It was nice while it lasted I guess….
In a game officiated to the delight of perhaps only Ted Valentine, Tennessee lost to the Commodores and the referees on Tuesday night. Awesome.
First off, let me say that Vandy, for being the “Harvard of the South” has some of the most classless fans ever, and you know, ugly cheerleaders to boot.
Seriously though, just in case you guys didn’t get the memo, here’s the officiating rundown for the game.
1. First off, we’ve got Tennessee. Whenever they do anything… like say, pointing? That’s a foul.Yep, if they’re wearing any kind of orange, and do anything to even get CLOSE to anyone wearing a white jersey, go ahead and blow your whistle. In fact, when orange has the ball, just breathe through your whistle. It’ll just be easier, mmkay?
2. Next up, we’ve got Vandy’s side of the ref’s manual. If white does anything to orange, see if there is any way to foul orange. If it looks too too TOO bad, go ahead and don’t call anything. I know, it might seem weird, especially if people are being tackled to the ground, but still, trust me, it’s better to not blow any whistles, because you want to save the ‘ole cork ball for orange (see point 1)
Kevin Stallings said during his post-game interview…
We’re not much into gloating, we like to do it with class…
Um, I suppose you don’t speak for your fans in any way nor yourself as you do the bow to the student section? Ass.
Am I being a sore loser? Hell yeah, because we lost to the shittiest fans and some of the worst officiating I’ve seen this year. Crap, I think Tennessee just got T’ed up for me making that comment.
I suppose the good that came of it, the last 2 times the #1 team was beaten by Vanderbilt, the teams made it either to the Final Four (Kentucky), or the National Championship (Florida).
