If we have any students with a sense of humor, he already has 200 For Sale signs in his front yard. In Kenny's defense, maybe he lost a bet to Dolly Parton over the 2004 game. He could've addressed that issue during the 2 songs he played with the volume THANKFULLY off on his mic.
The only bigger slap in the face would've been if Michael Stipe had been standing on the field singing Orange Crush.
Ironically many of the UT fans in attendance took his advice with 6 minutes left. "You Gotta know when to Fold 'em". They hit stadium exits running wide open.

Knoxville Police Stop Flag Waving
After the 2004 game, Jason Allen ran the UT flag around Sanford Stadium before planting it in the G at midfield. It's very common for the road team to march their flag around the other team's endzone after a road win. Apparently, the Knoxville Police force -- who is growing accustomed to dealing with home losses -- now PREVENTS visiting team cheerleaders and players from flying the large flags after the game. The cops refused to let our cheerleaders bring the flags out.
If that weren't ridiculous enough, the Knoxville Police Department then went to the Redcoat Band Director and refused to let the band play more than 2 songs after the game. So the band sang "Glory, Glory" and "What's that Coming Down the Tracks." Then the Cops forced them to stop singing. The cops were literally standing on the band director's platform next to the drum major's platform. I almost expected them to start shooting if anyone started humming.
This was all within the first 10 minutes after the game. Normally, you get a good half hour of post-game gloating before the cops turn off the lights or throw you out. Sore damn losers.
Speaking Of Leaving Early:
Even the UT player parents starting bolting when Fulmer didn't go for it on 4th and 10 with 6:30 left in the game down by 13 points. When the players' families don't stick around, you know it's bad.
