So far, 2010 has not been kind to Knoxville. Starting New Year’s Day with the arrests of four basketball players, the subsequent dismissal of Tyler Smith and now Lane Kiffin’s jumping of the ship, the University of Tennessee is looking for any ray of sunshine. Presumably that’s why they have started selling this beautiful commemorative T-shirt for $19.99 a pop. Now you can relive when the “Underrated #16” Vols beat the “Undefeated #1” Kansas Jayhawks all year long!
I don’t really know what to say about this. I can understand making a T-shirt for an SEC Championship, SEC Tournament title, Final Four or National Championship, but for one regular season win? I realize the circumstances of that win, but still, it just seems silly and undeserving of its own shirt. Maybe we’ll be fortunate enough to see a UT fan do a piss-and-burn on it in the future.
