Les Miles, Nick Saban and Mark Richt should be ashamed. They flaunt decisive wins over rival schools and ritzy bowl projections in their respective programs to gain the favor of the media, but their selfishness comes at the cost of the players.
Heck each of those coaches teams were favored to win those rivalry games anyhow. So why make a big deal about winning a game you were supposed to win?
Well here is a bit of horn tooting in support of Coach Derek Dooley. Through proxy, he delivered a stinging blow to the local drive-by-media and traitorous fans Saturday afternoon, as well as a heartbreaking 37-17 win over the Wildcats of Kentucky.
The Vols won that game to honor one of the finest coaches to don orange. He had to step away from the game to allow the media to focus on him and not the players. Essentially tossing himself on to a grenade. What a leader!
Anyone with any kind of football IQ could see that Dooley had the Tennessee Program poised to leap from the precipice. He just needed more time.
