Making very few mistakes and turnovers was also huge. Down the stretch, the Vols put up 34 on Ole Miss, 42 at Kentucky, 30 on Vandy and 35 on the might U in the Sugar Bowl. Funny how in all of those specials ESPN puts on about the U, they always leave out the 86 Sugar Bowl.
Yeah because we made them "bad boys" look like p*****s

Their tears wouldn't have looked good for their narrative

He was an ok qb...Had a hell of an arm but made some seriously boneheaded plays throughout his time at UT...Throwing the ball all the way across the field to stop the clock against UK was one and the other was against Maryland in the sunbowl where he took off with the ball with time running out and no sliding down at the first down marker where we kick the winning field goal ole Tony decided to keep the ball and try to truck a maryland player and out came the ball and we lose the game...It really helped that he had a bevy of super talented receivers...Clickscales, Tim Mcgee...Still a good qb but far from the best.
In 1984 the ball had to be thrown out of bounds to stop the clock. Spiking the ball versus KY would have been a penalty. One or two more seconds on the clock and TN would have had an opportunity for the game winning FG.

Kentucky won 17-12...Field goal wouldn't have helped
That’s right. TN was moving the ball so well that it seemed like with just one more play they would have won. 0:03 on the clock after the 1st down inside the 15 having just moved the ball about 85 yards. Came up one or two seconds short.
