My business writing class has six UT football players in it, including quarterback Nathan Peterman if there are any Vol fans in here. The professor is a huge football fan and loves talking to the players. Just a few minutes ago he asked them which pro football team they'd like to play for if they had the choice. Without hesitation, all six of them said Carolina. I immediately quipped up and asked them why. They said that Ron is a players' coach and he is well regarded by college players across the nation; that the team has great facilities; Charlotte is a nice city; and the organization is very player-friendly. 

 

Not making this up. Guess we have that going for us

That's actually what I said. "You know Hurney isn't here dishing out half our cap space to one player anymore right?"

I'm sorry, but as a mother myself, I can unequivocally say that statement sucks.

 

Not a good snarky comment.

We also have the best uniforms in the league. I think within a decade we are going to become a very very popular team. Especially if Cam continues to mature and progress. Awesome color scheme, great weather, nice facilities, a quaint yet entertaining location simultaneously. A mascot such as a Panther, represents everything a football player should be. Powerful and fast, deceptive and cunning, and relentless at the same time.

Tennessee gets a lot of NC and Charlotte area HS players. Coradelle Patterson is from Rock Hill and I recall him saying last year he was a Panthers fan growing up and he would love to play for us.

 

Look at their roster. All 3 QBs are from NC or the Charlotte area. They also snagged one of the top players in the state last season in Marquez North (Mallard Creek) who was a hard UNC target. They also got Maryland transfer and former Ardrey Kell RB Justus Pickett (who was a student of my Mom there too). 

 

Georgia, Tenn, and the Gators seem to have their hands deep into the NC HS football recruiting scene and if there's a top prospect here, one of these three schools will usually land him. 

 

I am a documented UNC and ECU fan - but when it comes to the SEC I will always pull for the Vols. My aunt has season tickets. I usually will pull for UGA vs most SEC teams based on the fact that they get a lot of the NC kids. Todd Gurley, who IMHO is the best RB in college FB, along with Keith Marshall are both from the triangle. 

 

Oh, and F*ck Flordia.

UT = University of Tennessee (hence 'Vols')
