Tennessee football crowd didn’t hide their NSFW feelings toward Florida


Tennessee football fans have suffered through recent history against rival Florida so the Vols faithful let out an NSFW chant while beating the Gators. 

Prior to Saturday in Neyland Stadium, Tennessee football has had a truly awful time in their annual meeting with the rival Florida Gators. The Vols had lost 16 of their last 17 meetings with the SEC East foe coming into the game and were trying to shed that unkind history in front of 100,000+ orange-and-white-clad fans.

They were able to do that. Though Florida tried to give every Vols fan a panic attack late with a touchdown and recovered onside kick, Tennessee was able to come away with a 38-33 victory that wasn’t all that close for much of the game before the late-game madness. And as they are wont to do, the crowd in Knoxville was pounding their collective chest.

Of course, considering we’re talking about a passionate crowd that hates the Gators, just saw the team win for only the second time in the last 18 years, and has likely been indulging in some tailgating and in-game adult beverage festivities, the Vols fans in attendance on Saturday let their feelings be known in a loud, loud and NSFW manner with a simple chant: ‘F**k you Florida!”

Tennessee football crowd breaks into NSFW anti-Florida chant during huge win

While Florida fans are probably in their feelings about this, the fact of the matter is that this is all relatively harmless. Sure, the language being used isn’t safe for work, but when you’re talking about a group largely comprised of college kids, this isn’t crossing any serious line when it comes to the Volunteers.

More importantly, though, we’re likely going to see Tennessee football and the fans start puffing out their chests even more moving forward. The win over the Gators now has them ranked inside the Top 10 in the latest AP Top 25 and they are looking like a team that could, at the very least, challenge the likes of Georgia and Alabama this season.

But for now, they can bask in the glory of getting past Florida. And if I had to guess, their sentiments from this chant haven’t changed a few days after the fact.
