It may be the best 15 yards the Vol football team has ever surrendered.I’m referring to the 15-yard penalty assessed to UT defensive back Rashaan Gaulden for unsportsmanlike conduct following a Vols interception return for a TD Saturday against Alabama. If you’re going to cost your team 15 yards, this is the way to do it.For those who haven’t seen the play, Gaulden darted into the endzone following the interception return and, from point-blank range, gave the Alabama student section the middle finger -- with both hands. It had to be an especially gratifying moment.Unfortunately, especially gratifying moments can have their consequences and Gaulden said he realized his mistake as soon as he got back to the UT sideline.
