Most of the Tennessee Volunteers’ games this season have been lopsided, and it turns out the same thing can be said about the team’s goal post.
Prior to this afternoon’s game between Florida and Tennessee, the goalpost was crooked because multiple players on Dan Mullen’s squad tapped it before heading into the locker room.
The stadium crew managed to correct this issue in time for kickoff, but fortunately Gators reporter Kassidy Hill was able to take a video of the goalpost before it was fixed.

This goalpost is an accurate depiction of how this season has gone for the Volunteers.
Jeremy Pruitt had the Volunteers playing at a high level toward the end of the 2019 season. Clearly that momentum didn’t carry over to this season, as the program has lost five games in a row.
Tennessee has made a change at quarterback for this afternoon’s game, replacing Jarrett Guarantano with Harrison Bailey. It’s a tough spot for the freshman gunslinger to be in since he’ll have to match score for score with Kyle Trask, who might just be this year’s Heisman Trophy winner.
Florida currently has a 3-0 lead over Tennessee in the first half. The game is being broadcast on CBS.
