Look at it this way. They had four 3 and outs so the most they could have had was 36. It's academic as to the exact number of yards.

If you read the story again it said South Carolina scored 52 points against Arkansas, but only had 15 yards in total offense in the fourth quarter against UT. If you go to the drive chart on the official stat sheet at utsports.com, South Carolina had three possessions in the fourth quarter and gained one yard on the first possession, three yards on the second possession and eight yards on the third possession for a total of 12 yards.

As I said, those numbers are straight off the official box score on the UT athletic department site.

I know this...it was McCullers who squished Shaw.
Lesson to be learned here.
Dan might not always catch you, but if he does...don't fight it.
Resign to your fate and play again.

Sat. will be Biblical, remember the story about David vs Goliath. We all know who won that battle.
Anything is possible so tighten up the chin straps make sure the sling shot is in good working order and less go put a fatal rock right between Bama's eyes.
If David who was a 28 point underdog to Goliath and won, then I say we got a shot on Sat. I believe do you? Go Vols!

It seems Big Dan is just starting to realize what a dominating player he can be when he gives it all he's got. I saw it over and over in my coaching days. It just takes some guys a while to realize that they can do more than they THINK they can; that there is a difference between playing until you are tired and playing until you are EXHAUSTED, and that as a young guy you can RECOVER from being exhausted. Some guys never do learn that.

It's about time Big Dan started being a disruptive force. With his size and strength he should be creating mayhem on every play. He can definitely do it if he will just give the effort every time. Come on Dan show the bammers that YOU are the man on Saturday! GBO

Just glad to see Big Dan play the way I hoped he would and could play. He has the ability, just needs more junk yard dog in him.Got to get mean against Alabama.
