60 Minute Men

Oregon may be faster. Oregon may be deeper. Oregon may be more skilled. Simply put, Oregon may be better. Hell, Oregon just may win the national championship. To do that, Oregon must win on Saturday night in Neyland Stadium. But one thing they must not do is to give more heart, more fire, more passion, more effort,  and more fearless play that we do.

We don’t have to be faster in order to give more heart. We don’t have to be as skilled in order to give more fire. We don’t have to be a better football team in order to give more effort and play with less fear then they do.

We simply have to follow Neyland’s Game Maxim Number Seven as if it were the only thing left to do.

CARRY THE FIGHT TO OUR OPPONENT AND KEEP IT THERE FOR 60 MINUTES.

If we do that on Saturday night, with all our heart, fire and passion, then that’s all we can ask.

And big things can happen if we do.

And we can do it.

For we are 60-minute men.

Go Vols!

    TWO QUESTIONS:
    1) DID 1951 CENSORSHIP ALLOW THAT SONG ON THE RADIO?
    2) HAS SOMEONE SENT THE MUSIC TO THE PRIDE OF THE SOUTHLAND?

    TK:
    1) Yes, the song was banned by many radio stations. It also was a famous song in that it is considered the first “cross-over hit” – ranked #1 for several weeks on the black R&B chart and on the white pop chart. Read this summary on Wikipedia.

    2) Maybe Berry can do that!

    When I went to grad school in Chapel Hill, I learned that “60-Minute Man” was a classic song to “shag” to — either the dance from the Carolina coast, or what the British slang refers to. (I mostly did the former.)

    Carolina Beach Music! Indeed… The Platters, The Drifters, The Spinners, and yes, Billy Ward and his Dominoes.
    Br. slang – I see the key word was ‘mostly’! Ha!
