BlueTickBengalTiger barely remembers the Doug Dickey years and came of age in Knoxville during the era of Bill Battle??? Then attended Vandy for 2 years yet never attended a game. Finally got hooked into SEC football while selling advertising for a Vol Network affiliate and especially in 1985 while listening to John Ward during The Year of the Volunteers... when a Heisman hopeful went down with a knee injury and a bunch of no name players stepped up to win the SEC Championship and knock off National Championship bound Miami in the Sugar bowl... Went on to sell advertising for LSU network affilate in 1986 when again a group of no name players took the Bengal Tigers past the Aggies, Bama, Gators, and the Fighting Irish to the SEC Championship and the Sugar Bowl. His favorite SEC coach is The Chief John Chavis.
