When both school's teams in both football and basketball aren't even in the top25 for years, it's not a rivalry. It's just two schools who play each other. So, really, who cares?
Denny, I guess the Vols should have stopped playing Bama in the late 90's and early 2000's in football and basketball as well? The Tide wasn't in the top 25 in either sport back then either. I'm not sure the when the Tide was even ranked in basketball in the 2000's? I'm pretty sure Tennessee was in the top 25 a whole lot more, even climbing to number one.
Exactly. At least Tn was ranked back then. Memphis football is NEVER ranked. UT football hasn't been ranked in years and won't be for years to come by the look of things. UT basketball's rpi is something like 127 and Memphis is not ranked.
Do you think someone is Jackson, TN or Johnson City TN would look forward to a UT / Memphis football game next year? It ain't Alabama / Auburn that's for sure.
Nobody ever said it was Alabama/Auburn, and we know for sure that you Crimson Tide fans like yourself turn up your nose at the thought of any other rivalry besides one that Alabam is involved in. This is what is wrong with you people, you feel the need to run your mouth about everything....Shouldn't you be out trying to stop your fellow Bama fans from committing felonious acts in the name of the Bear, or doing something else productive instead of making comments on a story that obviously doesn't concern you in the very least? Why even comment? I forgot I was talking to someone who's fanbase lights up the Finebaum show with complete ignorance while the rest of the nation laughs at them...You are prime example of the Gumps....
