Tennessee hasn’t beaten Florida in 11 tries. That nagging fact did not stop these confident Vols fans from telling the world their team can beat Alabama twice this season.
During the ABC telecast of Alabama’s 52-6 blowout win against USC, the cameras focused in on a suite at AT&T Stadium which appeared to be occupied exclusively by a group of Volunteers backers.
They had to bring the smack talk to “Jerry World” in Texas to prove a point — they’re ready to end a nine-game losing streak to the Crimson Tide. Apparently that stellar overtime win over Appalachian State Thursday came with a side order of delusion.

The all-Vol suit had a Tennessee flag hanging, with the following message directed at the Crimson Tide faithful: “We got this! 10-15-16 And again!! 12-3-16.” Those dates, of course, denote Tennessee’s regular-season meeting with the Crimson Tide and the SEC championship game.
By the way, Tennessee plays host to Florida on Sept. 24.
First things first.
