In the first game of the season, Derek Dooley masterfully employed a “kid gloves” approach in dealing with the powerful but rebuilding Montana Grizzly squad. During two quarters of play, Dooley shocked the confused Vols nation, by artfully not displaying a powerful running game behind a vaunted O-line, but executing the deceptively effective fumble/recovery play. QB Tyler Bray was his usual conservative self on the field, tossing TDs and then shrugging his shoulders like it wasn’t “a thang”.
I’m grateful that we got Dooley in charge of our program. He is not only a great coach, he dresses nice and wears orange pants and old school ball cap that made me think of a young Fulmer patrolling the sidelines. In fact I thought that Dooley’s rain jacket made him look like he was 40 pounds overweight, Fulmer-esque
I left at halftime with the majority of the crowd the language was just too foul for me i am glad Dooley showed some class and didn’t blow Montana out. Those young kids are impressionable and I don’t want to see them representing the university like that.
