It's the first quarter of the Tennessee - Kentucky game on ESPN and The Hater and I are pumped. We can't decide if we're more excited to see them play on television, or if we're excited for the RANKED 14 next to their name. They're ranked first in the SEC for now -- which we would like to give credit to coach Bruce Pearl. He has manipulated a team of over-achievers, and they are on fire.
Someone made a really wise hiring decision in the athletic department when they hired him... if we knew who that was, we would probably send them a nice little card. The Hater says we really wouldn't send a card, but it's a nice sentiment.
We know it's going to be hard for our Vols to play away against the Wildcats, but we're sending all of our orange vibes across the prarie and across The River to add to their mojo. Go Team!
PS: I hope that Phil Fulmer is taking some general coaching pointers. Maybe Bruce's sub-contract included some private lessons for Phil...
