So, around say, 3:55pm on Saturday, most Tennessee fans were wondering if the 9 point spread was too low. Most were wondering by exactly how many points we’d beat hapless UCLA. And most were wondering how the momentum of the big win against a real opponent was going to help lead us to a possible victory in the Swam… OMG interception! OMG another one! ZOMG! WTF?
Of course, whenever a thought process changes from super duper happiness to AAs (angry acronyms), it’s not really a good sign. The game was a failure on many fronts. Of course, the most glaring weakness came from the offense where the bad QB play was only part of the equation. There was equally bad push from the offensive line, bad communication with the receivers, and even worse dressing by the UCLA pep band (honestly, Hawaiian shirts? what’s that all about?).
Cut to around 8pm Saturday night and most fans are wondering exactly how many points we’re going to lose by to Florida next week. Most are wondering when Nick Stephens will get to play. Most are wondering if the guy on Vol Calls was right about how Lane Kiffin won’t cut it in the league and how he fired a perfectly good DC in John Chavis to hire some guy that he’d never heard of.
But fear not fellow Vol fans. All is not lost. Apparently Lane Kiffin has a fall back plan. Of course, the plan revolves around the fact that he can probably skip town without anybody noticing since there are several people on the sidelines that look enough like him that the ESPN cameras keep cutting to assistant coaches and GAs. Am I seriously the only one to notice that?
The other fall back plan might revolve around the possibility that we will still beat Florida next week, and you know, everyone getting their parkas ready for hell freezing over. In fact, we like that idea so much, we’re going to coin that phrase in an homage to Terrell Owens.
So everyone: Get Your Parkas Ready! Hell’s about to freeze over. You know, or not.
