After the Tennessee Volunteers fell to the Alabama Crimson Tide 19-14 on Saturday, Twitter served as a platform for former Vols (and a few others) to give their two-cents on the game. Here are some of the things they had to say.
All of Vol Nation was hype for this game, including VFL Cordarrelle Patterson.
Let's gooooo Vols!!!@Vol_Football

Maurice Couch didn’t hesitate to predict the Vols winning out the rest of the season.
This bama loss, should be our last for the remainder of the year. We should win out!!

Do you think former Vols QB Erik Ainge was excited to see the Volunteers hold their own against the Tide?
That moment when Bama realizes we have real players again…

Media personality Colin Cowherd points out a fact that Tennessee fans have long been aware of.
Not sure any fan base, in any sport, in any country, suffers more close losses than Tennessee fans.

Current New York Giants defensive lineman and VFL Robert Ayers shows his support no matter what.

Former Vols receiver Jayson Swain reminds a fan who said “a good coach would never let Medley back on the field” about James Wilhoit versus Florida in 2004, then gives some endearing words to the Tide.
I know a hall of famer who allowed kicker kick again and win the game for his team. U might heard of him…. https://t.co/mzqcPxBeBi

Of course former Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron had to sound off after the game…But so did VFL Peerless Price.
Oh I almost forgot man does it just feel great or what to beat the ORANGE team for 9 straight?? Wonder if we're still the RED team? #doubtit

People seem to forget football is cyclical. My Vols are headed in the right direction. We will beat the RED TEAM 9 straight once again.#VFL
