The Bulldogs will have Tennessee‚Äôs fight song ‚ÄúRocky Top‚Äù playing on repeat throughout practice this week.
The song will be played over the loudspeaker, as per usual when Georgia prepares to play in Knoxville, Tenn.
‚ÄúWe might hear it more at the facility than we do up there because we will hear it everywhere we go,‚Äù receiver Chris Conley said of the coaches preparing the players for Neyland Stadium, which holds more than 102,000 people.
Wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley, who reeled in the go-ahead touchdown pass from Aaron Murray against LSU, hasn‚Äôt played in the Volunteers‚Äô stadium yet, but the redshirt sophomore is already well aware of its atmosphere.
‚ÄúI think it‚Äôs going to be crazier because we‚Äôre on offense and they‚Äôre going to be trying to distract us,‚Äù Scott-Wesley said. ‚ÄúThey‚Äôre going to have all the noise going, the band‚Äôs going to be playing. ‚Ä¶ There‚Äôs going to be orange everywhere. It‚Äôs going to be crazy.‚Äù
Conley said the stands in Neyland Stadium seem like they just goes straight up.
‚ÄúWhen you‚Äôre standing on the field, it actually looks like the stadium is coming over you where it‚Äôs going straight up and it makes it so much louder,‚Äù he said.
Scott-Wesley said he hates the song ‚ÄúRocky Top,‚Äù as did tight end Jay Rome.
‚ÄúYeah, not a fan of the song,‚Äù Rome said. ‚Äú‚Ä¶ It‚Äôs just an annoying song.‚Äù
