My wife and I are huge Tennessee fans and my wife is a UT Law Graduate. Our shared loved for Tennessee football was one of the things that drew us together when we were dating. Our first shared trip to Neyland was for the 2015 Oklahoma game. Fast forward to May of 2016 and I knew exactly how I was going to pop the question to my now wife, Alex. I met Alex as she was finishing her last final exam of the Spring Semester and we were about to journey to the beach. On the way to her car, I told her I wanted a picture of us with the Neyland statue, the rest, as you can see, is history.
