Maybe it’s not all bad for Tennessee football to lose to Georgia State. Here are five funny positive spins from the GSU Panthers upsetting the Volunteers.
The sun came up this morning. Tennessee football still exists as a program. Other teams have lost games as well. Hey, we have to do something to make Vols fans happy after one of their worst losses in years, right?
It doesn’t get much worse than losing to the Georgia State Panthers 38-30. Well, it actually does. The Vols weren’t even that close throughout the game, as they were down 38-23 up until two seconds were left on the clock.
They could not stop Dan Ellington and that offense. Shawn Elliott was light years ahead of Jeremy Pruitt and Derrick Ansley, as the back seven was out of position all game. Simply put, there is no way to overstate how bad it was for Tennessee football.
But we can make it positive. Hey, anything can turn into a benefit if you take it the right way. And maybe Vol fans are just looking at this loss all wrong. The only way to handle such a disaster is to see the good in it.
In this post, we’re going to find that good and take a look at the positive spins UT fans can put on this game. Something has to come out of it, right? Losses in the past have worked out in fans’ favor long-term. You just never know.
We already know the panic. The Vols will never be good again, they are cursed as a program, and Jeremy Pruitt is all of a sudden the worst coach in history. Oh, and then we can make some excuses. They just need a change at quarterback, and the heat on Saturday benefits Georgia State since they’re three hours south.
However, we’re going to accept the loss on behalf of Vol Nation and see the good things they can take from it. Let’s be clear that this is obviously a humorous take. But let’s do it anyway. Here are five positive spins from Tennessee football’s 38-30 loss to the Georgia State Panthers.
