Bless their big orange hearts. Tennessee Vols are begging their students to show up for the game Saturday against the Gamecocks, per a Bama On Line blog post.

Looks like Tennessee fans have thrown in the towel. For the first time the student ticket office has increased the number of tix allowed for guests due to the "modest demand for seats".

Remember when the third Saturday in October meant a good football game? Wonder how many fans Tennessee will bring to the Bama game on 10/21? It will be televised at 230 on CBS.
