First off, this Saturday y’all are playing The University of Tennessee, the alpha wolf of college football in the State of Tennessee. We are not some 2nd rate team from some backwards conference. Despite having an off year, Tennessee is still among the elite of college football. The best. We have a tradition that goes back a long way. We have so many National Championships, so many bowl wins, SEC Championships, high national rankings, etc…and quite honestly Vanderbilt, you don’t have squat.
Understand that with that kind of resume comes respect. We expect the kind of respect that can only be earned. Tennessee fans carry that respect whether we are at home or on the road and a few things need to be understood. When you, James Franklin, Clay Travis and the rest of the Vandy bandwagon bootlickers roll into Knoxville you are going to see one of the movers and shakers in all of college football and the Vol fans are no exception.
First, there will NOT be any yelling in my ear during the game. I damn well don’t plan on having some trust fund baby from a lesser school like Vandy yell in my ear. I will ask you one time to stop and no more. I don’t mind clapping but this incessant yelling is out. If you continue then I will take a physical solution that you will not like. I will NEVER provoke but if you guys think that yelling in my ear is gonna be tolerated you are in for a big surprise. Same thing for the nanny that is watching over your snow-flake kids. Sure, they can be there but keep them out of my area and keep them quiet. If you cannot control your brats then you will be held responsible and I will take matters into my own hand. We don’t put up with that crap in Knoxville and I will embarrass you front of your frigidly snobbish wife and offspring. Be warned ‘Dore, you won’t enjoy it.
If I have to go to the restroom I don’t wait in line, I go to the front. This is an area where I have encountered some problems before so I am just making it clear now. A Tennessee fan has earned the right to not wait in some bathroom line and we choose to not do it. If you have a problem with this you had better go to a restroom one where Tennessee fans are not in. If you do decide to make an issue out of it then be prepared to face a physical solution. Ditto for concessions. We go to the front of the line. Not out of spite or to try to show you up. It is all about showing respect for the greatest teams of yore folks, the Tennessee Vols. GBO.
Again, if you have a problem with any of this I advise you to keep away from me
or the Tennessee contingent. I am very upfront and honest when I tell you that it ain’t nothing for me to up and kick a man’s ass. Done it several times and I’ll do it again if pushed. NEVER will I provoke, though. It is YOU that determines my actions and ultimately your fate. If you understand where I and the Tennessee folks are coming from and what is expected then we will have a great time and no problems will ever arise.
