No knots here, just a tingle of expectation. Haven't looked forward to a game this much since at least 2016, maybe even going back to the Fulmer glory days.

Definitely more excited about the Florida game in particular than any since 2006. (which by the way, is another in a long line we "coulda shoulda" won. Still pisssed about the terrible roughing the passer call on the pick 6 of Leak :mad:)

I have only attended one of those wins. It was 2004. During that game, they did a flashback on the old Jumbotron showing highlights of the 1990 game. At random moments afterwards, there was one guy who would yell 45 to 3 as loud as he could... As that game played on, and Florida was winning, he stopped... Still remains one of my favorite UT games. I was sitting on an aisle in Y8 and had a great view of the Wilhoit game winner. At that point in my life, UT had not lost a game I had attended, but that steak ended the following year when South Carolina came to Neyland (Spurrier).

Also, back in 1990, I was in middle school and my Dad and I were unable to watch the game on TV. I still remember listening to that with him and almost being able to envision the opening Dale Carter kickoff return that started the second half onslaught. Man, I miss John Ward...

Heard the Iceman talking to Tony Basilio on today's show (check Tony's twitter feed for a link to the interview), here, I'll just post a link:

I feel Casey has not received near the amount of love he deserves from Big Orange country. Dude was a total gamer and I always felt we had a good chance to gut out a win with him at QB.

It's amazing that our best QB Peyton Manning lost all 4 of the games.

1994 Vols lost 31-0 (Todd Helton was the starting QB)
1995 Vols lost 62-37
1996 Vols lost 35-29
1997 Vols lost 33-20

Attended all these victories in Neyland except 2016 due to back injury. Also in 1970 as student when we beat them 38-7.
My two sons and wives attending this Saturday to see Hooker’s name added to this list.
Interesting Vols have only been favored 7 times over these 32 years and have won 7 though not always as the favored team.
Re. Peyton
1994...he was a freshman and did not start.
In his last three years Vols were only favored once by 3 pts in 1996. We were very good then but so was Florida.
GBO!

First, all of those games were up against the one coach that redefined the conference. No more 3 yards and a cloud of dust.

And I believe they were psyched out by game time. Spurrier fed the media their sound byte and his quotes just enough to get under the skin of UT fan base, while effectively causing the staff to probably second guess their plans.

Let’s not kid ourselves. Fulmer got uptight and it spilled over to the players.
