Tennessee football season on life support at Knoxville hospital
Tennessee's football season is being kept alive by a breathing machine and faces "impending death," doctors say. The season's health is "perilous," according to a Rural/Metro EMT who rushed it to UT Medical Center following Saturday's narrow 31-24 victory over South Alabama. Doctors say the Vols (3-2) face an uphill battle for recovery. "The anticipation of the season's impending death is based on real and substantial grounds, namely Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama," said medical doctor Brad Ritchie. "A younger season put on life support can be weaned off the machine and recover, but that it can be difficult or impossible for an older season. The longer a season is on ventilation the less the chance of recovery." Community members will hold a candlelight vigil for the season this week to pray for a miracle.
