Vols Fans Upset At Saban’s In-State Speech

Sensitive Tennessee Vols fans were not happy that the keynote speaker at the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce benefit dinner on Tuesday night is Alabama head football coach Nick Saban.
The Chamber of Commerce’s president, Rob Preston, told the AP that he has received more than 100 complaints about Saban’s visit from Tennessee fans.
quote:

“We certainly did not do this to get people upset,” Preston said. “Some people say this is a combined effort to help Alabama’s recruiting. I know to you that sounds ridiculous — and it is very ridiculous — but (some) people think that’s what this is about.”

Preston notes that the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce hosted South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier in its first annual event yet didn’t experience anywhere near this much backlash.

Vowel fans are always upset about something. They're either singing that God-aweful "Rocky Top" or booing. Most of them couldn't find the UT campus if you dropped them off at Kingston Pike with a GPS.

This speech should take place in front of an empty room.

Thats because everyone wants to hear Spurrier speak. He's hilarious. I do not want to hear Saban repeat his Sabanisms over and over again while he details "the process" with his animated hand motions. I'd rather stick my genitals in a Magic Bullet. Recruiting is the last of your worries when you're sitting there trying to shove your manhood in an electric cheese grater.
