The scene from Knoxville last weekend was somewhere between The Wolf of Wall Street and the final scene from Braveheart. After beating Alabama, Vols fans deservedly stormed the field and carried their goalposts as a badge of honor after years of suffering over the boys in orange and white. Once the hangovers wore off, Tennessee fans quickly realized that…they kind of need goalposts to play their home game this weekend against UT Martin. So the Twitter account of Tennessee football turned to fans, alumni, and ‘Bama haters of the world for a fundraising drive it said would go toward purchasing new goalposts. As of today, they’ve already shattered their donation goal. The most common donation number? 16, representing the Volunteers’ first victory over the Crimson Tide in 16 years. That’s what this program means to the great people of Tennessee. The Vols are now ranked No. 3 in the AP Top 25, their highest ranking since 2005, with no signs of slowing down. Heisman hopeful Hendon Hooker is living up to his last name, going through opposing secondaries like they are strangers in the back of a Kia Forte the night before the electricity bill is due. Hooker is second in college football with a QBR of 91.2; he’s thrown for 15 touchdowns and only one interception. Jalen Hyatt looks like he may be the number one receiver drafted in April, as the junior finished the Alabama game with a school-record 207 yards and five touchdowns.
The Vols have more offensive weapons than Kim Jong-un could ever dream of, with a defense that defends the runs better than Pepto Bismol. Tennessee’s defense only gives up 93.5 yards on the ground, good for sixth in the country. Apart from their secondary, the Volunteers are about as flawless as Scarlette Johansson. So the question isn’t will Tennessee beat UT Martin? It’s by how much. Well, Josh Heupel knows his team is in position for the College Football Playoff right now. As great as a win at home against an SEC powerhouse has to feel, he knows the Vols can’t take their foot off the gas. Tennessee eviscerated UT Martin 50-0 in 2012 in the lone previous meeting between the schools. The UT Martin Skyhawks are 1-29 all-time against FBS programs, including a 30-7 loss to Boise State on Sept. 17. Vegas like the Vols -37.5, but I think they will win by more than that. There’s no reason not to believe in the Josh Heupel era of Tennessee football, no matter how much he looks like an older Shane Gillis (shoutout to the Young Bull), sometimes on the sideline.
