Michigan and Tennessee can Identify

Just reading Maisel's peice on the wolverines makes me feel closer to them.

To quote frosh offensive lineman David Moosman, "Some people have mascots, big elaborate places. We have a great fight song, along with a great stadium."

That's the way it is for Tennessee fans. We have a fight song (Rocky Top) and a great stadium (Neyland Stadium). Those are probably two of the greatest traditions Tennessee has, and nothing is closer to the hearts of many Tennessee fans than a chorus of 104,000+ fans belting that fight song after a big play by the Vols.

I'm not trying to pick a fight here about who has the better traditions or anything of that sort, but celebrate the commonality, and know that on certain saturdays in the fall there's a fan wearing blue who is feeling a certain way that I know about in my love of the orange.

College Football is the greatest sport ever.
