That’s not what Tennessee football’s official account has done in the wake of Saturday’s upset loss, though.The Volunteers’ official account has decided to just not weigh in at all.Tennessee, which fell to Georgia State in the biggest upset of Week 1, has not tweeted since early in the fourth quarter on Saturday.The last tweet: True again.@bmancimaglia knocks it through from 31 yards.#Vols in front, 23-21. 12:05 left to play. pic.twitter.com/WzHkvjR3xf— Tennessee Football (@Vol_Football) August 31, 2019As you can see, this tweet has received nearly 500 responses, basically all of which come from angry Tennessee fans.This is the most recent tweet from the Tennessee football account. Needless to say, it got ratio’d. https://t.co/s3LIx3tHKX— Andy Staples (@Andy_Staples) September 1, 2019Someone check on Tennessee football. I’ve never seen a team’s twitter account not tweet a final score, even in a loss. https://t.co/sfvuCRD3tC— Shawn Smith (@gbbcountry) September 1, 2019As of noon E.T. on Sunday, the Volunteers’ account had yet to tweet anything new.We’ll set the over/under on a new tweet appearing on Tennessee’s feed at 3 p.m. E.T.last_img
