This punt return clip has been splashed all over the Intertubes, so you may have already seen it. But if you haven’t, strap yourself in for the next minute.
You can close your mouth now.

Well hat’s off to the kid, he’s certainly good, but that’s spectacularly bad tackling.
My thinking, too. It wasn’t so much that the return was so spectacular as the tackling was spectacularly bad.
Yep. I saw a clip on TV earlier, but it was on a recap of the day type show and I had just turned the channel so I watched again hoping to see the part where the UT jockstrap is left on the field. Didn’t happen. I am glad I am not a UT fan. I’ll give Adams this: he didn’t quit. But that run back was more a lesson in the evils of half-hearted arm tackling than anything.
Just watched again, the video needs to be set to the old football follies music by anyone who knows how, it really makes the big urnge squad look like the football version of the Washington Generals, holy cow what a terrible year on Rocky Top. UF had a long run almost that bad against us though that year we played them in Gainesville during Goff’s tenure luckily the intertubes hadn’t taken off by then so our humiliation didn’t go viral.
Tennessee is just plain awful.
At some point you run out of excuses like “they are young” and just have to admit that UT is a bad, poorly coached football team. Dooley’s got ’12 and then…bye, bye.
Love your Seinfeld references, Senator. And yeah, that was some bad tackling, but you still gotta give Adams some love there, that was impressive.

Great effort by Adams (aka Pinball Wizard). And finally…
I sense great sorrow in Rocky Flop today…
I give all the credit to Adams. No one can react fast enough for that footwork where he gives it to the tackler and quickly pulls it back then reverses field twice with more split-second footwork. That’s plain impressive and not sure any would-be tackler can be found to change course quickly enough. Loved it when he pulled back and out from under two tacklers who ended up taking themselves out. Two tacklers had two shots at him in that sequence.
Nothing sucks like a Big Orange. Rocky Top hired the La. Tech coach with a losing record, and he wears orange pants with brown shoes. Wow. And his mommy sticks up for him.
