Tennessee fans getting crushed after cheering during Matt Corral's injury
Tennessee fans showed up in force for a big game against Ole Miss on Saturday night.
The Neyland Stadium crowd was electric, but there was a moment in the fourth quarter that earned Vol fans the ire of Twitter users everywhere.
On a running play in the fourth quarter, star Ole Miss QB Matt Corral was tackled from behind and suffered a knee injury. That, as you can hear in the video below, prompted Vol fans to cheer:

Booing or cheering an opposing player’s injury is never a good look, so Vol fans heard it from folks on Twitter.

Always knew Tennessee fans had no class, but hearing the number of times they’ve cheered for Ole Miss injuries is just disgusting.
