Tennessee, Alabama fans exchange jabs before Saturday's game in Tuscaloosa

Wednesday October 23rd, 2013

Tennessee and Alabama will meet for the 96th time on Saturday, and despite the rivalry's one-sided nature in recent years (the Vols haven't won since 2006), there is still plenty of bad blood on both sides of the states' border.

In one corner, there are Tennessee fans. Their target is a four-time BCS title-winning coach, and their weapon is poor grammar.


Not to be outdone, Alabama fans took to painting The Rock, a Tennessee campus landmark often painted by students. The result wasn't friendly.
