Alabama's Nick Perry Posts Photo Of Himself Wearing Tennessee Gear As A Kid, Calls It "Ugly Orange"

Alabama vs. Tennessee isn't quite what it used to be, given the fact that the Crimson Tide have won the last seven matchups in a row. But U of A safety Nick Perry certainly recognizes how important the game is to alumni - he's been talking about it all week. Thursday, he also got in on the #TennesseeHateWeek hashtag that's been trending on social media.

Perry posted a photo of himself as a kid wearing Tennessee gear, but commented that the Vols color is "ugly orange." We're fairly certain he's standing next to former UT coach Phillip Fulmer. 

According to Rivals, Perry was never offered by Tennessee and didn't consider the school, regardless of what this photo suggests. Either way, it adds a little fuel to the fire for Saturday's game.
