Coach Derek Dooley has had his hands full this year, motivating a bunch of young, often over-matched, men through a harrowing schedule. It’s been a remarkably clean season (remember all the arrests and scandals from the previous regimes?), and the players seemed to turn a corner at the end of the Vanderbilt game, getting their swagger on. Now we’ll see if their confidence carries them through the Kentucky game Saturday and into a post-season bowl.
Meanwhile, Dooley, formerly a practicing attorney, has proven to be quite the renaissance man. We’ve seen him talk about the Pythagorean Theorem, washing out the body’s nether regions with rags, comparing the Vols to the Germans during World War II, and explaining something about force equaling mass times acceleration.
With such eclectic knowledge, you have to wonder what this man could do if he weren’t a coach (or an attorney).
