Know Your Enemy: The Murky Origins Of The Rocky Top 'Woo'

A Knoxville television station is actually investigating the origins of the "woo" in the chorus of Rocky Top. (It's the offseason everywhere; just take this as irrefutable evidence that every fanbase is just as bored as yours.) Turns out there's quite the commotion up Tennessee way over who, exactly, is responsible for the pointiest end of college football's most potent psychological weapon. The wrapup is all very inconclusive, but if you want to know who might be to blame, there's names in there and everything.
