Fat Man TD? Almost

GAINESVILLE -- Gators nose tackle Darius ‘Bear’ Cummings fantasized of a day when CBS announcer  -- and resident chortle expert -- Verne Lundquist would call his name in a primetime game.

On Saturday, Cummings’ dream came true, and afterwards he couldn't stop smiling.

In the second quarter of UF's 31-17 win over Tennessee, the redshirt junior picked of a Nathan Peterman whiff pass and rumbled 30 yards until either A) tripping himself and running out of gas or B) teammate Dominique Easley accidentally tackling him.

During the postgame celebration, coach Will Muschamp said, “I just told them in the locker room after the game I don’t know who looks worse: me jogging on campus or Darius returning that pick. I was a lot happier to watch him than watch me run.”
