I'll never forget that day. My Dad moved back home that day after working in Wyoming for two yrs since there were not too many good jobs in S Middle TN in the early eighties. The catch is, he rode back with his best friend who was a Bammer, and they had listened to the game on the radio. It put a damper on there relationship for awhile.
I remember the broadcast well. I was 14 years old and worked at a boarding kennel. It had several buildings but had an intercom with a radio that went to all of them. I was listening to the game at work that day and would sprint between the buildings during commercials so I didn't miss anything. Just yesterday 104.5 in Nashville did a full replay of the game and ha ha here I was again making sure I didn't miss any of the plays. Was surprised that I was so into the replay but loved it.
Have a friend to play in that game. Still holds the Vol record for most two point conversions in a single game. Kenny Jones 99. Played a lot of Basketball and Softball with him back in the day. The quickest big man I ever took the field with.
