    I recently found this video on youtube. It's some great footage from the Knoxville area in the 1920s. For you UT grads, you can see Ayres Hall and Shields Watkins Field back in the day.

    they danced for little reason back in the day. I did enjoy the extreme wagon ride. And everyones suites fit great back in the day. Who knew you could play kickball in your interview clothes.

    Overall it was just nice too see some footage of the last time the Vols beat Florida
