Hurricane Steve Is Headed Back To Knoxville

I just checked the forecast, and apparently, they’re calling for rain in Knoxville, Tennessee all day today. According to weather reports a class-5, hurricane is coming up the east coast from South Carolina. They’re calling the storm Hurricane Steve and it’s already begun raining on the parade of Tennessee Volunteers football.

Like a drunk in a run-down bar, South Carolina’s head ball coach Stephen Orr Spurrier is always looking to take a cheap shot. The Ole Ball Coach runs his mouth more than he ran Marcus Lattimore a few years ago.

Now that Clemson finally got that monkey, or should I say Gamecock, off their back last season, the OBC decided to give Dabo Sweeny a break and find a new target to prey on. So he’s going old school and taking shots at his former rival from his days at Florida… Tennessee.

USC East just wrapped their worst season since 2009, going just 7-6. After recording an 11-2 record in each of their previous 3 years, Spurrier told reporters he thought 2014 was only a “decent year.” But then he made Rocky Top’s Smokey Mountains even smokier by spitting straight fire. The OBC added, “In Knoxville, they’re still doing cartwheels because they went 7-6 and won a bowl game.”

Gamecock. Set. Match. Even Ndamukong Suh can’t believe Spurrier would stomp a guy like that when he was down.

Yeah, Tennessee beat SC East 45-42 last year, but ya know, Steve’s not wrong. Tennessee isn’t what they once were. Since 2008, the program has seen 4 head coaches. Fulmer. The Kiff. Dooley. And now Butch Jones. They’ve only qualified for a bowl 3 times, and they’ve won just 5 games in 4 of those seasons. When I said Spurrier was raining on their parade, I meant it. Vol fans celebrated their Bowl win like it was a Super Bowl win. Could you imagine if they won a more prestigious bowl? Like the Belk Bowl.

Just be sure to pack an umbrella this weekend Knoxville. Because this rain is planning to remain in the area and keep things damp until at least November 7th when Hurricane Steve takes a trip to Neyland Stadium.
