My granddaughter and I visited UT in August 2015 to tour the campus. After hearing about UT for many years, I was glad to finally get to see Knoxville and the surrounding area.

Granted, my alma mater has had its share of sports disasters. But just like the ancestry of all East Tennesseans, (not to be confused with Middle or West Tennesseans), we never give up, we never give in, and we will pack that stadium with 150,000 screaming, cheering, Scots-Irish-Welsh-Melungeon-Hebrew-African-Moorish fun-loving football freaks every game, whether it's 100 degrees or 10 degrees,...

This "dry" event was packed with a sea of orange-attired fans including students, alumni, and families made up of new borns to octogenarians - clearly the fan base runs wide... More
