Tennessee Volunteers running back Marlin Lane had himself a fine Saturday, swooshing for 106 yards and tantalizing many a sports writer with name pun possibilities. But it was his 40-yard touchdown that made for the biggest surprise, as it wasn't even supposed to happen:
"I really didn't know I was going to score," Lane said. "I was just running.
"They told me to get five yards and (set up) a field goal. I just decided to try to get more than five, just keep breaking tackles and get closer for the kicker."
Let's all get out there and decide to get more than five today. Marlin Lane is your new motivational poster.
