LOOK: Former Tennessee QB Casey Clausen causes stir after appearing to wear Alabama hat
If there’s one thing Tennessee fans hate, it’s the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Therefore, when former Vol QB Casey Clausen took a photo with fellow VFL Tee Martin on Friday, many fans were surprised to see an “A” on his hat.
As you can see in the picture below, it looked a lot like the Crimson Tide logo, and that caused a bit of a stir:
Please tell me that’s a Braves hat and not a damn Bama hat. Come on Casey! pic.twitter.com/7aD6tcb3tq

However, it was a false alarm, as the hat was simply the logo of the high school Clausen attended (and currently coaches) — Bishop Alemany High School in California:
On the left is the logo of the school Casey Clausen coaches at & played for, on the right is a guy from undefeated #VolTwitter who can’t do a simple google search. Chalk this up as loss number 88567447935534 @jontweet1978 pic.twitter.com/k4N87NrGP3

As a former Volunteer, Clausen likely realizes the resemblance to the Alabama logo, and perhaps he’s already lobbied the school to change it.
For now, though, he’ll have to be careful wearing that hat around people who are unfamiliar with his current coaching affiliation.
