Tennessee And Alabama Commits Got Into A Funny Twitter Argument Over Sacking Blake Barnett

Defensive lineman Kahlil McKenzie has been very active in doing everything he can to help his future school, Tennessee, since committing to the Vols. Last week, he was on the Twitter recruiting trail, and now he's personally attempting to reinvigorate the UT rivalry with Alabama.

Of course, after attending The Opening, McKenzie has plenty of Tide commits following him. Perhaps the most high-profile, quarterback Blake Barnett, saw his tweet and decided to get into it with McKenzie.

McKenzie didn't take that lying down, and reminded Barnett what their on-field relationship as defensive lineman and quarterback will look like. Naturally, Barnett then added his future offensive linemen into the mix.

That didn't deter McKenzie.

Alabama has won seven in a row against the Volunteers, so the series can use a little juice. Good job on McKenzie and the Alabama guys for having some fun with it, hopefully it translates onto the field.
