Joe Adams is like everyone else. He enjoys watching his highlights on Sports Center. He was ready to get back to his couch to check out his latest big play after Arkansas rolled over Tennessee.
"I like to watch," he said. "I do like it. I have to admit."
The play landed as the number one spot on ESPN's Sportscenter Top 10 plays of the day while teammate's Jarius Wright's circus catch was number two.
There was some fun after he juked and dodged about half of the Volunteer punt coverage team.
"That might rank up there pretty high," Adams said on where it might fit on his own personal list of greatest plays.
"I caught it and a guy was in my face, so I went backwards and made him miss. Then I saw about five guys when I went that way. So I came back the other way."
Adams admitted he tries to come up with just that kind of a run for himself when he plays the "NCAA video game. I try to make up a new move on the game, then try to bring them to the game."
Told he broke five tackles, Adams said, "I thought maybe three. I'll go home, watch and see for myself."
Offensive coordinator Garrick McGee asked to coach the punt returners a couple of seasons ago when Adams began to work as the specialist.
"I've seen some pretty good ones by Joe," McGee said. "Joe is pretty special, this one was pretty special. That was a reverse pivot and an explosion. It was right on our sideline and you could see what he saw open on the sideline.
"I've seen him make all kinds of plays and I've seen good ones by others players during the years. But that one was pretty special."
Adams said he's not done. In fact, that's what he has been saying since last winter.
"I could have gone on to the (NFL) after last year, but I didn't like the way last year finished," he said. "That's why I came back. We have to finish this better than last year. That's why I came back."
Adams Can't Wait to Watch
