Scotty Hopson is begging for support against “that blue team”

The wheels are falling off the house quickly in Knoxville as Bruce Pearl is sweating out the NCAA and an SEC schedule that has seen the Vols drop 5 of their last 7 games.  It’s reached a point of desperation for a team whose future once looked bright and it’s the type of fleeting feeling that can’t be cured by a simple sleepover with the portly coach.  It needs more.  Apparently, it needs a begging email from Kentucky native and current Volunteer Scotty Hopson.  University of Tennessee students received the email below last week from #32, asking them if they could find time in their schedule to show up and cheer for the trainwreck in orange tonight and Sunday. 

Please?

Enjoy.

What’s up UT students? It’s Great to be a Tennessee Vol!

We need to chat about what we got coming up.

First of all, WE NEED YOU! The SEC East is tough this season and we’re fighting to rep the Big Orange right.

We only have two more games at Thompson-Boling Arena this season, so we really need your support when we take on Mississippi State on Saturday, Feb. 26, and on Sunday, March 6 when that blue team comes to Rocky Top. Both games are on national TV and we want everyone to see why we have the best fans in the country right here at Tennessee.

They’re going to know it, too. Because when Thompson-Boling is rocking, there is no tougher place to play in the nation. That’s why we need you to make sure that we pack the house for the Bulldogs and Wildcats. We feed off your energy and you help us more than you’ll ever know.

My teammates and I want to ask you to please come out and help us get a ‘W’ over Mississippi State and Kentucky. We need you! Come early, be loud and wear Orange.

Let’s do this,
Hop
(Scotty Hopson)

    That’s hilarious. UK players don’t have to “BEG” fans to come out and support the team because the BIG BLUE NATION is 24-7 from east to west coast and even in China!!! GO BLUE

    So the “best fans in the country” require begging to come and support their team. That’s funny right there, I don’t care who you are.

    Shouldn’t be a problem for the orange to fill that arena on a weekend…don’t those inbred a-holes get outta jail on work release for the weekends?

    I laugh at how every team / fanbase, even crap schools that could give a sh*t, claims they have the “best” fans in the country. I often wonder if they really believe that garbage.

    Tennessee’s at SC tonight, they’ve already lost that game to Miss. St. But, 20,000 did show up, I wonder if they’ll come out again on Sunday.

    UK doesn’t have to beg our fans to come out to the games … but we sure as heck have to beg the lower arenites to cheer

    Is “Hate Tennessee Day” tomorrow or Saturday? If it is today, is this “Hate Tennesee Day Eve” when we hang orange jump suits over the fireplace and leave matza balls out for the chubby guy? I just need to know for sure because I really enjoy holidays.

    IF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IN TROY MCKINLEY’S DAYS, TROY WOULD HAVE SIMPLY LAUGHED IN HOPSON’S FACE AND THEN STEPPED BACK AND DRILLED A THREE RIGHT IN HIS EYE. REPEATEDLY, THE WHOLE EVENING!

    Is he writing that from the Milwaukee Bucks team bus, because he said he chose UT so Pearl could make him a “one & done.”

    Mr. McKinley will be there. And he may suit up.

    If Cats go into this game loose they may pull it off but when something is on the line this team does not do well under pressure. If we have a five or six points lead going into final five minutes we will have a shot but Vols will be ready just like Alabama, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, and Vanderbilt. Vols faithfully will be all jacked up and Brucie Bruce will let them camp out the night before in the THOMAS BOWLING ARENA. I see Kentucky getting a #3 seed in the SEC Tournament and will play in a loaded bracket filled with SEC East teams like Florida and Tennessee. If we can get a #2 seed we can easily get to SEC Championship game. I think we get to avenge a loss to Alabama on a neutral site.

    My, how Rocky Top has fallen! A player e-mailing the student body begging for attendance at a game is something you would expect at an NAIA program, not a Division I program!

    If UT had the greatest fans in the country then why is Hippity Hop begging the fans for their support? And will someone tell him that his hair style isn’t coming back.

    I could live 1,000 more years and NEVER see anything greater than the day Jodie Meeks hung 54 in that puke orange dump. Maybe when Pearl is fired, Pat Summitt will take his place.

    #29 the same deal for you, I will put up my St. Patricks day Chuck Taylors (worn by yours truly to the SEC tourney Chuck Hays Senior season). You should be ashamed of your name talking like that. The Cats are coming home with a win on Sunday and that is that. Wildcat players, don’t listen to the haters. You CATS are on the right road now.

    10) both have the same color. I mean work release and the bb team. How the hell can to tell the difference between the two?
    In all fairness Hopson wasn’t even recruited by Clyde. But he still could’ve went somewhere else. So forget that little pencil eraser headed varmint

    Every program on the planet thinks their gym is the toughest place to play. I admire the audacity, but we need to drop a Pearl necklace on them as a pre-tournament gift.

    I’ll never forgive Billie G for pulling Jodie after scoring his 54 when he was still so hot he cudda scored a dozen more and had his jersey retired in Boling too.

    Did the piece above really start with the sentence, “The wheels are falling off the house”???????? I guess most “houses” in Kentucky come on wheels but I’m not sure that is a real strong analogy. At least not to readers who reside in states where trailor parks are in the minority. Its fitting for this site though.

    Scotty Hopson could quite possibly be the most overrated player to ever come out of Kentucky. Look what 3 star Lofton did at Thug U and look what Hopson has done!! Hopson is terrible.

    Scotty Hopson is the reason that the fans don’t come to the games and then he ask them to come out. He needs to get a life. I’m just glad he didn’t go to KY and I sure hope he doesn’t go back to Hopkinsville.

    Scotty didn’t write this. His grammar is nowhere near this good. I would know, I’m the one who writes his papers for him so he can play basketball.
