Six UT players unanimously say they'd want to play for Carolina

Recommended Posts

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

Do they know Hurney isn't doling out contracts anymore?

 

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

And they can stay close to their mommies.

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.

Salt Lake City Panthers...no, I mean Carolina Utes.

UT = University of Tennessee (hence 'Vols')
