Dooley Speaks of Passion and Love


“People who are passionate about a program and truly love it, shouldn’t speak disparaging about the program publicly.”

“We are a bad football team……” Derek Dooley

Dooley certainly got his classiness from his daddy and Nick Saban. After all, Dooley was low hanging fruit off of the Saban coaching tree. A tree that has produced so many great leaders of men. I’m sure we will prevail this upcoming season in typical classy fashion.

I am beginning to think Dooley is right for Tennessee. He just needs much more time to build his team. I would challenge any other coach to do as well as Dooley under the same circumstances. i also admire former UT AD Mike Hamilton and his handling of the Lane Kiffin and Phillip Fulmer debacles. He was firm and resolute and showed great leadership when he dismissed both of these established and winning coaches to hire Dooley. the Vol nation has great things in store for it under the leadership of Dooley and the new AD Dave Hart.

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.
