WATCH: Damarea Crockett says Tyler Badie has hilarious new nickname after getting pantsed by Tennessee defender
During Saturday’s 50-17 win at Tennessee, freshman RB Tyler Badie had his pants inadvertently pulled down by a Tennessee defender on a pass reception.
His teammates had a great time with him on the sideline after that play, and it appears the fun has carried over to this week.
On Monday, fellow RB Damarea Crockett said Badie has earned himself the nickname “Moon” following the hilarious play:

“He’s got a new nickname now, you know. His name is ‘Moon,'” Crockett smiles. “We’re not going to let him live that down. That’s probably going to stay with him for the rest of his life, I’m not even going to lie to you.”
The Tigers are having a lot of fun the past few weeks, riding a three-game winning streak into Friday’s game against a struggling Arkansas squad. We’ll see if Moon can keep his pants up this week.
