Coach Jones is really bringing the Vol nation back together, these kids wouldnt be coming on board so quick if the Fathers/Parents didnt like what they are seeing. No one can dispute the fact that he has been first class towards our former players and in state recruits. This in itself will go a long way in helping to build a solid foundation in the Football program once again.

if we could get the ones you mentioned to commit, and commit early that could really avalanche into one heck of a recruiting class , and right where it would be the most vital ,defense .

If you don't already own it, get the DVD of "The 1985 Sugar Vols" and watch the Vols beat the tar out of Miami in the Sugar Bowl. While you're at it, keep your eye on #1 Andre Creamer. Hope this kid is as good as his dad was in that game... he has good genes.

Andre was one of my favorite Vols of all-time, I know Neiko will do us proud just like his dad..GBO!

I think the best thing about these legacy commitments is their fathers were winners. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. G.B.O.!!!

I watched that game live. According to the national media coverage before the game, Tennessee had no business on the field with the mighty Hurricanes, and the game would be a sure blow out. When Miami scored on their opening drive, I thought it would be a long night for my Vols. Of course it turned out to be a long night for Miami. That was one of the greatest wins in Tennessee history. Needless to say, I WAS PROUD. G.B.O.!!!

I watched the game live, while living in Florida.

I def recall the announcers telling everyone that UT didn't belong in the game, and even added a "see?" after the opening kickoff.

First day back at School after Christmas break was fun in my Big Orange Sweatshirt.

I recorded the game on an "old" VHS tape. I watched the game so many times, the tape broke. Happy days!

The same thing happened to mine. The last viewing was at the Sigma Chi house at ETSU in 1989.

I remember Andre Creamer, and the other corner, Victor Peppers. Both were undersized even back then. Both were well under six feet tall. Johnny Majors was quoted as saying "They can both jump out of town". They were great players. G.B.O.!!!

I remember Andre Creamer running back a punt against Alabama in 1984 to set up the winning touchdown by T. Robinson. Great game. I helped take down the South goal post. Hope the statute of limitations is over. Welcome Neiko. Hope you get to help TN come back like your dad did.

Miami safety Bennie Blades was supposed to be a superman type athlete at safety. Not only did Jeff Powell out run him to the end zone, but Tim McGee passed him too.

If Coach Jones can get Kelly,Bates and the Berry twins to commit and sign with UT, it will be the base for great recruiting for several years to come.

I watched the game live also and remember that Vinny Testaverde after that opening drive was looking at the Sugar Dome roof from a lying position for almost the whole game.

Yeah. And Michael Irvin and Vinny T were supposed to beat us by themselves!

WRU in full effect No one will match up well against our WR's over the next few years!! Now all we need is a stud RB or 3!!! Go VOLS!!

If memory serves me correctly, I believe it was Keith Jackson & Frank Broyles who were the announcers for that game, and I still recall Jackson's words after Miami's 1st & only td:"And it looks like the route is on." Wow what a day for Tn! Got to admit that at the time, I was expecting the worst, like when the BB team played Kansas a few years back. Thank goodness for those bright spots.

Yes, Dale Jones, Kelly Zeigler,"Big" Richard Cooper and company put an absolute beat down the Miami offense. G.B.O.!!!

I remember that the Vols had a Coffee on the same team with Creamer.

Later in the game, Jackson said "If this keeps up I'm gonna know all the words to Rocky Top".

I remember watching that game live and thinking how would we be able to stop vinny t with both our three and four year starting corners out with injuries. Peppers and creamer did a great job replacing those starters. oh and I clearly remember Tennessee having many more fans there than Miami did. 1985 was a great year for college football. Penn st should have won the nc that year. Epic fail by joe pa. Keith Jackson frank Broyles have to be the best broadcasting pair ever for college football

Now this is TENNESSEE football. Not one negative post so far. Memories are forever. Bring back those big orange pride days. If CBJ can show the legacies that they have a place at Tennessee others will come as well. For those waiting to give us some negative karma take that phooey to your own page. THIS IS BIG ORANGE COUNTRY!!!!!! Time for Tennessee football.

My son was born that day (2 months premature)...I tease him he came out so early just to see the Vols kick Miami's butt! What a great day for me as a Vol fan and new father to remember!

GoVols!

A great night for the Vols, indeed! When the Vols got going, the noise inside the Superdome was AMAZING! I was lucky enough to be there. All the pre-game hype was about whether Miami could beat UT bad enough to get in the national championship conversation. Before the game, I was in a crowd of Vol fans along the path the team was taking from the hotel to the Superdome. When Tim McGee walked by me, I said, "Go get 'em, Tim!" He looked at me, smiled, and wagged both thumbs as if to say, "Relax; we got this!" They did, too!
