Dooley's Press Conference and the 24 Hour News Cycle

I once heard Jonathan Stewart say in an interview that ‘the 24 hour news cycle is really only built for events like 9/11’. During all other times the 24 hour news cycle is largely unnecessary. When...

Pat Forde thinks Tennessee will be cleared of all allegations

"If I were the president at Tennessee, the man in charge of an athletic department that has hemorrhaged credibility at an alarming rate in recent years would need a Committee on Infractions miracle to keep his job. Nothing short of an exoneration of both programs would be enough to spare Hamilton — and chances of that happening are even smaller than the chances that Tennessee plays in the next BCS championship game." Excellent, we're golden!

Devrin Young already sounding like Dooley: Volquest Monday commitment roundup (Free)

Tennessee coach Derek Dooley has been so frustrated with Tennessee's punt return game this year. He's went without a returnman at times over the last few games and hinted he may go without anyone back to field punts next Saturday when Kentucky rolls into town. Young knows his skills are set up to blossom in that position, but he isn't putting the cart before the horse. "It's definitely an opportunity," Young said. "Everyone is expecting me to change the special teams game. I keep telling myself to focus on execution and not the end result. I know it will happen, but everyone has to be on the same page and I just have to work on doing the little things to make the big things happen on the field."

Florida players tell Vincent Dallas they're unhappy in Gainesville

It appears Dallas’ trip to Florida helped solidify UT as his top school. Dallas said he asked several of the younger Florida players if they were happy with their decision to attend Florida. The reports weren’t positive. "They were just saying they aren’t happy and they don’t think Florida is the right place for them," Dallas said.

"We're not singing the blues here. You all do understand that? I'm not saying, 'Oh, poor me!' I'm happy to be here. I'd rather be here with 72 than about anywhere else." That's your coach, Vol fans. Your coach who doesn't have to be told to read General Neyland's game maxims. Your coach who believes in those game maxims, who believes in rebuilding Tennessee from the ground up. My bet is that Derek Dooley and these Vols will put on more steam when the going gets tough. It will be interesting to see if everyone who loves Tennessee football will be able to say the same.
