Default Tennessee fans

A couple of things... first, everyone who was at the game can agree that place was LOUD yesterday. seemed a lot louder than 2 years ago which was a night game and I sat essentially in the same place right behind the band.

second, these fans are great. another trip to Knoxville and another trip that not one Vol fan said a word to me after the game (except for one "ballsy" female after the game that said "haaa they suck" under her breath after the game walking by me) after the game went back downtown to eat and watch Clemson and again not one complaint... a dollar got everytime someone asked how Shaw was doing or telling me safe travels. great welcoming polite people and I will keep going back until someone changes my mind. if you've never been to a road game I highly recommend Tennessee.

oh and the best thing about them... a bunch of Gamecocks at the bar we went to last night... even had the Tennessee fans doing the chop with us.

TOTALLY agree. Ive been to Knoxville once to see the boys play, what a great time. People are awesome. I will pull for Tenn over anyone else always for that reason. And most of them feel the same way for us from what i have been around

You're absolutely right! I too was at the game yesterday, sitting in the upper deck right under the huge jumbotron. It was very loud, and no Tennessee fans said anything nasty to me following the game. They were nice, polite, and a few asked me how Shaw was doing. I remember telling one Lady was I was walking out that I knew Butch Jones would turn Tennessee around and help them win again, I just didn't want it to be against us. And she said that win meant a lot to them. But was not nasty or degrading to USC at all! Was my first SEC road game, and I'd love to head back to Rocky Top for another game with them! Great experience and great SEC atmosphere!

Knoxville has a lot of interesting things to see but the greatest attribute of Knoxville is the people of Knoxville. They make you feel welcome.

My daughter, a USC student, and her room mate we not happy with the fans and left right after the game because of this. She was disappointed that there fans cheered when both Quarles and Shaw got hurt. She said this was not drunk students, but the older part of the crowd.

Place looked 1/2 empty 10 min before kickoff. Filled in very quickly after that. Fans or no fans we left there with a L that should have been a W. Been going up there for many years, they just do not have the players they used to have. That is what really, really sucks about yesterday.

They are very passionate fans there. I'm sure if Carolina would have blown them out it might have been a different story. I'm not saying it would have but....

It's good that you had a great time non the less.

Very nice words from you guys. I have always been treated well in Columbia. It's a beautiful venue and every football fan should at least once see the Gamecocks stadium entrance. Yesterday was obviously a huge win for us, especially after that gut-wrenching loss to GA a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, good luck against the Tigers (Mizzou and Clemson). We'll do our best to get Missouri for you, and for God's sake if you somehow win the east, beat BAMA's a**. See you all in Columbia next year.

Default Re: Tennessee fans

Been to Knoxville three times, and always stayed the night before
the game in Gatlinburg. I've always worn some kind of Gamecock gear
when I go to Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area and I've NEVER had any
of the UT people say anything derogatory or hateful. In fact, there
were several trips where UT fans have actually come over, shook my
hand and started talking college football in general and how much they
respect the school and program here. All smack has been lighthearted
and in good fun. .... In the three games that I've been to Neyland Stadium
and around the UT Campus, they have been some of the best trips I've
ever taken, and the fans around us were very pleasant. Definitely the
best opposing college football fans in the SEC IMO.

This was the first time I have ever been to Knoxville. I had a blast, and I was very impressed with their fans. I had four different sets of fans come up to me after the game to see what I had heard about Connor's injury. They all seemed legitimitly concerned. I will definitly make the trip back one day, and hopefully with better results. Hey, but at least we ain't Clempson!

I just got back, and I, as usual, enjoyed the trip to UT. I've made 7 trips there, and have never had any problems other than the occasional immature college kid yell something like, "Spurrier's a cock!" at me. Considering that the game got a bit heated at times and considering how big a win this was for the UT program, the walk back to my car yesterday was uneventful. Disastrous game for us, but at least the UT fans I saw were the type of folks who can enjoy their win without making the visiting fans feel worse than they already do.

I was there and had several conversations with SC fans. I even sat at the bar with a few after the game. No hard feelings, just a good evening (especially watching Clemson lose).

The only annoying fans I saw all day were a small group of Bama fans at the bar after the game.

I would like to go to Columbia next year.

Always had a great time in Knoxville and the fans are the best. I sat in a UT section and the fans gave Shaw a standing O when they carried him off.
