GVX TV | Double Coverage Tennessee vs Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt won’t address playing in another bowl game yet. Tennessee can’t address playing in another bowl game yet.

Neither of those things will prevent Steve Ehrhart and his Liberty Bowl staff from having their eyes glued on Saturday night’s matchup in Knoxville.

“It’s an amazing situation because two years ago these two coaches were in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl when Butch Jones was at Cincinnati and James Franklin was in his first year at Vanderbilt,” said Ehrhart, executive director of college football’s seventh-oldest bowl.

“These are two future rock stars in coaching. It’s ironic both spoke here during the course of this season and I had the honor of being able to introduce both of them.”

Epic puke! Epic puke! Vols fail, Vols fail! This team is worse than last year's. I did not think it was possible for any team to be worse than that team, but this one is. They do absolutely nothing even half way well - except fail.
