It might be best if the University of Tennessee-related Twitter accounts just took a few weeks off at this point.
Play Underdog For Heat-Celtics Game 6! Who ya got?
Fans want coach Butch Jones fired, but the Vols have made no moves toward making that a reality as of yet, despite an 0-5 start to SEC play.
When the university’s official account sent out a tweet asking alums if they planned to come back to Knoxville for Saturday’s homecoming game, the responses were… predictable:

It’s safe to say most Vol fans will not be returning to Knoxville for homecoming, as these responses to the above tweet strongly indicate:
I gave my tickets away already. Let me know when you all are serious about putting out a championship level product again. We deserve better

Based on these responses, Saturday’s game at Neyland Stadium may feel more like a home game for Southern Miss.
