ENOUGH of the OCS bullsheet. It is not needed nor is it economically feasible. Just because someone else has a shiny new trinket does not mean you have to get one also.

Problem is, most people past the immediate surrounding counties identify more with UT-K than UofM. And you have all the Memphis-centric folks on here and other media that constantly harp on the U's relation to the city.

I'm one of the ones who went because it was the closest public university with an engineering department and I got a better scholarship than UT-K was offering. That was the days of the 55mph speed limit, so Cookeville was an extra hour or hour-1/2 away, plus I wanted to go to a school with D-1 athletics. And it fit my overall scheme of migrating South and West. (watched too many John Wayne movies I guess)

Lots of things change when you get outside the Memphis surrounding counties. Hillbilly quotient goes way up.

Reason goes way down.

You know.... we in the "surrounding counties" can do without your condescension. I live in a "surrounding county", and I would take any of these fine folks (weather or not they fly a UT flag) over your judgmental myopia. And I effing HATE ut.

You know snowflake, many others cracked even more insulting light jokes at UTs expense, even in this thread

Yet you panty wad up over mine

YOU have issues

Talk it over with someone at the Wal Mart

Uh oh, trigger

Perhaps in the future when hillbillies racially disparage Memphis and **** all over our city, you can go after them for their condescension

I mean, there are good, hard-working folks in all 95 counties.

But there are plenty of counties to the east of Shelby that skew trashy.

And there are 94 counties that say Shelby skews trashy/stupid/entitled/low class/obnoxious/whatever.

And yes, of course, there is the racial component of the derogatory opinion, no need to try to sugarcoat it, but the opinion is also largely true, outside of that facet. Posts in this thread illustrate that. The obnoxiousness of Memphians astonished me when I got to town. I remember thinking, and saying, you arrogant SOB's have absolutely nothing to be so full of yourselves about compared to the rest of the state (as someone from eastern West Tennessee whose experience outside of that was mainly Middle Tennessee).

UTK will not be playing a game in Memphis unless it is against Memphis. The powers that be will not allow it to be so. Times have changed, as they tend to do. For those unable to comprehend this, bless their hearts. Memphis is more than on the up and up. That is all.

Vols have a strategy of playing neutral site games in NFL stadiums. Plus the Bristol event thing. I don't see them coming to the Liberty Bowl outside of the bowl game. If they do though, the City should rake in some cash.

Don't fool yourself. If UT is willing to pay rent to use LBMS for a Saturday then the city will take their money. It has happened many times before and it can certainly happen again. That being said, I don't see it happening again anytime soon.

Exactly. Not sure why people are saying the city wouldn't do us wrong. Yes, the city will not hesitate.

People that think the city of Memphis is the University of Menphis are as dumb as Wal mart Vol fans. The city will frick the univ faster than you can yell rocky top or go old miss.

Been happening forever. Idiot " vol football/tiger basketball fans are a cancer. We just now have some alums that have started fighting it but we aren't finished.

The city will frick us in the blink of an eye. No one should kid themselves.

As you further demonstrate your myopia. Mem tigers disparaged UT fans. You disparage people simply based on where they live.

It was a similar veined joke

What is wrong without?

Myopia is the wrong word. You are trying to infer I cannot see a bigger picture. I lived and breathed it, and while we all know there are some decent people throughout the state, and even in rural Mississippi, there are indeed larger numbers of rubes

People thoroughly this thread and throughout this website mock and cajole rural Tennesseans and utk fans all the time

Weirdly, you seized on my generic similar comment to make a personal comment. On a Memphis board

Please take your obviously superior rural sensitivities and go afternoon your neighbors when they mock and disparage Memphis, which they do, a lot.

This is a MEMPHIS board

Why do people feel this need to turn Memphis centric typical internet tweaks into lessons about how things work both ways

This is about MEMPHIS

We can post that Alabama football sucks if we want
We can mock utk if we want, we do not have to give equal time

Please, you holier than thou folks that have defensively popped up, read a utk or Mississippi board. Good lord

Or at least save your vitriol for cases where something is personal, racist, sexist or the like

Instead of betting bent over Memphis fans on the internet generically poking utk or the rest of the state as hillbillies

Maybe if mocking people wasn't about the only thing you do, people would not be so quick to call you out.

Remember when you used to go through game threads quoting and mocking anyone who made a negative comment during the heat of the moment during live games? Who does that? No one, not on any board anywhere for any team. Only you.

I'll just say this. Regardless of who these people in my rural community root for, I find them, on average, more sane than the average Memphian. Please don't get it twisted. I'm not saying I don't find sanity within the confines of the 240 loop. It's just more rare.
