I was hoping to be critical of something John but you left me nothing. Darn! Just kidding.

@badbadhoggie we don't need him. He leaves a mess everywhere he goes. Championships aren't worth hiring the likes of Petrino.
2 years, 5 months ago on The Dooley Debate Rages At UT; Sources Claim He Talked Buyout Last Year
@VolTN @WillieT If you can't be a success at Florida with all that talent than somethings wrong. I'll give you Florida's defense but that offense is all Driscoll. Other than that I'm not impressed. Other than that I'm not sold on Kirby Smart. Like I said he hasn't done anything to show me that he deserves the opportunity to be the head coach at TN. Let's say he does become HC if we're not contending for SEC Championships in three years do we fire him. This is a fickle arrogant, narcissistic fanbase. They're living in the 90's. That time has passed. I think DD should have four years.
@HoustonVol Couldn't have said it any better myself. I think you're spot on. To add I believe Dooley has laid a good foundation of players on this team and added depth that will pay off in the long run. If he adds some running backs and quality corners, safeties, this team will be far more competitive. Even Hart said in an interview that he didn't realize how bad it was at Tenn. I believe that, I think it's alot worse than the fans realize and I truly believe Dooley is on the right track.
So who do we believe? John Pennington who says sources told him DD wanted a buyout or DD who says that it never happened and is "absurd". Who to believe?
@VolTN @WillieT I don't see how Kirby is a better hire when he's never coached. He doesn't have a record. Regardless of Dooley's record at this point I'll take him over a current coordinator who has no equity.
@WillieT If Hart brings in Kirby Smart instead of a big time Head Coach this fanbase will revolt. There is no way you can replace DD with an assistant coach who has never been a head coach. It's insane.
I understand Spurrier was a big named coach, it still took time to recruit quality and depth. He now has it. Look, I'm not sure what to think now because I want Dooley to succeed. I think TN fans want championships like they want their food, fast and right now. This fan base is arrogant and borderline narcissistic and the media is feeding off of it. Hell this environment is making them money. Why not stoke the fire. I've always believed that you can fight through adversity and overcome if you keep pushing and keep grinding. I believe this team can do that and this coaching staff can do that.
I don't know for some reason I'm behind Coach. I feel this program in this state is more of a four year job. Let him have a full class and see what happens. Like you said John if you fire him after three and the next coach considering the job may think twice. I know the fan base is important but it seems to me that the media and fanbase are making the decisions. I don't like it.
People that make scaredy cat comments are usually the ones who never played a sport or rode the bench. Then they become journalists because they saw alot from the bench.

@RonnieG Yeah Bama's gonna be mad because of what Ainge said on a radio show. Ok.
@GaryParrishCBS Former AL QB was on @ErikAinge3 show today and agreed with Ainge about going after a dinged up player, part of the game #GBO: You mean they really do that in football?
Classless. He's a radio personality. It's what he does. If Bama needed Erik Ainge for motivation than something's wrong. Much to do about nothing except for the 100 or so emails sent by BAMA fans wanting him fired. Really?
@John at MrSEC @Dennyzzzzz @kdlewis04
Let me get this straight @Denny, I should be banned because I voiced an opinion in the comment section? It's the comment section. I may be wrong with my opinion but to suggest that a person should be banned is a bit over the top. I read the sight and I comment in the comment section. Do I think it's a bit over opinionated at times? Yes and theres a section where I am able to say something and John responds if he believes I am wrong. Guess what? I was wrong, sort of. But I will not stop reading Mr Sec and I would like to think that in this country we don't get banned for commenting. I don't believe that I personally degraded or attacked you or threatened you in any way to warrant someone suggesting that I be banned. Really? It's an opinion.

Interesting you left out that Dye still supports Chizik and the coaches in the program. Amazing what you can do with quotes when you leave some things about to make them say what you want.
Why would they black out the boosters name if he violated something like this. Seems to me we should know his name. Is this some privacy issue?

2 years, 7 months ago on UT QB Bray Heading To Court For “Hot Dogging” On Jet Ski
Come on John, Dooley did not make light of the incident he was punished accordingly. He didn't punish him to your satisfaction because you don't know what type of punishment he was given. The punishment wasn't tangible enough for you. It's unbelievable that the media is acting like this young man committed a major felony. If I didn't know any better I would have thought he was charged with manslaughter. Is he juvenile? Yes. Is this the worst conduct to have hit the program. Uh, No. If we win the east this is a non subject. It's a slow period for the program, we're down right now and anything is news. This is unbelievable the judgment of people.
It absolutely amazes me the over analyzing of this incident. I'll give you the dumb decision making but to say that this will cost Dooley his job? There are people every day who get DUI's, traffic tickets, bar fights whatever and yet their work or job is not affected. I'm not saying for everybody but these juvenile incidents do not make 2+2 =4. This doesn't mean he can't be the leader of this team or players will no longer respect him or in the 4th quarter of a game the jet ski incident will come back to haunt him. I think you're over analyzing this situation because that's your makeup. Every little thing means something to you John, I get it that's what you do and I enjoy watching on television or reading your opinions. But I'm sorry I don't one thing has anything to do with the other in every situation. Not that it means anything but when I was Tyler's age I was in charge of half a million dollar equipment and a squad leader in the military. In the evening I was an idiot but when it came to my job as a soldier I did it to the best of my abilities. I'm just saying that I don't thing you can always draw a deductive conclusion because of a few juvenile incidents. Yes he's the quarterback of TN and should set the example and yes he's under a microscope but you seem to have that microscope set on 1000x. People need to come off their moral high horses it coming across like an agenda. Anyway just an opinion John and I respect it but I can't agree with it. You're a good journalist and I hope you take this as a personal attack I know alot of people do I just disagree.
