Fall is my favorite time of the year for several reasons. The weather is great, the leaves start turning brilliant colors, and, in the words of the legendary “Voice of the Vols”, John Ward, “It’s Football Time in Tennessee”!!!!
Yes, UT football is just 3 weeks away. To be exact, according to the countdown to kickoff clock on utsports.com, we are 21 days, 6 hours, 40 minutes away from the season opener at UCLA. I can’t wait! There is nothing quite like a beautiful fall afternoon surrounded by about 107,000 orange-clad UT fans. I hope to make it over to Knoxville for a few games this year. I wasn’t able to attend any last year, so I need to make up. The Neyland Stadium experience is something to behold, whether you are a UT fan or not. The atmosphere inside that arena on game day is simply electric. I can’t think of a better place to watch a football game.
So, now we are 21 days, 6 hours, 33 minutes from kickoff. I’ll keep watching the clock waiting to here those words once again. It’s football time in Tennessee!
