Tennessee beat NC State this year and Cincinnati last year with winning records and if not for bad officiating would have wins over LSU and UNC as well.

You should maybe worry about your pitiful Mildcats and their 1-27 record against the Vols in the last 28 years, or their inability to either stop Vandy from scoring at will, or to score a single point against them.

Not worried at all. Not leaving Alabama. Nothing but media junk. He's said over and over he will retire at Alabama. Everyone hopes he leaves that play against him, but not happening, Tater boy.

Yes but we know Saban is a liar because he said he wasn't taking the bama job, remember?
