Jon Gruden had some fun earlier this week on his appearance on Mike & Mike on ESPN – trolling host Mike Greenberg, a Northwestern grad, by having Rocky Top played on the show
“This is the greatest song – goosebumps,” Gruden, who started his career as a GA at UT, said. “I love the song and I’m picking it because, Tennessee, that’s where my career started, that’s where I met my wife, my son goes there – we’re coming after you Greeny – we’re coming after you in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1 in Tampa and on live radio I’m going to bet you dinner at the Outback Steakhouse that Tennessee takes down Northwestern, led by Butch Jones and the orange and white.”
Gruden went on to bet Greenberg a dinner at Outback Steakhouse that the Vols will beat Northwestern in the Outback Bowl. He even invited Greeberg down to his home, and told him he could stand on the Northwestern sideline, but clearly said:
“I’ll be on the Volunteers’ sideline.”
Here’s the full clip (starts around the 9:30 mark).
