Sorry, Smoky's gotta stick his nose in here. Here's the thing you and your fellow retards don't get, won't get and will never ever understand. I'm gonna type slowly so pay close attention. Ready? Look at me when I'm talking to you. We didn't hire Dooley. Actualy, we had no involvement in the hiring process at all. No one from the University of Tennessee contacted any of us to ask our opinion. We didn't have a choice or a say into any of the decisions that were made concerning UT athletics. Once Dooley was announced as the next head football coach, we got behind him and supported him. Why? Because he was our coach, like him or not. So, we did just that. We weren't duped. Most of the really smart fans on here saw early on certain things that just didn't smell right, but continued to support the efforts of coach. Fast forward to the present. Now we have Coach Butch. He brings a lot to the table and up to this point, it all smells good. We're gonna support Coach Butch, too and unlike you, we'll go to the games and wear our Orange with pride. I wear more Orange than anything else. So, just keep on bustin our chops if it makes you feel good. You're not a fan and you continue to prove that.

The Vols were going to go 5-7 in 2012 no matter what I thought or wanted.

They were never going to 'do better' as long as Dooley was the coach.

Dooley's overall record as head coach was 32-41. He was never going to compete in the SEC.

And I think also that Bray's antics and indiscipline (along with 7 coaches bolting all at once) ensured that Dooley can't hired for heach coach at the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Yes, of course I disagreed with Dooley's remaining the head coach. I don't just blindly accept that someone -should- have power just because they -do- have power. Dooley had a fair trial as head coach. He couldn't hack it. The longer he was the coach, the worse the team performed.

I guess everyone understands that the process by which Coach Dooley leaves the employ of the University of Tennessee has begun.

We will have what is essentially a new staff this year, with all the problems that attend that. We'll have the same micromanaging, incompetent, head coach. The team won't do well; we'll be lucky to win any SEC games.

By this time next year, Derek Dooley will be playing golf with Mike Hamilton. After all, they can bond over the fact that they both helped wreck the UT football program.

Good post, I think you may have touched on something important. The urgency being placed on CDD by alumni/media may have forced CDD to recruit questionable character recruits like DaRick and Bonner (nothing has happened with Bonner yet) to speed up this process and win ASAP..The real problem stems from CDD will never be allowed to take his time like Major's did, and he must win by year 3 because he wasn't UT's first choice..I think that's about as plain and simple as it can be explained..I really believe he gets it done, but if he doesn't UT better be prepared to pay at least 5 million a year to get a WOW hire or attrition will set them back even further."

Bray never got suspended. He acted like 80% of the kids in college do. Bray didn't get drafted because he never developed from his freshman season to his junior year. He continued to make mistakes that should have been coached out of him but weren't. I feel for Bray and worry that incidents like his reflect poorly on UT and how they handle and develop their talent. If you don't think other schools will use that against us your fools. I love Jones but if I am a coach at another school I think its easy to point out that maybe this coach can coach and maybe he can't. If you come here you know what your getting. Its unfortunate but as some previous posters have noted, Dooley is probably the worst coach in UT history and we may pay a continued price for that.

Bray was able to get into a "post arrest diversion" program after he damaged that one student's car with beer bottles and golf balls. Too bad he wasn't made to pay the piper.

in response to MR_VOL:

I am in full agreement.

I was at that game, and I can honestly say it was the absolute worst coached UT football game I have ever seen. The team certainly was not prepared and had only two offensive plays being “pound that rock” and “hail-mary.” “Third and Chavis” could not, would not, or simply did not know how to make an adjustment while “7 Points Sanders” [and Fulmer] tried and tried to pound that rock, but unfortunately on that night ran into a rock that simply would not bust.

I honestly believe UT [coaches and players] felt by simply showing up, LSU would just roll over and surrender. There was as much disbelief in the coaches eyes as in the players eyes. Once the game was over, you could cut the disappointment with a knife.

If I had to specifically pin-point the exact time when UT football started to decline, I would, without hesitation, say this game.

Well, UT was ahead in that game as I recall 17-10 and had knocked out both the LSU QB Davie and best RB Toefield. There were two bad UT fumbles in the second half and no adjustments made for the running QB who replaced QB Davie.

Recall that this was the week after a very emotional defeat of UF 34-32 -- Spurrier's last game at Florida Field as it turned out.

1. I have often said that Bray might do fine with some decent coaching.

The Vols were an idiotic interception away from defeating eventual national champion LSU in 2007. Fulmer was -not- done with winnnig when he was fired, and he had a pretty good class inbound when Hammy panicked and pulled the plug.

Hamilton's decisons contributed much more to UT's demise than CPF's did. And I mean while CPF was still the coach.

After that for Hammy, it almost seemed as if "Whom the Gods would destroy they first make mad."

They have a whole month in August to find out who wants to hit April is about learning where to be when so you actually CAN hit somebody when the lights go on. This is a complete waste of time.

Not really.

It reminds the players what the point of the exercise is, helps bind them into a team, sets the tone for summer workouts and hopefully plants some concepts into their brain housing groupps.

Imperative really.

The Steelers' best RB was injured much of last year, as was one of the key defenders. And I don't think you can show that Ben criticised his protection. He did extend a lot of plays successfully. Other plays he didn't. If that sort of play kept Pottsburgh out of the playoffs is hard to say.

I think Bray is a total wild card. One thing that stands out to me was how often the camera would catch him with looks of disgust on his face at the game decisions by Dooley and staff that came his way.

Given a real coach and not a sham, he might do just fine.

Holding the ball for 6-7 seconds is a good thing when you can extend the play. Roethlisberger excells at that. Plus his play (if not his off-field bahavior) is exactly in the mold the Steelers want and have come to expect. Marriage seems to have settled him down some.

He is a very important cog in the Steeler machine.

Sounds like a break for Auburn. Their scandal - their latest scandal - develops and festers while the NCAA enforcement mechanism is in disarray.
