at the time,there was plenty of reasons to think dooley could be successful. he still may have made it if the team didn't lay down this season. they just don't have the hosses on D. maybe dooley was too honest of a recruiter.
that's a crock of poo. ut is a damn good job; a destination job. they have the money and resources to get back in the nc hunt. their fanbase is as dedicated and rabid as it comes. what they did was frick up by hiring lane kiffin and then made a mistake hiring dooley. what school has done that? certainly LSU; certainly alabama; certainly notre dame...... the university of tennessee will be back, i guarantee.

No JDM1992, you're not the only Bama fan wanting to see Tennessee get back to doing well. The crap that the OP stated was the same crap opposing SEC fans were saying before We hired Saban. The right hire would see immediate results for Tennessee. They will not stay down long cause there's just too much passion for them to succeed.
