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 back, tell one of
your boys you've got fifteen on this one. He's got a sore knee, go step
on it."McCarron bruised his knee last weekend in the second half of the Tide's win over Missouri.
There's an argument to be made in the need to be ruthless in college football. When you're suggesting to go out and attack someone who's already injured, you might be taking it a bit too far. Ainge's comments definitely get a twelve on the Massengill Scale. Which is pretty high, since the Massengill Scale is only supposed to go up to ten.
