The Vols football team head to Gainesville on Saturday afternoon for its rivalry game with the Florida Gators.
Ahead of the SEC clash, Tennessee defensive end Kyle Phillips met with the media to discuss the rivalry. When he was asked about his opinion on Florida, he made it very clear: “I hate Florida.”
Phillips added, “Growing up I really didn’t pay attention to Florida that much. When I got here, I just know how strong of a rivalry it is and how much they hate us, so I hate them, too.”
WATE Sports Director Marshall Hughes shared video of the comments which Phillips delivered with a smile.
