The season may be over, but there is always plenty to talk about on Rocky Top. And as the news broke that Bob Shoop was leaving Penn State to become Tennessee’s new defensive coordinator, Vols Twitter sounded off big time (and Penn State fans weren’t exactly silent about it either…). From fans to players to other influential names in sports media, it was quite the discussion. Let’s take a look at some of the best #Vol tweets, Shoop style!
I hope this PSU fan didn’t eat anything spicy beforehand.
If we lose Shoop to Tennessee I'll seriously throw up

#BobShoop is a sellout. Glad your gone. Have fun screwing over UT with job searches after 2016. You'll look like a douche as a creamsicle

I think there were a lot of Vol fans like this yesterday.

On a serious note, how rare is it to get a coach to do this? Especially a highly sought-after one?
Bob Shoop wanted to wear the orange so bad that he payed his own buyout at Penn State. #VolNation

Not everyone was confident in the hire.

Landing him will be one of Shoop’s top priorities for the next few weeks.
Do you think Bob Shoop will be in Kongbo's living room the day after the dead period ends or nah?

Even current safety Todd Kelly Jr. joined in on the Shoop puns.

Incoming defensive back recruit Marquill Osborne approves.

One of Tennessee’s biggest recruiting targets knows Coach Shoop is for real.
Coach Shoop is legit.

Fox Sports personality Stewart Mandel thinks highly of the hire.
Tennessee just landed one of the absolute best DCs in the business, Penn State's Bob Shoop. And he walks into a lot of talent.

Bruce Feldman knows how big this is for Tennessee.
