Snakebit and waiting...

  • I'm mixing metaphors, but it seems like we have been snakebit so many times in the last 3 years that we are all waiting for the other shoe to drop. To quote Springsteen, "end up like a dog that's been beat too much, til you spend half your life just covering up." Between Fulmer, Kiffin, Dooley, CPS's EOD, Hamilton, Kentucky loss, swimming coach, and about a dozen more negative events, we are so desperate for good news that we are devouring every possible nugget of gossip. If it were possible to get PTSD from bad sports news, we Tennessee fans would be in serious trouble. The true Orange-blooded fans who stick with them through this will relish the good times more than anyone else. We will emerge from the darkness victorious, its just a question of when. Go Vols!!!

    Sums up my feelings pretty well. I keep hoping and praying that this is the bottom for our athletic programs. Regardless, I'll be in XX3 in time for pre game warmups in September. Go Vols.
