It’s football time in Tennessee where longtime gridiron traditions are cherished – from Rocky Top to the Pride of the Southland Marching Band. At the start of every game inside the colossal Neyland Stadium, thousands of the football faithful rise to their feet, remove their hats and pause for the pre-game prayer.

thank you, why should only one side be banned?
I am proud of UT....Go Vols!!
Good on 'em. Everyone should treat the "Freedom From Religion Foundation" nutjobs with the same contempt. Stop caving in. Ignore their letters, whiz on their lawsuits.
Make them call out the National Guard to stop a prayer at a UT football game (/s).
When youre not religious or are of another faith and you get prayed at during events, its really very grating.
Um, pardon me Annie...what the heck is that supposed to mean? "Get prayed at"????? Is that some sort of new hate crime? And here I thought that prayers were directed towards the Almighty.
The Vols came up to play BC a while back. Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met at a football game.
Exactly...I was listening to a pastor the other day who said he was 'offended by NOT being able to pray at sporting events', and he advised the same course of action that you stated in your post. Tell the left to 'stick it where the sun doesn't shine'...
Go Big Orange! (being an Alabama fan....I can’t believe I just said that. *chuckle*)
I’m glad they’re fighting these nut jobs!!!!
I can’t remember which writer it was ... maybe David Goldberg, “Spengler” ... who observed that one of the problems with modern America is that we treat crazy people much too politely, thus encouraging to continue crazy behavior.
From the article: When youre not religious or are of another faith and you get prayed at during events, its really very grating.
What about when you’re not a left-wing, anti-American, commie POS and you continually get commied on by your commie professors?
“Its really out of place. Its hurting all those people that dont have that belief and ostracizing them.
LOL LOL LOL LOL!
[I really need a more “Christian” way to say that....]
As a Christian mizzz Galor I’m offended that my tax dollars are subsidizing abortions against my beliefs. At least prayers at sporting events don’t cost anyone a dime.
Godless leftists have plenty of time in eternity for no prayers.... Yikes..
Thank you University of Tennessee ... Rocky Top ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKbOtWeAEnY
Banning prayers is anti-Religion, and thus illegal in a Nation that was founded on Freedom of Religion. DUH!
BTW, Liberal Agenda Media, which part of the word “Freedom” do you not understand?
Now I almost feel bad we beat them last Saturday .... almost.
Not too long ago in a Tennessee Volunteer’s Stadium (2010) the Orange and Blue then Rocky Top ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Rjxw8EByTY&feature=related
A bit of history regarding Rocky Top ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQPOTUJZO2M&feature=related
...so what happened to the leftist/communist ‘anti-bullying’ movement in this country? “Freedom From Religion Foundation” certainly fills the bill when it comes to ‘bullying’...stinking hypocrites.
You Florida fans can be proud of Jimmy Cheek. UT hired him away from you.
