, I got a bit snarky (OK, a lot snarky) with some of these Vandy fans who suddenly had these visions of beating Tennessee for the first time in 20 plus years because we'd lost our two freshman phenom QBs for a couple of games. Needless to say, I am still gloating that Kentucky managed to beat Vanderbilt Saturday afternoon, thus deflating a lot of hopes. I loved how yesterday all the fans who last week were trumpeting Vandy's chances to be the Vols Saturday have turned this week and are calling this the worst team ever and talking about how the team is going no where and there are no signs of improvement.
Which brings us to this week's game...
Now, if you're a UT fan, you know that pretty much the Vandy game is a Vol's home game in Nashville. Has been for years. Well, this year Vandy decided they'd stick it to the fans in an attempt to keep the Vols' fans out--by hiking up tickets to $55 each! Now, the average Vandy ticket for any other game is $32. I think part of the idea is to discourage UT fans from coming to the game.
The funniest part--it ain't working. There are 5000 plus tickets left for this weekend's game according to this column by Joe Biddle
. We know Vandy fans aint coming...why pay $55 to watch the train wreck that is Vandy? And the thing is--come Saturday, UT fans will get those tickets, come in and turn your stadium orange. So stop trying to stick it to the UT fans the only way you can--off the field. You ain't' scored a point on the Vols in three years.
Oh and in case you were wondering--yes, I am planning to go the game Saturday. My sister found tickets for less than the price Vandy is asking and so I'm heading up to the game. And yes, I will be wearing orange and white.
