i flat-out amazes me that people are second guessing that man. after all he's done for their program and in a season in which they're a shoe-in to go to a BCS bowl game and finish in the top five. the governor, of all people. what a LOSER. well put, john. agreed w/ every word.

@John at MrSEC @All_Vol_Yall
i hear you. i'm actually a fairly well known blogger / writer in a totally different, non-sports-related field. i, too, have monetized a blog before and b/c of that, i now get paid to write for sites w/ huge FB / twitter followings -- one of them, over 1.2 million FB. b/c of all that, i, too, get HAMMERED from time to time. and you're right. it's no fun at all. but from one guy on a smaller scale to you, the guy on a bigger scale, i guess i'm just saying what you already know: you talk back to those fools and you've already given them too much power. anyway, keep up the great work, John. i'm a longtime reader. what a great thing you have going on here.
(FWIW, my freelance gigs prohibit me from using my real name on the sports blog i just started -- which is why you don't see my real name here -- as i don't want what i'm doing there to conflict w/ the "brand" behind my paid writing since the new blog sometimes skews a bit profane...i only say that b/c i didn't want you to think i was just another anonymous internet tough guy over here...)
1 year, 4 months ago on Dooley Denies Buyout Claim; "I'd Be A Real Dumbass To Do That"
and, YES, by the way. i'm totally w/ Elvis on this one. it's so utterly believable it's a joke. in fact, just the way Dooley reacted made me believe it all the more. he sounded hurt when he asked "who are the sources?" so i believe that (a) it happened (b) the school understood at that time he was, in all likelihood, not our guy and (c) this guy's a dead-man walking. he's most def in way, way, way over his head. i genuinely believe that coach is too petty of an individual to negotiate the type of dynamics one must negotiate to have success in coaching. at any size school...
two things -- first, i def thought he was taking a shot at you. in fact, i thought it was weird that he claimed he'd never heard of you. it'd seem to me that you'd def be someone he'd know. but second, why do you come back against the haters? no question you're good at what you do. no question you're all over the place -- TV, radio, etc... but why rattle off these facts? because when you do, it's like you're kinda wearing your accomplishments like a cheap cologne, which, paradoxically, gives the folks who think you're arrogant, more ammo. if i were you, i'd just move on. just my two cents.
