Oh man, you have no clue. I was so hyped. I went to the game, and after the fourth down we WERE going to drive down and stuff it down their throats. Until we didn't. The ensuing first play of their drive, tight end goes to shotgun and runs off tackle on the read for 80 yards. After that, Bray looked scared and Randolph went down with the ACL. Our defense quit and my heart hurt for days. If that drive after the sniffed out punt - which I called to my LSU buddy sitting right next to me - would have ended in a score, we win the game. As is, one of the many reasons why the old coaches were let go.
After that game, it would have been nastier on the streets than when Lame Kiffen up and left. That would have been a historic party for the city of Knoxville, and I might have not remember any of it the next day.

It would have been on par with the '98 Florida game, even the mighty Neyland Gestapo force wouldn't have been able to keep us off the field.
Sadly, I remember a good portion of that week's talk radio centered around the discussion of whether we should rush the field or not. Its like we jinxed ourselves.
This applies to me also. I was also in attendance. Happily in the Upper deck for this game. Was just happy to have a seat. At halftime I was as happy as I had been as a Tennessee fan in a long time. Then...Burton came in a QB and NOBODY identified him. It was more than a kick to the pills. It was a castration.
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
Burton that ! I had a small case of amnesia before you said his name. And I was in the Terrace Level and I swear the glass was shaking where the railing usually is at the bottom row.
Was it Burton? My memory is foggy because of the post game, but I was thinking it was Driskell.
The fourth quarter felt was like a real life Charlie Brown and the football moment. From the ecstasy of the NC State victory to watching UF not only come back, but take our souls in the last 1.5 quarters of that game...
I still haven't gotten over it.
No Driskell made one hell of a throw for a touchdown, maybe the next drive, but the long run was on a wildcat formation. Driskell also threw a hitch that broke several tackles an Randolph was chasing when he went down. Went for about a 70 yard touchdown across the field.
We were up 20-13 when Burton scrambled for the 80 yards. It changed the game as much as anything. About 3 mins to go in the 3rd quarter. It was all bad. Driskel made a throw from the back of the endzone that I will never forget. I cannot argue his performance in that game. It makes me sick, but I have to admit he was unexpectedly really good that day.
