“If you’d have told me Coach (Phillip) Fulmer would have gotten fired and then this coach, that coach, this strength coach, that position coach, I probably wouldn’t have came here because I knew it would have been a dysfunctional setup, an unstable program… It was a tough situation. It was a roller-coaster ride.”“Guys kind of shut it down (against Kentucky). All the seniors, we cared. We cared more than a lot of those guys out there. And that’s expected, but we weren’t getting it back. Those guys have next year to look forward to. We don’t. My career is over at UT.”“Coach Dooley is a very critical guy. He’s critical of his players and coaches. It’s criticism and you’ve got to take it in. Guys just got to have thick skin with Coach Dooley. He’s going to speak his mind. Every minute of the day, every moment, if he’s got an opinion, he’s going to tell you. That’s just the type of guy he is.”
Try this on for size: During the week of the Vandy game, Bray was asked in front of several upperclassmen by a member of the training staff if he completed a cursory workout exercise to which Bray shot back in the earshot of all ‘No. Not really. And I’m not going to do it. Why should I? Besides we’re only going to a shitty bowl game anyway.’ Sources tell me that the upperclassmen who heard this exchange were so incensed that they went to Derek Dooley who shrugged it off and did nothing about it. Another source told me that ‘Dooley shrugs several things off including the way Rogers back talks to everybody he possibly can.’ (More on this later).On Rogers: Countless sources paint a picture of a guy who truly is allowed to operate in his own little world with little repercussion. Multiple sources say he’s constantly cussing and belittling Charlie Baggett his position coach with impunity. Say nothing of the way he talks to fellow wide receivers, other team members and support staff personnel. Jayson Swain and Wes Rucker were talking about him shouting at Baggett on the sidelines during the Kentucky game. I understand this goes on all the time. Not a one-time thing, but another day at the office. ‘This guy mouths off to anyone he can. If you got him on the show he would brag about it to ya. He doesn’t care.’
I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.
Maybe in response to all of this, some reporter guy was on Finebaum yesterday and he painted a picture as dire as you can imagine regarding morale inside the program and among boosters.Buyout this year or next year is 5 mil so they don't save anything financially but can you have a decent program if you have 4 coaches in 4 years?
Sometimes a complete scuttling of a project has to happen in order for there to be a full and complete recovery. If Dooley isn't the right man for the job, they should get him out of there and replace him with someone who can and will do the job. Either way, it's a shitty situation, though, to be sure. I'm SOOOO glad we didn't have to go through this when Hootie left. It almost happened, but thankfully it didn't. We got our guy and he was the guy we needed. How fortunate we were. Seriously.
They need someone in the people helpin business or somebody competent in big boy football. Their decline helps us so fuck em and feed em fish heads.
Dooley is their Heath. They still have to suffer through a Pelphrey.
was Kiffin Altman?
They need Houston Nutt. If Tyler Bray said that kind of stuff on his watch, those seniors would have performed a Code Red on his ass before you could say "Mr. Interception King".
The morale: don't EVER hire a successful coaches son, or one who coached at a deaf school.
Bray was bitching and moaning the entire game against us. Seems like a whinny bitch...
What, from the sideline?
Da'Rick?Is that "Derrick" or is that "Da Rick"? You know, like "Da Rick B."?
So who was Kiffen?
