Saddest meteor game ever

I saw some Internet chatter about it, so I had to investigate, and sure enough — Florida has returned part of its ticket allotment for the Tennessee game.

You can see ticket availability for the game here.

Empty seats in Neyland for Florida-Tennessee.  Man, how the mighty have fallen.

To be fair, I’m not sure I’d pay over a hundred bucks for those crappy seats even in better times.

Georgia-Tennessee game time announced.

CBS is coming back to Athens, y’all.

Color me a little surprised CBS didn’t opt for Dan Mullen’s triumphant return to Starkville.

You get my kind of meteor game.

UPDATE:  Your sizzling hot take, courtesy of Saturday Down South

This is the biggest Tennessee-Florida game in at least a decade.

(NARRATOR’S VOICE:  It’s not.)

I don’t care who wins, but I’ll be profoundly disappointed if either team looks good in the process.

Epic day for the men in Urnge.

I can already tell this isn’t going to get old, at least not for a week.

There are debacles, and then there’s Tennessee’s SEC record over the last decade.

This is astounding.

The Vols haven’t won the SEC East division since 2007, and challenged only once.

They’ve had one winning SEC record in the last 10 years and three conference records of 1-7 or worse.

During that time, they’ve had a winning record against just two SEC teams – Kentucky and Vanderbilt – but the Commodores have won four of the last six. That hasn’t happened since before Gen. Neyland was hired to run the UT program in 1926.

… Since 2008, the Vols are 24-56 in SEC play: 24-32 against East opponents, 2-22 against the West.

It’s hard to believe but UT has a losing record against South Carolina over the past decade and a losing record against every team in the West, except Mississippi State (1-1).

If Tennessee manages a winning conference record, does Jeremy Pruitt get a contract extension?

Today, in better late than never

I mean, where was this contract provision twenty years ago?

Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer can be fired for cause if he fails to report misconduct as mandated by university rules.

I wonder if they can make the Knoxville PD abide by the same provision.
