We’ll update this post as memes begin to appear for today’s game!

The University of Tennessee Volunteer fans are rallying around the battle cry “WGWTFA” after the phrase was made legendary by defensive end, Darrell Taylor.

Taylor shouted the “Not Suitable For Work” phrase as he took the field to warm up for a game earlier this season against Virginia Tech at “The Battle of Bristol”.

It was captured on video by Busted Coverage which went viral throughout social media shortly thereafter.

The Tennessee faithful have embraced the hashtag #WGWTFA on social media and it didn’t take long to find its way onto various products design to capitalize on its popularity.

Whether #WGWTFA ever replaces “Go Vols!” as the pseudo-official battle cry of the Vol nation remains to be seen. The Vols have already lost to Texas A&M and a loss to the Crimson Tide would certainly diminish the somewhat arrogant nature of the phrase.

Given that it’s “The Third Saturday in October”, Bama fans are hoping to give the hastag #WGWTFA new meanings. Here are a few:

Bama Beats Tennessee - Again!
"Who Gets Worried Tennessee Fans Afraid?"
"We Grow Weird Tennessee Facial Hair" "The Closest Darrell Taylor Will Ever Be To Number One"

Lane Kiffin (l) and Daniel Tosh (r)

By FinebaumFan.

It is said that everyone has a doppelganger – someone who looks exactly the same as another person.

In the case of University of Alabama offensive coordinator, Lane Kiffin,  Daniel Tosh fits the bill.

Tosh is a comedian, actor, and writer who hosts the Comedy Central television show – “Tosh.0.

This week, Tosh took advantage of his striking resemblance to Kiffin to reveal his impression of a Lane Kiffin “call in” television show.

Along with his stunning “wife”, played by UFC ring girl Chrissy Blair, “Kiffin” fielded calls from fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Auburn Tigers, the USC Trojans, and the Tennessee Volunteers.

Watch as “Lane” takes calls from these unhappy fans on “Kiffin’s Krimson Korner”.

"Rocky Top Y'all"

Tennessee’s Uniforms For Saturday’s Game

Birmingham radio legend, Courtney Haden, produced this parody song for The Paul Finebaum Show several years ago.

In his production, Haden impersonated Alistair Cooke, the host of the Public Broadcasting Service’s Masterpiece Theater.

Haden narrates his version of a “Masterpiece Classic”, “The Meaning Of Rocky Top” to a backdrop of Lynn Anderson’s hit “Rocky Top” – The University of Tennessee’s adopted fight song.

“Rocky Top” was written by married songwriting duo Boudleaux Bryant (1920–1987) and Felice Bryant (1925–2003) in 1967.

I wonder if they have any relatives in Morro Bottom, Arkansas?

From Wikipedia.
With its good-natured regional references to a carefree lifestyle, the singing of “Rocky Top” by Tennessee college students and alumni at sports venues such as Neyland Stadium is well established. House of Bryant has granted the University of Tennessee a perpetual license to play the song as much and as often as success on the field dictates. Longtime director W. J. Julian created a marching band arrangement that was first played at Tennessee’s October 21, 1972, game against the University of Alabama.

The Girls of Rocky Top
Lyrics to “Rocky Top”
Wish that I was on ole Rocky Top,
Down in the Tennessee hills.
Ain’t no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top,
Ain’t no telephone bills.
Corn won’t grow at all on Rocky Top,
Dirt’s too rocky by far.
That’s why all the folks on Rocky Top
Get their corn from a jar.
Once there was a girl on Rocky Top,
Half bear the other half cat.
Wild as a mink, sweet as soda pop,
I still dream about that.
Rocky Top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole Rocky Top,
Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee.
Rocky Top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole Rocky Top,
Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee.
Now I’ve had years of cramped up city life,
Trapped like a duck in a pen.
Now all I know is it’s a pity life
Can’t be simple again.
Once two strangers climbed on Rocky Top,
Lookin’ for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain’t come back from Rocky Top,
Guess they never will.
Rocky Top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole Rocky Top,
Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee.
 Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee.
Yeah Rocky Top Tennessee eee eee eee.
