Video: Butch Jones freaks out over hearing "Sweet Home Alabama" during spring practice.

Tennessee has released a video allegedly recording an incident where Volunteers head coach Butch Jones became more than a little irate over hearing "Sweet Home Alabama" being heard during a spring practice session. The idea being that Jones is upset that a song with the word "Alabama" in its title shouldn't be being played on "Rocky Top."

The video has an "The Office" feel to it, so take that as you will.


I'm not saying the whole thing was staged, but I wouldn't bet against it, either.

For the record, "Sweet Home Alabama" is played during Crimson Tide home games at Bryant-Denny Stadium, so the connection to the Vols' cross-division rival is there.
