As Kentucky fans, we don’t have much room to make fun of corny songs made by overzealous old men commemorating the Cats in odd ways. The video below, however, just blasted open some space for us to do just that. Youtube user, allVOLyall, created a song honoring Tennessee’s new head coach, Butch Jones. If you can handle this man’s horrible, droning voice for about four minutes, you will be witness to one Volunteer fans wild delusions of grandeur.
This egregious overestimation of Butch Jones’ potential (nobody is touching Saban right now, especially not Butch Jones),while obviously satirical, is not very far off base from the feelings that most UT fans seem to be experiencing. While Kentucky fans are cautiously optimistic about the future thanks to a few recruiting coups by a new coach (obviously Kentucky has a much greater climb than Tennessee–but the recruiting successes thus far have been comparable), Tennessee fans have thrown caution to the wind, convinced that this will be the last year they suffer through mediocrity. By the time the 2014 season rolls around, the Vols will be ready to challenge for a national title–#ButchPlease.
But seriously–this video is pretty disturbing.
