“I have my Bear Skin”


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.

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.
