Saturday, things went badly for the Vols. First, they angered Jamarcus Russell, the black Lorenzen, by forcing him to win a game at the wire rather than running away. No problem--he did that anyway, sending the Neyland crowd into the furious trademark silence that accompanies any game that's in doubt in the last quarter.

Fulmer undoubtedly cited their lack of fundamentals in the postgame speech. Tennessee players responded by going back to the classics: a three-player arrest for FnDC. (Fightin' n Da Club, for those uninitiated in the lingo of the Fulmer Cup.)

If there has ever been a sign that Tennessee is back...well, this is it. That and an appearance in their favorite bowl, of course.

It's all about fundamentals: fat jokes, Citrus Bowl jokes, and FnDC.
