darrell flowers(lavergne): I was born on October 28, 1967 @1:28pm, right in the middle of a 27-22 loss at Florida. My dad listened to the game on the radio in the waiting room. I had a black and gold cradle shaped like a football to start my life off right. My 3 kids(16, 12, & 11) carried on the tradition with me at the bowl game. We screamed for all we were worth when BC had the ball. Unlike 80% of the walks to the car from Vandy football games in my life, this one was joyous. Congratulations on your successes from this year. Please win the SEC East and beat Fla. at Gainesville this year. Focus and Desire. VU
