Ashley Todd Arrested In University of Tennessee Sweatshirt

It's Been That Kind Of Year For Tennessee

To say it's been a bad year for the University of Tennessee football team and their fans would be an understatement. The team has lost pretty much at will and the team's starting running back will only talk to people in Pterodactyl. Meanwhile the fans want Phil Fulmer's head on a platter. In other words, it's a complete nightmare.

But as down in the dumps as the football team, the fans, and the school is, they definitely didn't need this very much unwanted publicity.

The woman you see above is Ashley Todd. Last Thursday she showed up at a police station and told them that she'd been attacked by a "dark skinned black man." Todd, who is - correction, was - a McCain volunteer, said the man, who was an Obama supporter, proceeded to give her a black eye and then carve a backwards B into her face after he learned Todd was working for McCain. 

Police were obviously a little puzzled as to why someone would carve a backwards B on her face, and for good reason. Turns out Todd made the whole story up and finally admitted so yesterday.

The bad news for Tennessee is that the picture up there of Todd getting arrested is everywhere all across the nation now. And there's tons of video of it as well. But hey, I guess it's free advertising, right? Come to the University of Tennessee, home of complete psychos.

And if you think I'm unfairly picking on Tennessee, I assure you that I'm not. That's because Tennessee fans have a habit of showing in rather unique scenarios. And by "rather unique scenarios" I mean "crime scenes."

This picture on your left is of the 2007 father of the year, who decided to rob a bank with his toddler son in tow, while of course wearing a Tennessee sweatshirt. Go Vols!

Man, what in the hell is wrong with Volunteer fans? I mean, aside from the fact that they cheer for Tennessee, of course.

Lets not forget the hacker who hacked into Sarah Palin's e-mail account attended Tennessee. I love watching Tennessee suffer living here in Knoxville. Mainly because Fulmer should have been fired years ago and I always told fans he's bringing your team down. Yet in the offseason he got a contract extension for doing nothing the previous few years. I'm just confused to the whole mess they have here.
