    It just seems to me, that the state of TN is really being forced. I feel that if UT had not had the Vols, that we would be calling them the Tennessee Vols.

    I mean, not EVERYTHING has to drive home the fact that we are in TN......should be pretty obvious. Outside of natives, no one knows that is why T-Rac is a raccoon and the reason we have three stars on the logo.

    The OP is on to something. Also, we don't clap with enough passion when good things happen for our team ... this is a big reason Cook wants out. And what if this stuff in weighing on players minds and distracting them in game with shame, and that is why they are so bad? Mike and Jerry may be wonderful coaches, and we are just ruining it for them!

    You can hear a pin-drop in our stadium even when we get a decent gain or good play. Used to, you'd hear a roar every time- even if a quiet one. Now? Bunch of old bores.

    I doubt half the people at our games even know the score at any given time.

    I remember those days of being one of the loudest in the NFL. The big way we got that noise is because our stadium has hollow plastic seats, and everyone use to stand up for the defense and violently beat their seat against their back rest until the ball was snapped. I think I may be the only one in the stadium that still does it, but usually a dozen or so in my section will join in and help me make a bit of noise.

    Too many women and children at our games.

    A few of us were in 144, while everyone else had the Munchak face going.

    I like how we decided to replace Nickelback with Usher after we score. So much better!

    What am I in 6th grade right now? Christ... I'd rather they play Good Charlotte, Green Day, or any of that 7th grade poser crap than those two.

    The rest of the music besides Usher and Nickelback has been alright for the most part, actually.

    As for the chants, there is simply no creativity involved and no one wants to participate in them because they're embarrassing.


    Speaking of Green Day, ESPN has a boner for their new horrendous song... they use that song for every single NFL highlight reel. Total disgrace.

    I should not have to watch my mouth the whole game. We should all be able to scream terrible things at all times.

    But since little Billy has to sit right near me, I have to tone it down. At the Ravens game last year, I let a lot of potty words go anyways... that kid's mom's face when she turned around at me. lol
