I am happy for Dooley, that he is able to bounce back emotionally. I wish him well.

The Kentucky game was not "inexcusable" It is hard find a defence to stop a wide receiver playing QB and running the same 5 plays over and over.

Hahahaha, great dry humor.

seven you still haven't told us where you were hiding when Louisville beat the mildcats. Where were you coward?

I made several comments after the Louisville loss. Louisville is the number 3 team in the country and Kentucky is rebuilding after cutting down the nets last year.

Perhaps you are just sore that Tennessee is at the bottom, not playing in a Bowl and there is no sign of improvement any time soon. Too bad, so sad trollboy

Dooley was given too much time. He should have been relieved of his duties after getting beaten by Kentucky in a must win game in 2011 and not even allowed to ride the bus to the airport. Losing to Kentucky was inexcusable, sorriest team and fans in college football.

Why thank you, orangehead, for continuing to keep alive the exalted name of Kentucky within this New Year of 2013, here upon the GoVolsXtra fan board !!

Yes, indeed. Well said Titles!!

How come this stupid fan board won't let me type the word 'indeed' with a 'y' or an 'ie' on the end!?!

Not a Vandy fan, but when was the last time the Vols won 9 games in a season?

2007 and the Vols have done it many times more than once in 97 years

Wrong, CDD is an excellent attorney..Just look at his buyout as proof.

no you didn't scum bag. you made one comment about ky couldn't hit free throws. you were hiding like a little baby girl

Always liked CDD's sound bites. I think he would make an excellent TV football announcer/analyst. Only issue would be Dennis Miller like humor that would fly over too many heads.

We Bama fans loved Dooley. What a nice guy. We wish him all the luck in the world.

One can see Volburro still mad that chuckie ain't comin to Knox? Just heard him on TV calling the South Carolina / Michigan game. Sure would have been nice to see him wearing orange pants next year!

Peace

not mad at all. If he came fine. he didn't so I'll support CBJ. just hate trolling, instigating pos like you

in response to SevenT:

Dooley was not given enough time to get it done in Knoxville. If they would have given him 5 years they would have won a few more games. I don't know why they turned on him so fast?

Just Saying

Your right, Dooley would have won a few more games if he would have been given a few more years. Lets all do our best to forget Dooley, he is a loser!

pos? I have read enough anti-Cal / anti-KY trash on this site to deserve "trolling"......CBJ ain't FULMER, he will not pull in the recruits.

in response to BluezVol:

Sal was to Dooley what D. Clawson was to Fulmer. If Dooley had the Chief as his DC, we'd be watching UT play in a bowl game right now.

As much as I liked Chief, ask LSU about the Mustang package used yesterday....

Hate on him however you will, but I am glad he is dealing with this well. All the best to him. Queue 5 mil buyout comments making it easier in 5,4,3,2,1............

Like you said, you read the anti/calamari, anti/ky comments on this site. goVOLSxtra, not TROLLSrus. Go to your own site scum bag

AncientVolFan writes:

I haven't kept close touch, but $5 million buyout for Dooley and $6 million buyout for Fulmer? Is that correct?
My happiest football moment recently is watching Lane Kiffen outcoach a 6&6 Georgia Tech team. Kudoes to Kiffen for such great coaching. TIC.

Bwahahaha. Talk about delusional. No one flocks anywhere and no one is logging on to read your illiterate nonsense, that's for sure.

You're a nasty troll--the lowest form of human being there is. People actually come on to these sites to read articles and keep up with their favorite team--usually, their Alma Mater. They would also like to have conversations about relevant issues regarding the team they love.

Unfortunately, the site has been hijacked by bottom feeding losers--like you and your buddies--who have nothing else to do with their time but sit and swill PBR and try and get a rise out of the fans. What else you got to do?

My reading of posts and posting days are over until KNS finds a way to handle slimeballs like you. It's just not worth it to me.

Maybe some of the other true Vol lovers on this site feel the same way.

in response to rockytopwestone:

He absolutely should have been fired after the Kentucky game last year. We went the whole season and the team got better at nothing ! One whole season wasted. Yet people get on here and say stupid stuff like if he hadn`t changed the defence we could be 9 and 3. Yea and we would still have a idiot for a head coach !

Is it ironic you say people post 'stupid stuff' and misspell defence(it's defense by the way) in the same sentence? I'm not at all arguing your post because I'm one million percent behind the idea of gettin rid of Dooley after the kentucky loss last season

Clay Travis is the most arrogant, disrespectful guy I've ever heard on talk radio, and I hope Dooley puts him in his place, when ever possible.

smokies_old_soul writes:

i have no interest in piling on Coach Dooley, but these "tweets" are just ridiculous. poking fun at yourself and your losing team right after losing the job of a lifetime just makes the guy look more pathetic than he already did. starting to be sincerely concerned if the guy doesn't have a few screws loose.

Yeah, I don't "winning a few more games" should be the number one goal of one of the all time great college football programs.

Who knows, by Year 10, Dooley may have gotten an Independence Bowl win. You and about 8 other delusional Vol fans would have been around to see it.

There was no guarantee in his contract about having five years to turn the program around. If there was, there would have been no buyout. Just another in a long line of excuses and misinformation from people who supported Dooley more than the program they claim to support.

in response to 88volgrad:

I almost feel sorry for the Dooley bashers. It must be tough for you crybabies going through life with nothing to show for it. I'm quite sure Derek Dooley could trounce the whole lot of you at any battle of the wits. Of course, the vast majority of you would be too cowardly to show up.

Yes, this is an original train of thought.

Insult someone's intelligence because they don't fall lock step in line with the rest of the sheep such as yourself.

What's next, are you going to challenge some poster to a throw down at Gate 21?

You want to discuss a battle of wits, try using some yourself and come up with an argument for Dooley that doesn't invoke the same tired, boring message board tactics that have been used millions of times over.

Alas, good sound bites do not a good coach make.

in response to Tau_of_Tennessee:

Most Vol fans I know think highly of Coach Dooley and sincerely wish him success in the future, unless he is lined up against the Vols.

Most Vol fans I know will remember his failure to attend a single HS football game in his three years as coach.

They will also remember his (and staff's) failure to establish relationships with HS coaches throughout Tennessee and adjoining recruiting territories.

I liked the orange pants and that about covers it.

murrayvol writes:

in response to emailnodata:

With any defense at all, UT wins 9-10 games this season.

His biggest mistakes, in my book are in NOT hiring seasoned offensive and defensive coordinators.

His biggest mistake was not continuing as a "gopher" for Nick Saban.

in response to VOLtage:

I would be jovial on twitter also if I had 5 new million dollars in my bank account.

Thanks Mikey for negotiating such a lucrative contract with an unproven coach. Far beyond what virtually all Top 25 coaches could claim after 3 years on the job.

And thanks Dave for not accepting his resignation after the Kentucky game in 2011. Brilliante!

You can't stop Travis. You can only hope to contain him.

God help us if he ever gets a TV gig.

His name is his age. He was probably at a senior citizens center playing checkers.

Rommel : A man that understood tactics but got no real help from Berlin. Hmm, I might see where this could go but in CDD's particular case, maybe someone at the top was right, unlike Rommel's boss, the little corporal, who thankfully was clueless as to how to field a football team...

You must not have seen the ending in the LSU and Clemson game last night? Same old chief and his crazy prevent defense, he can always find a way to lose a game. He did it at UT and still is doing it at LSU. Miles is just as bad, three passing plays when they had the chance to end the game. If I remember they had second and three and passed the ball twice, who called those plays? Remember the Alabama game, they both found a way to lose.

John Chavis is an excellent D-coordinator. Even great football coaches lose a ballgame every now and then. No such thing as a coach who wins them all.

Nothing but top 10 national finishes and double digit winning seasons at LSU since Chavis got there. His defenses there average giving up less than 18 points a game playing SEC schedules. That's why he will make over a million a year as an assistant next year. LSU is going to try and keep him there-and happy.

I wonder if you are as critical about your own performance as you are some of the best coaches in football. If so, you would have to be the most miserable person ever. Or, the only guy since Jesus who never makes mistakes.
