Fox Sports South:
Vinnie and Sal Sunseri are on opposite sides of a prominent Southern rivalry, and not overjoyed about it.
Vinnie is a safety for No. 1 Alabama and father Sal is Tennessee's defensive coordinator, making Saturday night's game a highly stressful family get-together in Knoxville, Tenn.
Father and son have almost identical takes on the situation.
It's a "very, very tough" week, Vinnie said.
It's "very, very, very tough," agreed his father.
"A lot of mixed emotions," said Vinnie, a pained expression on his face. "Hard. Hard, hard, hard. I'm getting a lot of calls from the family saying good luck to me, but I know they're just giving the same, exact advice to my dad. It's tough. It's really tough. But I'm excited to see my dad."
If it's hard for them, double that for mother-and-wife Roxann. The trio watched Vinnie's brother Tino, Pittsburgh's quarterback, play during a shared open date for Alabam...

Volunteers head coach Derek Dooley is on the hot seat now that his team has begun their SEC schedule with...
Holy smokes, A.J. McCarron’s mom (the one in the middle) has got some glorious sweater stuffers. The above picture of the Alabama quarterback’s mom is making the rounds on the Internet and making a case why Mrs. McCarron (her name is actually Dee Dee Bonner…yeah, seriously) should be a first ballot SEC Milf.
How are Alabama fans handling former Tennessee quarterback's call for the Vols to "step on" Alabama QB A.J. McCarron's injured knee? Not too well - they're asking Tennessee Sports Radio, which employs Ainge as an on-air personality, to fire him.
Over 100 emails from BAMA fans wanting us to fire Erik Ainge. Not gonna happen. #BUCKFAMA #Rogue
That’s Dee Dee Bonner in the red. She’s the mother of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and would’ve still just been AJ’s mom with very little fanfare, but Tennessee fans went looking into Dee Dee’s photo collection. Shockingly, the SEC has a new subject to light up message boards with.
This all comes after BC broke the news that the Bama QB was signing boobs at a Tuscaloosa...
Most everyone knows that between Alabama, Florida, LSU and Auburn, the SEC has won the last six National Championships, but this year there is one team, Oregon, who wants the opportunity to unseat the champion conference. The SEC, who will most likely be represented by the almost NFL Caliber Crimson Tide of Alabama will be ready to compete against whoever is on the other side....
Former Tennessee quarterback Erik Ainge provides the "stay classy" moment of the day today with his strategy for how the Vols should handle Alabama on Saturday - step on Bama quarterback A.J. McCarron's already injured knee.
"I say it all the time. Nasty, attitude, get after it. Do something
crazy," Ainge said. "The first time AJ McCarron drops...

A.J. McCarron's knee is still fine.
Because Alabama center Barrett Jones...
Alabama head coach Nick Saban wouldn't say if he's suspended defensive end LaMichael Fanning for his body slam tackle of a Missouri player last week, but explained Alabama is handling the matter "internally."
Alabama head coach Nick Saban refuted Tuesday's report which said quarterback AJ McCarron had a slightly torn meniscus, praised Tennessee's offense and discussed which players are capable punt returners at Wednesday night's presser.
No one can argue at this point about which team is number one in college football. It is without a doubt the Alabama Crimson Tide. They easily have the best offensive line in the nation led by center Barrett Jones (Sr. 6-5 302, no sacks allowed) and the rest of the line is loaded with definite future NFL talent. The Tide are currently 25th overall in rushing with 217.2 yards per...
