Hearing the news that Butch had finally been fired. I think my celebration went something like this: pic.twitter.com/UHLpdDvOQe

T Martin to Peerless Price in ‘99 Fiesta Bowl. 2016 Florida game. 1998 homecoming vs UAB. Ohio St was 1; UT was 2. Late in 2nd half Neyland announcer Bobby Denton comes on w/ “Scores of interest—Ohio State University 21…Michigan State University 24”. Neyland came UNGLUED! #VFL

Vividly recall the blocked FG versus ND in 1991…..the euphoric feeling lasted for hours..

2013 game winning FG against #9 South Carolina… I was sitting behind the goal post Palardy kicked it thru.. first big win in a while

My first UTvFL game in 04. Wilhoit kick FTW! Lost my voice that game.
— Drew Horner (@drewtorious) June 27, 2018
Beating UF — I was watching the game with friends at my place. My best friend, in attendance, big Gator guy… after the game I decided to play "My House" by FLOrida (I think you can see the poetic justice in that).
— CB (@Crburton512) June 27, 2018
I had played the song a TON over the course of that year so natrually he asked "can we listen to ANYTHING else?!"
Jumped on my coffee table right after hitting the "play" button to Rocky Top. Didn't drop a word.
You'll always be…. Home Sweet Home to me

I tried to do a back flip over my couch after the Georgia hail Mary. . . .I do not know how to back flip
— Codey (@CocoCodey615) June 27, 2018
Miracle at south bend. Went out on the field after the blocked field goal and kicked up chunks of sod. Brought them home and sold them at school for $20 a piece. Kept 1 pc in a pot for 6 months until it died. I was in middle school.

Dwayne Goodrich pick six in NC game. Was there as an 11 year old. Sealed the game essentially.

The Dobbs- Jennings touchdown v. Georgia, was holding my friends newborn baby. I forgot all sense of my immediate surroundings and stood up, holding the baby like Mufasa held Simba. Glad the kid isn’t deaf now or I would have some ‘splainin to do. @bogwink
— Morgan Godfrey (@PharmAXO) June 27, 2018
Going way back to 1998 when Florida misses the FG and we took a step closer to the Nat’l Championship. I was in grad school and ran out on the field. Also, loved it when we beat them on my 40th bday in 2016.
— Tiffany Fannin (@bluevol1976) June 27, 2018
Arkansas's Clint Stoerner's fumble at Neyland and Jauan Jennings' Hail Mary catch to beat UGA. Family spontaneously huddled and danced in circles until dizzy.
— Greg Poston (@GregPoston) June 27, 2018
Heave between the hedges. Falling to my knees and screaming in disbelief.
— Jeremy J. Lloyd (@JeremyJLloyd) June 27, 2018
Georgia Hail marry. Ran outside my UT student apartment shot gunning a beer shirtless hugging and dancing with neighbors I had never met
— John Hodges (@19JPH96) June 27, 2018
16’ Florida. Ran around the entire bar hugging strangers for 30 full minutes, my friends thought they lost me
— Vol Fan Jeff (@JTRock21) June 27, 2018
Stormed the field with my dad after Florida ‘98. I’ll never forget that.
— ericd1022 (@ericd1022) June 27, 2018
Watched the UGA Hail Mary at my son’s FSU apartment with Doak Campbell Stadium in the background. We are yelling and screaming and a few minutes later, FSU loses at home on a 50+ yard FG to UNC. High to low in a few minutes.
— Scott Dulworth (@ScottDulworth) June 27, 2018
Wilhoit 2004. My parents left when he missed PAT. they told me to meet them at the car. When I got there my dad just shook his head.

Sweet sugar bowl!!! Partied all night on Bourbon Street!!!

Jennings hail Mary catch. Scared the whole house as everyone else gave up and was not watching. Until I came off the top rope with a war scream! Heavy drinking insued at the local watering hole
— Travis Gamble (@rockytop513) June 27, 2018
2013…. Pig Howard dove for the endzone in the Smokey Gray unis to beat UGA in overtime only to be ruled a fumble. Went from running around the living room screaming to staring at the TV in disbelief. Best TV portrayal of @Neyland_Stadium environment since Fulmer imo. #chills
— Dustin Maybin (@dsmaybin0308) June 27, 2018
You poor 30 and under folks and your "big wins"……
Florida 1998, first game as student, was sitting in DD row 4. Got kissed my a girl I didn't know 4 hours earlier, jumped into a friends arms in celebration and nearly went over ledge, and then stormed the field.

When Hurd(?) (maybe wolf) caught the pass in the final seconds to complete the comeback against SC, I freaked out. My gf, now wife, was sitting on my lap, and just about ended up in the floor because I jumped out of my seat so fast. I also almost cried in Neyland when we beat FL.
— Wacko Oliver (@Jordan_Oliver7) June 27, 2018
The day Schiano was smacked down as the possible next head coach. Stuck my UT flag in my neighbors yard. He’s an Ohio grad/fan.
— The Dude (@TheDude1234) June 27, 2018
98 vs. Florida. Don’t remember the celebration but I remember that I’ve never before or after wanted a team to win as bad as I did that night. I was 14 at the time.
— Jonathon (@jbell20101) June 27, 2018
UT v LSU, 2005. The hurricane game. Our apartment complex went absolutely bonkers in the courtyard after. Some guy raged out and uprooted a large bush. Things were set on fire. It was unreal.
— Alex Nickle (@FiveCentVFL) June 27, 2018
Notre Dame in South Bend in '91 when they missed the fg. They actually let us run around on the field. Nothing will ever top it.
— Joe Vols (@THEjoevols) June 27, 2018
It was Malone’s TD against Florida. I was up in section OO suffocating my best friend to death with a bear hug after tackling him to the ground.
— Brian Cipcic (@The_Cipcicening) June 27, 2018
Wilhoit Gators 2004. Made an absolute fool of myself at a bar in front of my then fiance. I cannot believe she married me after that.
— Matt Williams (@matt_b_williams) June 27, 2018
Florida ‘98, rushed the field and carried goalpost down Cumberland.
— BigOrangePruitt (@BigOrangePruitt) June 27, 2018
Tied for me.
2013 SC: The Marquez grab was special. But I remember staying seated and calm because I refused to get my hopes up for a big win again. Then Palardy hit the FG and I lost my damn mind. Woke my brother up from a dead sleep. He didn’t seem to enjoy that.
— Jordan Burns (@VolSportsTalkJB) June 27, 2018
LSU 2010. Stripped off my clothes in preparation of a celebratory bedding of my lady. Too many men on the field. We proceed to lose the game which starts a nude argument between the lady and I ultimately ending our relationship.

This was my candid reaction to the UGA Hail Mary pic.twitter.com/GgOYIXXXto
— Matt McConnell (@mcmcconnell) June 27, 2018
I shit my pants at the ‘79 Notre Dame game at Neyland. To be fair I was 4. But I was pretty excited.
— Colonel Jimenez (@ColonelJim3) June 27, 2018
Eric Gordon pick-6 in OT to beat Vanderbilt in 2011. I'm a Vol fan from Pennsylvania, it was my first ever Tennessee game, we were front row and I nearly fell over onto the field. Never heard anything louder than that roar.
— Mike Fenner (@Fenner_6) June 27, 2018
I ran outside my house and took a lap around the cove screaming and singing Rocky Top after the Hail Mary (God the first 5 weeks of 2016 were so much fun)
— Grant Barnett (@barnett020) June 27, 2018
2016 GA- I was at my brothers house with his family and we were devastated over the GA Hail Mary. Then we win with a Hail Mary, and we all yelled and hugged while jumping up and down. Neighbors called because the heard us. The FL game is close because I was there for it.
— Amy (@sweetiepieaims) June 27, 2018
Underrated one…… Dan Williams field goal block vs Kentucky in 07 and stopping Andre Woodson on 2pt conversion to go to Atlanta

The punt block TD against Georgia a few years back is right up there with tre Hail Mary.
— Garrett Bell (@Garrett40Bell) June 27, 2018
2007 Tennessee Kentucky game that went to like 4OT. When Williams blocked their game winning field goal in 2OT I went CRAZY. Subsequently went to the SEC championship and got our asses handed to us by LSU. Good times
— Jack Gulley (@GuljJack) June 27, 2018
Hail Mary = Crying
One that I’ll never forget because I felt so dumb since the game is irrelevant now. Bray to Justin Hunter vs Ole Miss with a tipped slant pass for an 80 yard TD. I stood up so fast and screamed so loud I pretty much passed out in GG
— The Rooster (@Orange__White) June 27, 2018
Never screamed louder in my life than when Jauan made this catch pic.twitter.com/e1O5pq4f4h
— Sham “Wally” Shoore (@samvfl_) June 27, 2018
It’s only because my brother played in high school with Jauan Jennings and I know him, the TD against Florida in 2016 when he HUMILIATED Tabor. I JUMPED SO HIGH THAT MY HEAD NEARLY HIT THE CEILING FAN IN MY HOUSE. Most satisfying win in my UT fandom lifetime!
— CJ Eke (@cjizzleman) June 27, 2018
Dobb nail boot!! Watching with UGA fans. Ran outside across the street and did a front flip into the neighbors yard all while spraying beer all over the place then Stone Cold two beers on said UGA buddy’s porch hahahaha
— VOLSKI21 (@Falkogreg) June 27, 2018
2016 Florida watching that comeback actually happen and realizing that we actually beat them was enough for me to completely lose it.
— Chris Madden (@cmadden222) June 27, 2018
Jauan Jennings 67-yard TD catch vs Florida.
— Todd Mawyer (@ToddMawyer) June 27, 2018
Jennings killing Gators in 2016. I was there, and about lost my mind in the upper deck.
For Jennings UGA catch I was at a bachelor party and fell in the floor crying.

Price’s TD catch in the Championship game. My dad and i jumped over the coffee table and ran with him all the way to the end zone

I was streaming the game at a wedding when JJ caught the pass from Dobbs. I jumped back and threw my hands up. Chair went flying and 180 people were staring at me. But at least I got this photo for my man cave out of it? pic.twitter.com/ueta3bPmdi
— Benton Warden (@Benny_Warden) June 27, 2018
I worked hospitality/premium seating areas at a South Carolina the past two years and the UGA/TN game, during the Hail Mary I almost got fired because I yelled and jumped and was celebrating… not realizing that Carolina had fumbled at that exact moment to A&M.
— Joshua (@gotimekells) June 27, 2018
Georgia Hail Mary- almost punched my tv (LIKE HOW COULD HE GET THAT WIDE OPEN?!)
Tennessee Hail Mary- Screamed and cried running around my apartment like a banshee.
— Charlie Howard (@UtVol25) June 27, 2018
Sadly, 2012 UT vs NCState. I was leaving the GA Dome on top of the world. Everyone was singing rocky top and high fiving each other. The way Bray, CP, and Hunter played on O was incredible. I thought for sure SEC East…but, Tennessee.
— Seth Meredith (@meredith_seth) June 27, 2018
Dunno if I saw it posted yet, didn’t want to scroll but 2003 at Miami was awesome. Broke their home win streak I believe and Jason Allen was a beast
— Matt Norris (@CoachNorr) June 27, 2018
Another more forgotten moment was when our defense forced 5 turnovers on 6 consecutive plays against Western KY in '13. Never seen anything like that.
— Max Vols (@MVols95) June 27, 2018
UGA Hail Mary game, hugged 2 grown men, ran outside into the street back into the house & fell into the floor crying while mumbling “ OH MY GOD HE CAUGHT IT” over & over.

Tennessee vs Georgia in 2015. Marched, and I mean actually matched, from my house in the fort to the bars. Yelling the V-O-L-S V-O-L-S go Vols go the entire way. Arm in arm with a couple buddies.
— Madison (@madbrow98) June 27, 2018
I turned off Vols Georgia in 2016 and started played video games after Eason bomb. An hour and a half later during a break from playing I un paused the DVR and watched the ensuing Kickoff and Hail Mary. I lost complete control. There’s been bigger games that was best reaction
— buffaloblue (@buffaloblue) June 27, 2018
Probably 16 Georgia. I didn’t even get to see it though. Had to go to wedding and was getting texts from my brother what was going on. It went a text of we freakin lost to WE FREAKIN WON. Had to control myself because this was during the ceremony. I cried as the bride walked out.
— Zach Pickle (@zpickle90) June 27, 2018
I believe it was 2012, when the 11th ranked gamecocks came to town and we upset them in a walk off field goal, I was in the end zone the whole team dog pilled in
— Drew Fitzsimmons (@Drew_Fitz4) June 27, 2018
The second half comeback against LSU with Clausen in 2005. Tennessee Tech campus went crazy. Night classes at a school that wasn’t UT had to end early because of this game
— Don England (@Don_C_England) June 27, 2018
When I went to the Georgia game two years ago and almost left after they scored! Went from getting barked at by GA fans to the few fans in my section singing rocky top all the way to the shuttle buses!
— Dez B (@d_beezy8) June 27, 2018
Ward narrated some of my happiest moments, including the 1998 “pandemonium reigns” game. Cooper missed his FG, and I was knocked into the lap of a large woman during the uproar. She kissed my forehead and screamed “Go VOLS,” before we all stormed the field. #goVols #JohnWard
