Some fans have responses for James Guarantano. And they aren’t kind.
On Saturday, the father of Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano caused a few ripples when he used Twitter to send a “warning” of sorts to Alabama in advance of the Volunteers’ game against top-ranked Alabama at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
As you might expect, the tweet led to polarizing opinions. Some Tennessee fans loved it. But Alabama fans and some other observers? They didn’t exactly embrace it with open arms.
Check out a sampling of the more pointed reactions below.
after a couple of goliath hits he will be shaking in them cleats. No protection up front. Hes running for his life all day.

Jarrett may not be afraid now but I guarantee you he won’t want anymore of the Bama D by the 4th Q and want out of the game!!

The fact that you called them "Goliath" means you're already scared.
