TRADITION!
TRADITION!!!

Yes, Tennessee has been fiddlin' on the roof all season. Yes, a time or two or three, they succumbed to gravity and took a bumpy ride down the shingles, over the brink, and onto the unforgiving ground below. Each time, however, they shook off the dust and re-ascended the ladder. Today, they stand again at the apex, stance wide, fiddle nestled firmly between chin and shoulder. The Georgia Bulldogs? Spectators. Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators? Resting comfortably. Steve Spurrier? Golfing, probably.

No, the only remaining threat approaches from the other side of the gable. Okay, so the numbers are frightening, but the LSU Tigers have been flirting with disaster all season (and losing a time or two) as well. And just how sure is their footing on this day? Quarterback Matt Flynn? Questionable. All-American Glenn Dorsey? Hobbled. The coaches? Done (?) and gone. The team psyche? Bruised.

One more duel, guys. Bow strikes string at 4:00.

Like this, but with fiddles footballs:

Go Vols!
