Checkerboards and Curses

Now for a little news from the Volunteer State:  On October 4th, Tennessee played their rival Florida at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.  Coach Butch Jones requested that the fans "checkerboard" Neyland Stadium in a pattern of orange and white.  While the color scheme is Dreamsicle and White, that is U.T.'s colors.  Even though the fans had little lead time for doing so, they turned out handsomely in orange and white:





Things did not go so well in the game itself.  Florida beat Tennessee, 10 - 9.  Some of the fans expressed their disappointment through a profane chant: "F**K Florida.  That was really trashy and low-slung!
