Ok. Time for confessions...
How many other battered/abused/pessimistic UT fans were expecting the refs to overturn the no-call AFTER the post game handshakes and Bama to drain the free throws for the win.
We are now the college equivalents of Cubs fans....
Won't lie, held my breath till they left the court.
Then was worried they would bring them back out of the locker rooms to shoot free throws!
This time it happened here. Homefield advantage still counts for something.

Yeah, I definitely wasn't convinced it was over until they had left the court. We've been burned so many times with that stuff.
This however, felt a lot like the Vandy football game last year where the refs made the wrong call to get the right outcome. In that game, they should have ruled the play dead when the ref blew the whistle incorrectly thinking Gordon was down, but they let it stand which was the right outcome. In today's game, I think we all knew that was probably a foul if the refs go by the book, but the shooter was obviously trying to draw contact as a bailout for not having a good shot attempt, it would have been a pretty cheap way to end the game. Given all the terrible calls this team has endured in SEC play, I don't feel guilty at all about a bad call going their way for once.
To quote Chaney from the end of the Vandy game, "We caught a break!!!"
Can't overturn a foul or no call so I wasn't worried.. I was shocked they did not call something though. Even though I thought it was a play on
