    Some that come to mind

    1) As a freshman Danny Wuerffel threw a last minute touchdown pass to Chris Doering to mark a comeback road win in Lexington.
    2) Jacquez Green return two punts of 66 and 79 yards respectively for touchdowns in 65-0 Gator victory.
    3)Trey Burton broke Tim Tebow's record by scoring 6 TD's in another Gator win.

    Wuerfful to Doering with 19 second left in the game to win it was my favorite play in that game/series.

    It's mine too because it was the only Gator away game I ever took my young son to.

    That play resulted in a ton of beer being spilled in our living room in Gville.

    I was at this place called The Thirsty Gator in Orlando watching that game. It want nuts when that play happened. Tim Groves (owner) played for the Gators in the '70's.

    35-26 in 1991, securing the SEC title, hard to top that.

    Watched the 1993 game on PPV. When we won, three of us started a dogpile in the living room. Then, had to go run around and play catch in the street, in the dark.

    Jeff Demps runs the fastest any man has run in pads on his 84 yard touchdown scamper in Lexington.

    2003, we score 21 in the 4th quarter, after sucking for 3 quarters, to beat UK 24-21. It was a pretty amazing comeback win, even if it was just UK.

    Also, I recall that Tebow had a break out game his freshman year verse UK, when he had three nice runs back-to-back, running over and stiff arming defenders.

    Favorite memory? When they had a 21-3 lead before their hopes sprung a Leak :yes:

    Least favorite memory? Tebow laying motionless on the Lexington turf.

    My grandfather ordered the game on pay per view. My Dad and I watched the game with him at his house. Talk about going from complete dejection to elation. What a memory.
