From Goat to Hero

I've never seen a kicker go from missing the potentially game-tying 4th extra-point to hitting a game-winning 50-yard field goal before Jason Wilhoit tonight, as Tennessee beats Florida at home 30-28.

The two true freshman quarterbacks, despite 3 turnovers, were great - Eric Ainge played more than Brent Schaeffer this time, but that was mainly due to Tennessee struggling to come from behind most of the game.

The defense was porous early in the game, but came through in the end when it was needed.

Tennesee was penalized once - ONCE - for 5 yards.

This team is special.

UPDATE (09/20/04): Sorry, we had another penalty for "Excessive Celebration" after the winning field goal. Plus there were two holding penalties on kickoffs that were declined. But who cares??
