Five-star Tennessee defensive tackle commit Kahlil McKenzie is an entertaining follow on Twitter. In the past week alone, he's taken a shot at SEC rivals Alabama and Vanderbilt and suggested UT alum Peyton Manning as the replacement for departed offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian

McKenzie is also a huge fan of his future coach Butch Jones, so it should come as no surprise he tweeted an edited photo of he and Jones superimposed as the two main protagonists from the classic 1980's film Top Gun.

I mean, that isn't surprising, right? Anyway here is the picture from McKenzie:

Hilarious and heartwarming stuff, but does anyone have the heart to the tell McKenzie that Goose, Jones' character, dies tragically in the movie?
