Tennessee Football eats ass.
I’ve waited over a decade for a reason to write that exact sentence.
Now I can because the Vols’ athletic director and former head football coach, Phillip Fulmer, stood before a crowd at a National Signing Day event last night and said, “The Vols are back. And before long, we’ll be taking a bite out of everybody we play’s ass.”
That is a direct quote, believe it or not, heard below in this clip from WATE 6 out of Knoxville:

It is an odd rallying cry from the man who guided the Tennessee program to its only national championship back in 1998. If it were me, someone who has never coached football or led an athletic department, I would’ve said kick ass, maybe even beat ass.
To each their own though, I guess. Good luck with the ass biting and being back. Tennessee is “back” around this time of year, every year.
And cover your asses, SEC. It’s getting NC-17 out there.
