TENNESSEE ATHLETICS OFFERS FREE FOOTBALL TICKETS TO HURRICANE EVACUEES
Residents of North Carolina and South Carolina may receive a complimentary ticket to Saturday’s game vs. UTEP
September 12, 2018

"Our hearts go out to all the families whose lives have been impacted by the hurricanes and tropical storms along the Atlantic coast," Fulmer said. "One of our four pillars is warmth, and we feel this is an appropriate way to bring that to life. Certainly, a football game is relatively insignificant in comparison to the realities these evacuees are facing. But if we can provide just a few hours of distraction and normalcy for these families, I believe we should do all we can to make that possible for them."

If I had to evacuate my home knowing that I may never see it again, going to a football game would be the last thing on my mind. But it's a nice gesture. I'm sure there are plenty of unsold tickets available, so maybe this will make the place look a little more full on TV. And if a future 5* QB happens to visit and enjoys the experience, so much the better.

I think it's a nice thing and kudos for them doing it.

I seen some funny stuff on other teams boards posted about this. One poster posted....: "Haven't those poor people been through enough without sitting and watching UT play."
