in re: dooley

 

he had one winning season out of three in the bush leagues.  4-8 at la. tech when mike hamilton, the vol a.d. snatched him up and gave him a five million dollar buyout/payout.  three years later, he's still looking hard for his first winning season in knoxville.  meanwhile, la. tech is 5-1, ranked, and came within a hair of beating a&m, a ranked team.  they wouldn't want him back; serious vol fans don't want him to stay.  he's the athletic equivalent of george w. bush.

 @jtboyd310  @sojourner if you want to believe that a coach who is still looking for his second winning season after six years as a h.c. is going to lead the vols back to glory, be my guest.  knock yourself out.  i won't respond further (he who argues with a fool is a bigger one).

three fourths of the current d1 coaches would be preferable to the guy with the famous last name.  there, that satisfy you?  while we're passing questions, tell me what other program had dooley on their short list?  who wants him now?  when does he turn into the second coming of general neyland?

a 4-8 final season is not convincing proof that dooley "...left the program in a lot better shape than he found it."   neither is stringing together 4 or 5 cupcake wins iced with vandy and kentucky.  fact:  this is his sixth season as a head coach (three in the bush leagues) and he's still looking for his second winning season.  dooley is a case study in athletic director incompetence.  hamilton (the word "desperate" was correctly used) couldn't get the serious coaches to return his calls.  so the vols ended up with this stiff.  to top it off, he gave him a seven million dollar buyout!!!--dooley! for gawd's sake!  if his name was on anybody's short list, i've yet to hear about it. sour grapes?  dykes is 5-0; dooley was 4-8.  that's typical of the doolaid drinkers in k-ville.

hmm.  what's his graduation rate?  what happens to the recruits who don't end up cashing nba paychecks?  how many could pass a ged final?

 

intercollegiate basketball is a farce.

said it before and i'll say it again:  mediocrity would be an achievement for dooley.  he couldn't get there in the bush leagues; he sure as hell ain't gonna get there in the sec.  this program is cursed as long as there is any vestige of mike hamilton's seminal incompetence.
