Vols Fan Calls Radio Show, Says He Lost It During Kentucky Game & His Wife Left Him

Videos by OutKick

The Tennessee Vols football season has reached the point, after a 34-7 blowout home loss to the hated Kentucky Wildcats, where windows are being smashed by flying beer bottles and wives are looking for new relationships. Now 2-2 after back-to-back losses with Alabama coming to town Saturday, it’s getting ugly, especially on the Tony Basilio Show where this caller said it’s bad in his home.

“I’ve been watching Tennessee football for 30 years and I did something today that I’ve never done,” Vols fan said. “I messed up and threw a beer bottle through a window and my wife left me.”

“I had two beers. I wasn’t even drunk. I just can’t stand to watch this team anymore. My blood pressure’s up.

Vols fan says it was Tennessee football that did this to him and caused his wife to walk out. “My wife just looked at me and grabbed some stuff and said she’s going to her moms for a few weeks. I texted her and said blame it on [Jarrett Guarantano].”

The caller says it was Guarantano’s second pick-six interception that caused the beer bottles to fly. Guarantano was pulled in the second quarter after three consecutive turnovers that has the UT coaching staff wondering where to go next.

“It’s undecided,” Jeremy Pruitt said of his quarterback situation. “When you lose 34-7, everybody within our organization, you’ve got to look and see what went wrong. We could make changes at any level.”

It’s a gut-check week in Knoxville. The Vols are playing for marriages, windows, drywall and anything else that can be destroyed from here on out.

  1. LOL Joe…
    I threw a beer bottle thru the window AND MY WIFE LEFT ME !!!!
    Well, I only had two beers…wtf?
    Well, I had half a bottle of Jack Fire getting tuned up…then a couple beers…
    Well, I just HAD to call my local guy cuz it wiz a LOCK, and I convinced the wife that $5K would double and we’d have a paid in full vay-kay next Summer in The Keys…and then I started on the Jack Fire…
    Well, I took $20K out of the home equity line of credit without telling the wife, but I KNEW SHE’D BE PROUD OF ME for opening the casino account…and I was able to get UTENN +7.5…I bought the hook, and so I convinced the wife we’d be able to put the extension on the house so her mom could stay with us any time she was in town…

  2. I think Jim Chaney should be out in public apologizing. He has some responsibility in this marriage break up as well. Guarantano is making bad throws, but he’s also executing the plays being called from the sideline. Chaney’s play calling is atrocious, the offense doesn’t look prepared, and doesn’t have an identity. Tennessee was supposed to have one of the best offensive lines in the country this year, and they haven’t block anything yet. I lay blame at Chaney’s feet on the performances the last two weeks. Guarantano isn’t the reason Tennessee had -1 yard rushing against Georgia last week.
