John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports
According to Volunteers head coach Butch Jones, he believes that the Alabama-Tennessee game is one of the top rivalries in the country and "the best rivalry in the SEC."

Here is what he had to say per the TimesFreePress.com:
quote:

Q: How did you feel about the SEC's decision to keep the Alabama-Tennessee rivalry in its future scheduling, and were you fighting to preserve it?

A: "Absolutely, because it's a part of our football program and the great tradition we have here. I think the Alabama-Tennessee rivalry is one of the best rivalries in the country, and I think it's the best rivalry in the Southeastern Conference. To be able to maintain that rivalry is something that we are very excited about."
Alabama has not lost to Tennessee since 2006 and leads the all time series 50–38–7. The Crimson Tide beat the Volunteers 45-10 last season.

Best rivalry in the SEC? What do you think?

Jesus, Justin. It was just a question. not an invitation to act like a douche. I'm sure you need no invitation to do so, but you can at least pretend not to be one in public.

"I want to know what's going on in the picture up there. The Bama guy looks like he's aiming a kick at someone's head."

It's call athleticism. You wouldn't understand. LOL!

I love how people still try to sell this. The Alabama-Tennessee "rivalry" is quickly headed the way of the LSU-Ole Miss "rivalry."

The old timers will soon be the only ones who care.

when was the last time UT won TSIO? How is that rivalry better than the Iron Bowl? Butch needs to quit getting his hair cut so high and tight...its impacting his thoughts.
