Well, it wasn't always pretty but the Vols finally manged to score some second half points and win the game. It was more exciting than it probably needed to be, but you've got to admit that once again Vanderbilt found a way to give the victory to the Big Orange!
After hearing all week on talk shows about how this wasn't the same old Vandy and how great it was that the roles were reversed (Vandy could effectively end our bowl hopes), I have to admit when the interception went back for TD in OT and it looked like, yes, the Vols would win, I erupted with shouting and joy. And then to finally have the refs send a call to end a game our way....well, it was wonderful.
Whether or not the final play should have ended in the result it did probably depends on which team you pull for. In my mind, it was game over and I think the refs got the call right. I am sure there are some who disagree.
I also understand that James Franklin was frustrated with the loss, but that's really no excuse to not at least shake Derek Dooley's hand after the game.
But at the end of the day, it all comes down to this. We're still Tennessee and they're still Vandy!
GO BIG ORANGE!!!!!!!!
