Tennessee coach Butch Jones probably gave us the best celebration of the season, when he saw his quarterback, Josh Dobbs, heave a 47-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass to Jauan Jennings that gave the No. 11 Volunteers a 34-31 win over No. 25 Georgia at Sanford Stadium.

He ran in jubilation, then he went down to his knees, apparently overcome by the emotion of the moment.
This is what it feels like to have sky-high expectations coming into 2016, and come through time and again in the most memorable of fashions. First in OT vs. Appalachian State. Then by trailing 14-0 vs. Virginia Tech. Then by trailing 21-0 vs. Florida. Then by trailing Georgia 17-0.
Well done, Volunteers, well done. We’d cry too if we had to go through this.
