How to make yourself a villain with one tweet


If Alabama and Georgia fans are looking to agree on a villain in tonight’s national championship game, they should likely settle on Kevin Sherrer.

Sherrer, who at one point was the defensive coordinator at South Alabama, is the Georgia linebackers coach, at least for another 7 hours or so. After that, he and Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt will be off to their new adventures as defensive coordinator and head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers.
There’s nothing wrong with that. Coaches move up just like folks in every other profession. But Sherrer’s action this week prove he needs to Tighten Up.

Sherrer decided to use his Twitter account to let the world know what was on his mind Sunday, the day before Georgia’s first shot at a national championship in more than a quarter of a century. He tweeted: “It’s a great day to be a Vol!”

First of all, it’s not. Tennessee didn’t make a bowl game and just lost eight games this season for the first time in program history.
More importantly, who cares about the Vols at this moment?
This is a rare opportunity for Georgia and its fans. They deserve to know their coaches are all in at least until the game ends.
