Dooley can’t recruit…SHOCKED

I want Dooley to succeed as much as anyone but the in-state losses are piling up and where there is smoke, there is fire. The fact is our in-state recruits hear about our program the most because of geography, media attention, alumni, etc. If they are turning against us, there should be genuine concern about the direction of our football program.  And maybe, just maybe blogs like LWS aren’t helping the situation. Tennessee Recruiting: But its only July… « Loser with Socks

The facts:

For the 2012 in state class the general consensus was that Kimbrow (Vandy), Jovon Robinson (Auburn), Mathers (Ole Miss), & Jelks (Vandy) were the best prospects in-state.

For the 2013 class in-state class, it’s thought that Ramsey (USC), Elder (not us), Maybin (likely not us), & Carr (TN…but many think he may flip to Ole Miss).

If we can’t win the battle within our borders we won’t win it anywhere else. Heck at this point we’re struggling against Vandy and Coach Milk Dud in recruiting battles and Lane Kiffin might really be Dooley’s daddy.

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.
