Tennessee Vols head coach Josh Heupel triggered some folks on Saturday by letting his second-team offense score with less than a minute remaining in UT’s 66-24 blowout win against Missouri.

Heupel’s decision to keep scoring late even though the outcome wasn’t in doubt led to a lot of “Josh Heupel has no class” comments from fans on Twitter.

It also led to ESPN’s Chris “Bear” Fallica, a fixture on College GameDay, suggesting that Heupel’s decision to keep scoring was “a little much”.

Fallica didn’t seem to have a problem with USC “running up the score” on Colorado on Friday night.

We spend a lot of time talking about how the national media has something against Tennessee.

At times, it feels like we’re being a bit hyperbolic. But then there are comments like the one from Fallica and it makes me think that maybe there really is an anti-Tennessee bias at play.

Either way, the faux outrage over Heupel scoring late is what’s really “a bit much”. We’ve seen college football teams do this exact thing a ridiculous amount of times over the years (especially during the BCS and Bowl Alliance days).

Fallica should probably keep his thoughts to himself next time.
