In 1998 my Dad and I attended almost every home game. Without a doubt the most memorable was the game against Arkansas. Both teams 8-0 on national TV, terrible weather and the Vols facing adversity every single play. Late in the game I was begging my Dad to leave after we were down and Arkansas was just killing the clock. My Dad looked at me and said, “it’s not over until the clocks read zero!” The very next play the infamous Stoerner Stumble occurred and we recovered the ball. As the orange marched towards victory and the crowd excited from the turnover the stadium was so electric and loud it sounded like a blast of white noise! My father passed away a few months ago and this was our fondest memory of attending games together in Neyland!
