But for the most part, they keep things civil he says, "It’s actually pretty cordial. Like, if Tennessee’s playing anybody but Georgia, I pull for Tennessee, and if Georgia’s playing anybody but Tennessee, Lauren’ll pull for Georgia. I mean she’ll even put on a red shirt. I mean, she’ll go with me there" So what happenes when the Dawgs and Volunteers play each other this Saturday? "We do not watch that game together," Thomas says emphatically. "We don’t watch the Georgia-Tennessee game together. It is not good for anybody that’s around us. So we won’t be together.”

And who will Willa and Ada be cheering for? Well, their allegiance was decided by a bet their parents made. One that Thomas lost.

“Every kid, me and Lauren have made bets and I’ve lost both bets. So both of our kids are technically supposed to be Tennessee fans, but I’ll sneak some Georgia in there when they get old enough to understand it.”
