A Tennessee Vols band member appeared to pass out during today’s halftime performance at Neyland Stadium where it was blazing hot — let’s call it 90 & 60% humidity — but the official statement from the band is that everyone is OK.
“Everyone is ok. Just had to get into some shade, hydrated and cooled off,” the UT band’s account, @potsband, replied when asked on Twitter about the situation.
As for the team, the Vols defense gave up 17 4th quarter points and lost 38-30 to Georgia State, a team that had two wins in 2018.
Hope this guy is doing OK. https://t.co/6lzRZ9G6dQ

So far today, a boat in the Vol Navy caught fire and sunk, a band member passed out on the field, multiple heat strokes in the stadium. And we lost at home to a team that went 2-10 last year. So yea. It’s going to be a great season.
