The Tennessee Vols finished the 2021 season on a bit of a sour note, falling to the Purdue Boilermakers 48-45 in the Music City Bowl last week.

There were several reasons for the Vols’ loss. First off, the officiating was….terrible.

Secondly, Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel made some perplexing calls near the end of regulation.

This week on the Big Orange Podcast, Charlie Burris and I discuss what to make of Heupel’s late-game play calling.

We also talked about how the referees completely screwed over the Vols on multiple occasions.

And finally, we give our thoughts on how to create much-needed parity in college football (we also reacted to some live college football breaking news).
