5 Reasons to Hate on Georgia


2. Hob-nailed boot call

Hard to find a more heartbreaking Volunteer loss than the 01 debacle against Georgia. It was Mark Richt’s first-ever game against UT. First-ever road game as well. Tennessee got off to a great start with with a 14-3 first-quarter lead. But by half it was knotted at 17. Until Georgia took the lead with just over five minutes to play in the fourth on Billy Bennett’s 31-yard field goal.

The Vols would strike back, however, taking the lead with just 44 seconds remaing on a Casey Clausen to Travis Stephens screen pass that went for a 62-yard touchdown. The extra point made it 24-20.

After a (god-forsaken) squib kick, Georgia set up shop on their own 41 with 39 left to play. The Vols, in a prevent D, proceeded to let freshman quarterback David Greene lead the Bulldogs all the way down the field with the help of a couple of key completions to tight end Randy McMichael. Greene then found a wide-open Verron Haynes in the middle of the end zone for the game winner with just five seconds left on the clock. 

Larry Munson added insult to injury with his famous “hobnail boot” call. WHICH Rece Davis brought up to David Pollack during last night’s Texas Tech – Oklahoma State game.

“We just stepped on their face with a hobnail boot and broke their nose.”

C’mon, man.
