Aren't most UT players already used to the sounds of sirens, alarms, and babies (or some combination thereof)? Not sure if that'll be very distracting.
Rather than using piped in crowd noise — or ear-splitting loops of Rocky Top, which other teams use before facing the Vols — new UT coach Butch Jones went for something even more distracting as the Vol offense approached the end zone. According to The Knoxville News Sentinel’s Evan Woodbery, the loud sounds included:
* A crying baby
* A screeching siren
* The jets of an airplane taking off
* And “a car alarm wailing incessantly”
Jones had promised before spring practice began that he would use some unusual noises and sounds to try and break his team’s concentration during drills and scrimmages. Sounds — get it? — like he’s making good on his promise.
