What will the SEC meme-makers do with themselves now that Tennessee has fired coach Butch Jones? Set their sights on Arkansas’ Bret Bielema, that’s what.
Jones has the distinction of being one of the most meme-able personalities in recent conference history. But the ebullient Bielema is not that far behind his former Volunteers’ counterpart.
The meme-makers tore into Arkansas this week, including a nice jab at the Hogs maligned quarterback situation and former signal caller Austin Allen, whose truck was infamously torched in a parking lot after a loss. After all, the Razorbacks gave the meme-makers plenty to work with between quarterback Cole Kelley’s DWI arrest, the firing of athletic director Jeff Long and the inevitable canning of Bielema.
Georgia’s bad loss to Auburn didn’t go unnoticed, neither. Nor did Alabama’s last-second win over Mississippi State. Plus, Forrest Gump and Crying Jordan make an appearance this week.
It also felt like a good time to bust out the classic Grudenmania meme, once again, to commemorate the annual rumors (or Grumors) about Jon Gruden arriving in Knoxville to coach the Vols.
We travel throughout the SEC this week to find the best memes.
