Josh Heupel, more like “Josh Hypel,” right?

Bad puns aside, Tennessee’s head coach is pumped up prior to the Vols’ SEC opener against Florida. The Vols and Gators face off in a place Tennessee has struggled to win at recently, but if the Vols are anything like their head coach, they’ll be ready.

He was seen telling fans “Let’s f—ing go!” while entering the stadium:

Tennessee needs a little more energy this time around, and it’s hard to believe they won’t deliver in that aspect. Be it facing an overmatched opponent or something else, the Vols just looked tired against Austin Peay during last week’s home opening 30-13 win over the Governors.

Every week is the most important week, but you get the feeling the Vols’ coaching staff needs to see a big game against the Gators Saturday. Milton was not horrible last week against the Govs, but he was far from what Tennessee needs heading into the bulk of their schedule.

Let’s see if Heupel, Milton and the Vols can take care of business against the Gators in Gainesville. The game is set to kick at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
