Tennessee is coming off an upset win over South Carolina last weekend and its fans are getting a little cocky. One lumber store in Knoxville got so carried away that they supposedly put up this message on the marquee outside the store to warn Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide that they were next up to lose to the Vols.
Not only is this incredibly brash and stupid because there’s no sense in giving any more fuel to Bama, which is already favored by 28 points in the game, but we absolutely love the grammatical error in the marquee.
“Dear Mr Saban
I can’t tell you how frequently we see “your” substituted for what is supposed to be “you’re.” In fact, most of the time it comes from taunting fans. Maybe they’re all just too drunk to remember their contractions. I’m not sure what the excuse was for the person running the marquee at this Witt store.
