Here's one of the e-mails that was sent by an irate Rocky Topper.
“You CANNOT be so naive as to think Saban has agreed (to speak) out of the goodness of his heart,” one Tennessee fan emailed Preston. “This shrewd person is doing it to benefit recruiting. PERIOD. Don’t for a second think differently, or you are a fool.
“So, on behalf of the vast number of TN fans, thank you for doing your part in helping Saban and the hated AL program. I can only hope that people are not dumb enough to support your event.”
To make matters worse, the chamber has already sold 981 tickets for the event. Last year's dinner, honoring the BCS title-winning Tennessee football team, featuring former Vols HC Phil Fulmer and team members Peerless Price and Al Wilson, was attended by only 276 guests. Good going, Vol Nation.
