Seriously, Does Dooley give a rip about winning?

I doubt that Lane Kiffin or Nick Saban are really concerned about taking vacations. Look where their schools are ranked. In the mean time, Dooley is chasing academically challenged 3 star recruits; losing to Kentucky; getting kicked to ESPNU for the NCSU game; losing his coaching staff and finishing at the bottom of the SEC East. Yep, he needs a vacation, some acid washed jeans, a gold chain and some tube socks to complete his transformation to Mike Shula.

“I’m for a dead period in July for recruiting. Two weeks. You feel guilty when you are sitting there with your family on vacation and there’s a recruit coming into town. So yea, I would like to have a national dead period around the 4th of July, the week before and the week after. I think it would be great,” (Volquest.com)

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.
