Part 2 of Cheese Around the SEC is here. I think you had to know this guy would be a part of it.
OK, we all know there's a lot of cheese there, but you've made it work for you and we love you for it. Whether you're wearing a hideous orange suit or painting your chest for women's basketball games, your enthusiasm and complete lack of shame amuses us endlessly, and has drawn fans and good players to a program that had been struggling.
Five years ago, it would have been unthinkable to consider the Tennessee basketball program a power house. The program hadn't had any sustained success... well, not in my lifetime at least.
You came in and everyone thought you were a buffoon. Then you started winning. A lot. No one thought that anymore.
One brief warning, however. Keep winning. As Crash Davis said,"If you win 20 in the show, you can let the fungus grow back and the press'll think you're colorful. Until you win 20 in the show, however, it means you are a slob." If you stop winning, they'll think you're a slob again.
The cheese is obvious, but it's still good for you. You are cheesy grits.
Tomorrow: mac & cheese.
