[BLEEP] YOU, MASCOT!: Smokey IX


Smokey IX here is a bluetick coonhound. I'd be blue too if I had to go around in public dressed like this. A dog wearing a tablecloth? Seriously? Is that the best Tennessee can do? Look, at least Georgia went out and got UGA his own little football jersey. What's the deal here? Is Tennessee trying to convince Smokey here that he's a racehorse or something? Yeah, he'll do well against Rachel Alexandra I'll bet.
You have to feel bad about Smokey IX. His predecessor, Smokey VIII, got to hang out with Peyton Manning and saw the Vols win a "National Championship". Smokey IX? He gets to hang out with Jonathan Crompton and gets to watch the fallout of Vols players getting arrested. . I'd be blue about that too.

(apologies as usual to Matthew Gasteier)
