Okay, I've been to 20+ Vanderbilt athletic events. I've seen Vanderbilt play Alabama, Ole' Miss, Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, and Kentucky (twice) in football. Along with numerous non-SEC opponents. I've seen Vanderbilt play South Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida in basketball (Tennessee & Florida this past season). In baseball I've seen Vanderbilt play Tennessee and Kansas, and two other teams I can't seem to remember (I was in the 5th grade when I saw my first two VandyBoys game).
Now what I'm trying to get to, Georgia, and South Carolina fans might be some of the rudest fan bases I've ever been around, I'm sure some of you are asking, "what about Florida?" Florida didn't bother me, all they do is that stupid gator-chomp. I haven't really expirenced the obnoxiouness Tennessee brings to a football game, they were very, very, very quite in the basketball and baseball games. Now, I had season football tickets in 2007, and we have season tickets to this season, I haven't missed a game yet, and don't plan on missing the next one.
I'm getting there... Be patient...
My father has been a Vandy fan since '65 and has been to more Vandy games than he can count, he was at the 1982 UT vs. Vandy football game, when Whitt Taylor made that heroic TD. Before this season ever started my father warned me on how incredibly rude and brash Tennessee fans are. I HATE UT and my father told me a story about how he was at a UT vs. Vanderbilt game, and there was Tennessee fans behind him, they kept talking trash and bothering him, trying to get him to say something, he didn't. And he said after five minutes they said to each other "Lets go find some other Vandy fans, this one won't say anything."
He told me before this season, that Tennessee fans are the rudest people you'll ever meet, and when they play Vandy, they take it to another level. He knows how much I hate UT, and he knows if someone says something I might just say something back. His exact words were "They are the most obnoxious people on Earth, they say some of the worst things you've ever heard, and they WILL piss you off. I'm just warning you."
Now are I know they're really bad, but are they REALLY as bad as my father proclaims them to be, I'm not calling my father a liar, but I just want to more input.
Please and thank you... ANCHOR DOWN.
