Chris Low interviews UT’s Rogers


(Photoshop by Scott)

Low’s interview with Da’Rick “Pretty Boy” Rogers was absolutely professional and an moving tribute to others in the field of sports journalism. It will also teach the people at Tennessee in the Sports Information Department to stop sending Vol ‘Homer’ writers before speaking with any of UT’s athletes. It was crystal clear to me that Low has not bought into ESPN’s agenda to undermine the efforts of our great football program. In essence, Low is a man with some serious Mountain Damn Values, fo sho.

His question regarding Georgia was “spot on”. I think it was a pretty straight forward question. What are people upset about the fact that he asked it? Sorry, but those kinds of questions only help and prepare athletes like Rogers if and when he gets to the NFL. I think some of us coddle this team and underestimate their ability to act as professionals in front of the media, not surprising to say the least.

“You could have gone anywhere in the country. You were committed to Georgia for awhile, you chose Tennessee at the last minute. As you look back on the decision any regrets, or are you glad its full speed ahead?”…

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
