Tennessee Volunteers: A Touch of Class
I've given Tennessee a rough time on this bog in the past, and being a Georgia fan, I'm sure I will again in the future. However, I need to give credit where it is due. I was very impressed with the Volunteer football team for the way they responded to the Marcus Lattimore injury Saturday in their game with South Carolina. Most of the Tennessee players gathered at midfield opposite the Gamecock team to show respect for the kind of player and person Lattimore is. Football is a tough game and the SEC is a tough, physical conference. I imagine that the punishment is hard to withstand week end and week out over the course of a full season. Regardless of one's distaste for another school, I don't think anyone likes to see a kid get seriously injured. Ever. Well done Tennessee.
