Back in the car all day headed north again scraping sand out of places I didn't even know existed. Enough information? By the way, something happened to the two posts I scheduled yesterday to go live today. There's a chance that they're there, but I just can't see them. If that's the case, you'll get two for one at 8:00 and 12:00 today. Wear one on each leg. Symmetry is all the rage.
Time for the third Round Two match up in the Best Plays of 2007 Brackety-ish Thingy. This one pits one seed Big Dan Got Mad Ups (which beat The Incontinence of a Nation 46-6) against three seed Spurrier's Incontinence, Part II (which pulled out a narrow victory over Rogan Opens Up Arky Right, 27-24).
This morning's contestants:
Big Dan Got Mad Ups (1)
At stake: A trip to Atlanta for the SEC Championship Game against LSU.
In-game context: Let's recap. First half: Vols. Second half: 'Cats. First OT: tie. Second OT: disaster for the Vols, as the Vols get the ball first and Erik Ainge throws an interception, usually a death knell in college OT. No problemo, says Big Dan Williams:
Impact: That preserved the tie and the scoreless second OT and set the stage for the Vols to finally win in the 4th OT.
Spurrier's Incontinence, Part II (3)
At stake: How many different ways can I say this? Apparently, no more, so Quote Me!
You know the story. Tennessee was not looking much like Tennessee, with the exception of the Georgia game, and was coming off a horrid loss to Alabama the week before. Would we go in the tank or would we, like so many times in seasons prior, put together a run?
In-game context: I've been saying that the Tennessee-Steve Spurrier game was one of those two-halves games, that the Vols owned the first and that the Gamecocks owned the second. That's true, mostly, but the first half actually started a bit sluggishly. That is, until this, with neither team having scored and the first quarter nearly over:
Impact: Tennessee scored a touchdown immediately after that, then two more in the second quarter while the defense held Spurrier scoreless. The second half? Never you mind about the second half. By the way, it's becoming increasingly clear that the only way to tackle Eric Berry is to facemask him.
