    They are actually trying to get the fan base to checkered Neyland Saturday! Hahahaha this is going to be a fail of epic proportions. This University is sooo out of touch it hurts.

    What an environment it's going to be with our mildly checkered crowd and our Egyptian belly dancer 3rd down song!!

    I am not a fan of Butch in the slightest, but I don't understand those that have a problem with it.

    This is one of the few things we actually do right.

    Expecting the fan base to give a shit is a problem

    They’re just trying to do something. I don’t have a problem with it.

    Just not the best timing in the world to be honest. It's cool to see, but just not good timing.

    I predict that this will be the worst-looking checkerboard of all time, by halftime.

    This is probably the biggest home game left on the schedule.

    Not surprised they are marketing checker neyland for this one.

    It should come as no surprise considering this is the 4th year in a row we've done this.

    Marketing just doing their job.

    It's just going to look really, really bad IMO. Esecially if things go as expected and it looks like Bama 08 near the end of the game.

    I can understand that point of view, but at the same time I don't blame them for doing it for this game either.

    It's being completely out of touch with reality.

    I can't fault the effort, but damn, be aware of how pissed the fanbase is

    It's the only game worth doing it, and perhaps the only one where an opportunity exists to do it, from a participation standpoint. So, I get it, and don't blame them.

    But I think that malaise and apathy are so deeply ingrained at this point that it might look ok at the beginning, but if people start filing out en masse, it's going to look like actual shit, and that there are legitimate concerns that the optics of that will look and be even worse, if things go south. The potential for risk isn't worth the reward. I wish they would have just shelved the idea for this season, but maybe it works out.

    Agree. Pretty at kick off. Total mess like the state of the game and team by 2nd half.

    I don't think it will be spectacular at kick off...people are overestimating the give a shit meter.

    The Atlanta area alumni cancelled a bus trip here for the game due to lack of interest. That's bad
