When everyone doubted the Vols, they were able to band together and beat a team that no one thought they could in Florida. The Florida linebacker Spikes claimed the Tennessee Vols quit last year, but this year it was Spikes who quit when the game got out of reach and the Vols rolled to victory over a talented Gator squad.
Without the help of the tremendous playcalling of Dave Clawson (who is absolutely in line to become the next head coach after Fulmer rides off into the sunset after winning his second National Championship), and the excellent execution of our much-heralded heisman-favorite quarterback Jonathan Crompton, none of this would have been possible. The defense who limited Florida starting from the opening drive, played like champions again.
Now it’s more of a question of who can beat Tennessee? If they keep playing like they did Saturday afternoon, that answer is nobody. With such a convincing win against a team like Florida, Tennessee is now in the driver’s seat for the SEC East, not having to claw back from behind like they had to do in previous years.
Congratulations to the Vols, and consolations to the Gators.
It’s like they do with presidential elections, the speechwriters generally write two speeches. One if they win, and one if they lose. I’ve always wanted to read the “other” speeches that have been written througout history.
Can we win another game this season? Probably not.
No one can ever accuse me of not being a die hard fan even when the times are tough, but perhaps it might be time to find another team to root for. Until they get their kinks worked out anyway. I’ve given it some thought, and it seems like perhaps the fairweather fans have the right idea. Why waste anguish when rooting for a shit team? Just root for the team that’s hot right now, and switch when it gets bad. That said, Go Commodores! THE premier team of Tennessee.
