Twitter Mocks Tennessee Trash Can, and Rightly So (Tweets)

Embattled Tennessee Volunteers football coach Butch Jones does not know how the internet works.

Jones introduced a new gimmick during the Vols’ season opener against Georgia Tech on Monday night. Every time a member of his defense causes a turnover, that player has to take the ball and dunk it in a trash can. But not just any trash can. No no no. They have to dunk it in the official Tennessee Volunteers “Team 121” Turnover Trash Can, which is to be held up by the official Tennessee Trash Can Holder Guy.

Take a look:

The problem, of course, is that Tennessee fans do not think Butch is a very good coach. If Nick Saban did something like this at Alabama, people would be like, “Oh, a turnover trash can. Okay. Sure.” But Butch Jones is not Nick Saban, and Tennessee is not Alabama.

Jones is in his fifth year at Tennessee, and fans have had enough. On Monday, Tennessee’s defense was absolute garbage, allowing first year GT quarterback TaQuon Marshall to rush for 249 yards and five touchdowns.

Needless to say, Twitter was quick to make a connection between Butch Jones’ trash can and the product on the field:

You kinda set yourself up for that one, Butch.
