Peyton Manning jokingly blames Ryan Leaf for shocking Tennessee loss

Peyton Manning

Ryan Leaf’s debut as an ESPN commentator saw him call Tennessee’s shock 38-30 loss to Georgia State, and the man he was drafted behind in 1998 isn’t all that happy about it.

During the waning minutes of the Volunteers’ home loss to a team that went 2-10 in 2018, Leaf revealed on the air that Peyton Manning didn’t want him calling any more Tennessee games.

By any measure, Tennessee’s loss was a disaster. They were thoroughly outplayed by Georgia State, with the Panthers tallying 213 yards rushing and picking up three more first downs.

Manning, a former Volunteer, will not be happy to see the Volunteers lose what was supposed to be a guarantee game at home. One has to wonder if this changes his opinion of the school’s coach.
