Found November 21, 2011 on Shirts With Random Triangles:
Tennessee really hasn't had much to cheer about this season. The team has underperformed mostly due to the right thumb injury to star quarterback Tyler Bray and the Justin Hunter's season-ending ACL injury. So when the Vols manage to salvage their bowl game hopes and prevent a shutout against SEC opponents by defeating Vanderbilt 27-21, it's excusable if the team gets a little emotional. How emotional? Emotional enough for Tennessee head football coach Derek Dooley to drop his usual proper attitude and say one of those words Mama Barbara would probably put him across her knee and spank him for. (Warning: Non-Mama approved language) A victory against Vanderbilt may not seem much to get overexcited about, but in a season that hasn't had much to talk about outside of Derek Dooley's choices in apparel, you get your reasons to celebrate when you can.  (via Outkick the Coverage)

Post Game: Vandy

Following a week of criticism from so-called “experts” and traitorous fans (I’m looking at you Clay Travis), Coach Derek Dooley sent a clear message to the 92,000 strong, on-hand Saturday night at Neyland, that he can turn “it” on at anytime he chooses. Tennessee as in the midst of a six game SEC “calculated losing” [...]

The 5th Rule for a Long Life

According to famous singer/songwriter Jim Croce, there are four things one needs to avoid in order to live a long life: tugging on Superman's cape, spitting into the wind, pulling on the mask of the Lone Ranger, or messing around with Jim. After witnessing Tennessee's improbable win over Vanderbilt Saturday tonight, I can add a 5th rule to Croce's collection.   ...
