they probably say the same thing in Alabama

Yesterday, I announced at work:

"It's almost football time in Tennessee."
"Oh no, the Vols" said my colleague. But she says "Vols" all funny, with crisp British vowels, not with the loving, long vowels of a Southerner.
"Don't sound like that. This year it will be different. I won't be dragging myself in all morose on a Monday. The Vols are going to win."
"Yes, of course." smirked the colleague.


I had just been watching this via Mr Rocky Top.

Oh, they most certainly feel the same way here in BAMA. In fact, if you check out you can hear The Bear himself saying it.

P.S. So I take it you think UT will manage to beat Vandy this year?
