Hold your Head High

I'm not a big "Moral Victory" guy, but what UT did on Saturday in the Swamp was certainly admirable. They battled with one Crompton tied behind their back, and played inspired defense. Credit the Kiffins...Monty for a tremendous design and a fierce and confusing defense, and Lane for having the patience and wisdom to not take shots when he clearly had to be chomping at the bit. Tim Tebow was made to look human, and, in fact, his sideline ranting looked a bit foolish. For the record, Eric Berry IS the best pure football player in the land and will be collecting checks on Sundays long after Tebow is preaching on Sundays.
UT fan should feel very good about the future prospects of this staff. Couple this effort with that of Steve Sarkisian's Husky crew in dumping USC and it not hard to see the kind of talent Pete Carroll had on that staff at one time. Lane Kiffin learned to rely on the defense to keep him in the game and don't let the offense lose it...a lesson learned a week to late for the UCLA game, but at least it was learned...
