Video: Tennessee drops new hype video ahead of Florida game
Not that Big Orange Country needed any help getting excited for Saturday’s SEC East showdown between Tennessee and Florida, but the Volunteers’ official Twitter account shared a new hype video Tuesday morning. The tweet accompanying the video reads “We’ll see you in Neyland Saturday Be #EL17E.”
Some potential motivation for Vols fans to bring their A-game to Neyland Stadium will be to show Florida QB Austin Appleby, a Purdue graduate transfer, what makes an SEC environment different from the Big Ten.
“We’re definitely excited for the opportunity to go to a place like that, with what’s at stake,” Appleby said Monday. “I mean, it’s just another game, you know. I’ve been to Nebraska, I’ve been to Ohio State, I’ve been to Michigan State, I’ve been to Penn State … the stadium’s are the same.
“You go in there with an ‘us against the world’ mentality and you trust your teammates. You communicate and you go execute the game plan. At the end of the day, it’s all noise. All the pregame stuff, it’s where you come like, ‘Oh, wow, this is legit.’ But once the game starts – I think if you ask a lot of players they’ll say the same thing – it all kind of quiets and you lock into your zone.”
