The Neal play at the end of the first half was one of the strangest plays I've seen in my more than 45 years of watching football at the high school, college and pro levels. The pitch was almost something you'd would expect in a Pop Warner game.

I don't know if Neal would have fumbled if he had been on a regular running play or if the play was something he just improvised. In the end it was clear that Neal tried to shuffle the ball forward and Spurrier, who is one of the biggest cry babies in the game, didn't complain about the call.

Tiny got owned in the first half. Everybody that watched knows it if they are honest about it. He caused a couple of Worley's passes to be off as he got to him during the throw. Due to the adjustments at half they had to move Clowney over to James/Bullard's side and they were able to neutralize him.

And I agree - that forward toss by Neal was just strange. Glad it worked out for us. It's about time we got a good break.

RECALL ARMANI TOOMER'S SUPER BOWL CATCH? Well, in my view, North's sensational catch does him one better, his right arm was being held by SC defender while Toomer used 2 hands in his great catch. Unbelievable big time play by our freshman!

In the ESPN post game all they talked about was what a great game Clowney played. You would have never known the Vols had won until the last 10 seconds of the broadcast when it was mentioned. At least there are no "S's" in Clowney so Lou Holtz didn't get tripped up too badly or spit on the camera.

Yeah, I think his emotions got the better of him in the early going. He seemed to be trying to go forward to meet Clowney at the line so as to prevent him from getting off the ball quick, but Clowney is a little too quick and smart for that to work. Tiny did better when he took a backward step to keep Clowney in front of him and maybe take a wider path to get into the backfield. The extra help didn't hurt, either. Both players may have helped themselves overall but I'm sure glad the Vols won the game!
