Some people will do ANYTHING to get someone fired, and this is a sad and pathetic case of that. Don't act like you didn't tell Jimmy Hyams, someone who has had a relationship with this site, to ask Dooley that question to, A. get your pathetic little website in the news and, B. to get a response like this. It's so blatantly obvious you want to get this coach fired and will do just about anything to get to that point. It's just sad. And when he goes and tells the truth about not knowing about your sorry little conglomerate of message board rumors, you go and take cheap shots at him on your way out the door. So he doesn't read the site, how is that taking a shot at it? Not everybody in the world reads your website... SHOCKING!
Here's hoping that if you do get your wish and Dooley gets the axe, he does everything in his power to get your sorry excuse of a webpage shut down forever.

Well, since it's ok by you, then I guess UT will approve of it. By all means I hope they consulted you first.

Yeah, commitments in April are directly tied to job security issues. Genius.

@90vol Investigative reporting and this site don't go together. It's all about yellow journalism around here.

@John at MrSEC He never EVER "repeatedly hammered home character as one of his main recruiting points". That didn't happen.
@chrismd Pennington doesn't work like that... he jumps to conclusions like all the other trash media in Knoxville just to form negative opinions about UT's program. It's one of the main reasons Dooley doesn't give most Knoxville media the time of day.
"MrSEC" doesn't care to point out the positives that Dooley has done cleaning up the program, he is a Finebaum-wannabe and tries to stir up the pot instead of trying real journalism.
When exactly did Dooley beat down the door about character? I can remember a couple of occurrences, but certainly not to the extent that you claim in this b.s. piece. Every coach out there emphasizes character to a certain degree, and Dooley did so as well, but he definitely didn't do it to the level that you seem to think.
I know you love any chance to critize Dooley and the UT program in general, and I know you can't come up with your own material so you piggyback off KNS trash like John Adams, so this doesn't surprise me.. but it really is getting old.
Unbelievable. Turmoil? Guys are leaving for other jobs, it happens at every single school, but becuase you hate Tennessee (and prove it with every column you write about them), staff turnover is now considered turmoil. You and this little site you run (which is nothing but biased opinion and message-board rumors) are pathetic. It's a shame you live in Knoxville because you give that city a bad name.
1 year, 4 months ago on Checkmate: Bama's Saban Takes Thompson Back From UT's Dooley
Hahaha, this site is just becoming laughable. More ridiculous nonsense about Tennessee. The sky is falling!!
1. How has Tennessee's recruiting class suffered because of this? Let's see who we've lost: Kenneth Crawley (grade issues, can't even visit schools since he can't pass ACT/SAT), Khalid Henderson (didn't grow as expected to play LB after committed). Boy, big losses there.
I'm so sick of you and other people around Knoxville trying to completely bring down that university's athletic program. It has been going on for way too long and I will call every single one out until it stops. This "negative perception" crap is just writers putting things out on twitter and letting it snowball, nothing more.
What assistant coaches that UT has tried to lure have been scared off because of Dooley's job security, by the way, which is brought on by media, nothing more? Name one please. You, nor your immaculate source, Jimmy Hyams, can either. You and your site are pathetic.

If this happened at Tennessee, Dooley would be bashed to the heavens and back. Ridiculous.

Also, DaRick Rogers is still with the team and in no sort of doghouse, another over-sensationalized subject.
1 year, 4 months ago on Panic On Rocky Top; Dooley Responds
Panic? What panic? You've already claimed turmoil exists on the team, now panic? Another poster mentioned an axe to grind, and that is becoming more and more obvious each day you write a negative article on this team, coach and program. Here's what's really happened since the end of the season:
1. A coordinator has left to go back to his home turf, happens all the time in this conference and across the country.
2. 3 assistants have left to either go back home or with previous coaches, again, happens all the time.
3. A player has transferred, didn't get his way instantly before having a dialogue with the coach, now has his way and is on record as saying Dooley is a great guy. A subject that got blown way out of proportion before all facts were there, imagine that on here.
That's what's really happened, but on this site, the writer tries to create a negative perception of the program because he doesn't like the coach, university or some other bogus reason and deserves to be called out for it, which I will continue to do as long as he chooses to act like this.
Also, DaRick Rogers is still with the team and in no sort of doghouse, Dooley said so today. Another over-sensationalized subject on this site.
Panic? What panic? What exactly has happened since the end of the season to cause so much panic? The only panic is from a ton of rumors and speculation (most of it false) from the media, including this site, which goes out of its way to create the "drama" that Dooley referenced today.
Here's what has happened since the end of the season: 1. A coordinator has left to go back to his home area. Happens at schools across the country and has occurrred at other SEC schools.2. 3 assistants have left to pursue opportunities closer to home base, again, happens across the country.3. A player has transferred, got upset when he didn't get his way before having a dialogue with the coach, and now has a full release. Should've been a non-story but it is what it is, and now it's over.
That's it. All of this is stuff that happens at every single school in the conference, but because the writer here indeed does have an axe to grind with the university, he makes much more big of a deal than it actually is and creates a false perception about the program. It's ridiculous and this site deserves to be called out on it.
Another thing to remember about the whole situation: going back to Arnett's recruitment, he said himself that his father wasn't a factor in his decision, and he was sick then. He even said he and his father weren't that close. So, it's becoming more obvious he's just not happy and using his father's sickness to get back home, and now making UT look bad.
I love writers who overreact to everything, like the one on this site.
1 year, 4 months ago on PR Bungle: Dooley Won't Give Vol WR Arnett A Free Pass To Transfer
Dooley did meet in person with Arnett, he even went to the Arnett household to see his parents while on a recruiting trip in Michigan. Dooley tried to accommodate Arnett, and instead, Arnett got greedy and tried to manipulate the situation.
@volroadwarrior well said.
Wow, here's a surprise, you writing an anti-Dooley piece. What a shocker, doesn't this get old?
1. If Arnett's decision was based soley on him wanting to be close to his dad (which he claims it is), why does it matter to him if he can't go to Michigan or MSU? That raises red flags and Dooley knows that. He's smarter than you, and most of us.
2. Dooley is setting a standard. Arnett signed a binding contract with UT and now he wants out of it one year in. That tells everyone "hey, if you don't like it here, no worries, we'll let you out of here for free". Wrong message to send.
3. Arnett is getting what he wants, he's getting his release. Why make a stink out of it and send ESPN an email complaining? That screams of a spoiled kid who isn't getting his way and wants to make a public outcry about it. Take your release, go be with your sick dad and be happy about it.
Also, UT goes up against Michigan and MSU on the recruiting trail every single year, as was stated in the statement from UT. It's not just about on-field competition, yet you conveniently left that out. Big surprise there.
As for the Brandon Warren situtation, he is from Knoxville, and UT is the only FBS school in the Knoxville area. He had one choice to play FBS level football near his sick parent. Not the case with Arnett. I guess you just happened to forget that too.
