Fresh off of blowing a massive lead at home to Oklahoma two weeks ago, they finally … FINALLY had the opportunity to end the Florida Gators’ eleven game winning streak over them.
THINGS WERE GREAT! The Rocky Top faithful had a two score lead and were asking the national TV audience to watch them whip and watch them nae nae.
But then, Tennessee Tennessee’d really hard — scoring a touchdown in the fourth quarter to go up by 12 points … AND THEY KICKED THE EXTRA POINT INSTEAD OF GOING FOR TWO!?!?!?
JONES on not going for two: We had great confidence in our defense, so we felt comfortable in that decision.— Tennessee Football (@Vol_Football) September 26, 2015
I’m sure that won’t backfire or anything if Florida scores two touchdowns OH LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED
And then to put the cherry on top: here is Coach Jones celebrating what he thought was a game-winning buzzer-beater field goal for the Volunteers but oops it actually missed, sorry.
Poor Rocky Top.
Teams to lead by 13+ in 4th Q were 188-2 this season.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) September 26, 2015
Now it’s 188-3 – after second such loss by Tennessee (also against Oklahoma)
P.S. In my completely unbiased opinion: I think I have to admit that my Whip/Nae Nae is better than that Tennessee fan’s version.
