Tennessee Gets Help From the 12th Man

Tennessee assistant strength coach Roderick Moore is caught on video flattening Georgia safety Tra Battle during the Volunteers' 51-33 victory over the Bulldogs on Oct. 7 at Sanford Stadium. After the play is whistled dead, Battle continues to race up the sideline and Moore, a 6-5, 330-pound former lineman at Morehouse College, sends Battle, 5-11, 176 pounds, flying to the turf. "I was just walking down the sideline," Moore told the Knoxville News-Sentinel. ... OK, it might be a bit of a WWE move, but Battle doesn't seem to mind. He gets up and runs back to join his teammates. Georgia's Mark Richt also didn't have any complaints about the incident.
