Well, the officials tried their best to give the game to South Carolina but in the end the Vols pulled out a win against Spurrier and the Gamecocks. I guess we know where all that millions Spurrier got paid in D.C. went--to pay off the refs in this game. There were so many blind eyes turned and phantom calls to help South Carolina in this game that it was criminal.
Once again, I was impressed by Eric Ainge in the fourth quarter. Whereas last year he would have imploded, this year he shows leadership, driving Tennessee down to the deciding touchdown. Please, please let David Cutcliffe stay around next year to help this growth continue.
I will admit I am sick to death of ESPN's completely biased coverage. Seriously, if Todd Blackledge were any more in love with Syvelle Newton, they'd have to pick out china patterns together. I mean, we heard this report of him pulling out a poem or something after their go-ahead TD drive. Maybe it was some religions material, we're told. What is his next trick--walk on water?!? What in the world is it with ESPN and any QB who plays the Vols and we have to hear their whole life story or hear their sob story. Waaaah, get over it. Come on ESPN, at least pretend like you've not got a bias.
Oh well, the Vols still won. And a win is a win. Especially when you get to see Spurrier frustrated. That is priceless.
GO BIG ORANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
