hats to every visiting recruit. Really, just cut the b.s. and go back to white hoods and burning crosses.
I’m sorry but that may be the stupidest thing I have ever read here.
Hot take: this thread will escalate quickly.
Go mountaineers! We need to bury these peeps by half time.
Just kidding. The conference loyalty thing is a non-starter with me.
agreed. I guess it’s a silver lining if an SEC team I hate wins against an out of conference opponent, but let’s face it: every time Auburn gets its ass kicked, an angel gets its wings, and also a 40 ounce Guinness. Ditto UT, the Gators, the Chikins, etc. Anyone else see a pattern here? While I enjoy pointing out the toughness of the SEC, I wouldn’t pull for most any of the other members without a substantial and distinct benefit to UGA
40 ounce Guinness? Is that a real thing?
WHERE DO I GET ONE
I’d like to see one that says “From Brick by Brick to Shit a Brick.” But maybe that fits better on a tee instead.
This still makes me laugh.
Real life is funny. This cracks me up as well.
UT was never great.
Tennessee: Make Type 2 Diabetes and coded racism great again!
Tom Herman ordered a bunch
There’s a relatively new pizza joint down the road using “Make Pizza Great Again.” Their pizza sucks.
So does President T- oh never mind.
Football really needs to get here soon so we can take a break from arguing about political bullshit and instead argue about more important football bullshit.
Jeremy Pruitt = stable genius
President Trump said it best. Y’all hate him because he is richer than you, smarter than you, and he is President and you’re not.
He sure doesn’t write like he’s smarter than me. 🙂
I don’t like Trump because he’s an incompetent asshole who’s using his office to make himself richer while he fucks over most other people. Well, that and a few other things.
Wrong. I already told you why you don’t like President Trump.
Squirting some reddi-whip on a turd and telling me it’s a banana split don’t make it a banana split, precious.
You have a strange diet, precious.
Thinking Trump is smart takes an exceptionally stupid person. Of course that’s never been a secret. His base is literally comprised of only poorly educated people. The same kind of rubes who think the character he played on The Apprentice is who he is in real life. You know, wrestling fans that get upset when you tell them it isn’t real.
Poorly educated? I don’t know how you define “poorly educated” but my education consists of the following: Bachelors degree from UGA, Doctorate from the Medical College of Ga, and 4 years of post doctorate training. You might want to look up the definition of “literally”. I think it is obvious that you are the exceptionally stupid person.
Jesus Gurkha, you’re a highly educated medical doctor, and the best you can come up with is “Wrong. I already told you why you don’t like President Trump.”. I’ll discuss Trump with a 10 year old if I want that kind of weak ass response.
Just fucking with the commies on a slow Friday. My original comment was just a good natured jab at the Trump haters. The Senator responded with a good natured jab of his own. It was you Doug and Chili who started the bullshit flame throwing. Relax and enjoy the gains in your 401k.
Flame throwing? The worst thing I said was Trump is an asshole. What’s he gotta do, grab you wife or daughter by the pussy for you to at least admit that the truth?
Jesus Walt, I’m a dumb-ass farmer from NE Georgia and I got Ghurka’s joke. Lighten up dude.
I’m very relaxed. I don’t have to get worked up to call Trump an asshole.
