Few college football traditions can match up to the Tennessee Volunteers' "Running Through the T," but that timeless tradition could be better.
Think about it. Do you even know what song is being played when the players and coaches, led by Smokey the bluetick coonhound, storm the field in Neyland Stadium?
It's the Vols' fight song (And when I say fight song, I mean it in a technical sense because we all know what song really resounds across 100,000 plus orange-clad fans.).
The song that's being played is "Down the Field," the official fight song of the University of Tennessee. Ugh!
My college roommate, a diehard Virginia Tech fan, showed me the electric entrance the Hokies have. It didn't take long to realize the main difference between theirs and Tennessee's...
...the usage of some badass metal music before playing the school's fight song (You won't be able to hear Metallica's "Enter Sandman" being played in the video because the crowd loses their minds so quickly after hearing the first few guitar strokes.).
Take a journey with me over the next few slides and really try to imagine the scenarios I lay out. You'll get chill bumps if you're a real Vol.
