Check this out. I just dont get it. It seems some folks get a job with a little prestige and it goes to their head. There is no need to "Big League" the same folks who are/should be feeding your program and helping it succeed!
IT TAKES NO TALENT TO HUSTLE
Nice find , Bill Price was my coach at Bradley in the late 90's and he always talked about Fulmer or Larry Slade making a visit once a year so this makes sense now , interesting article .
Heard the same story from some former players and school administrators in Nashville regarding Dooley. This was three years ago. They all thought he was destined to fail. Thought he was an arse. Not calling names, just repeating what I heard.
Wow at that article. Dooley didn't do any favors in the.Chattanooga area.
Wow. Great find +1

Really no excuse for this, especially for someone whose supposed to be "well organized" and good withthe administrative stuff. This sounds like basics.
Things are really starting to make sense now. If I had known this before, I'd been on the anti Dooley train long ago.
How much of this falls on Hinshaw since he's the recruiting co?
Nice find. That article is an indictment on inexcusable instate recruiting actions. Thanks for sharing.
There really is no excuse for this to have happened. If we were recruiting classes full of only 5-star guys, i could MAYBE give a pass. Considering that hasn't been the case, I am baffled.
On the plus side, there may be an opportunity for the new staff to really get in on Bell if the hire doesn't take too long.
This blew me away. And the fact that I am just now reading this has me thinking. +1 for the find.
A lot IMO.
There was a good discussion yesterday about reasons fr and against retaining Hinshaw, this should answer that.
Ironically, Calhoun, GA...isn't that where DaRick and Nash Nance went to high school? You would think Dooley would want to keep that relationship..
You know the point where you know something is probably not going well....
Then your pretty sure that its straight up awful, but your torn as to what is the best way to deal with it to make it better...
Then there is no doubt at all how awful things are / have been, and you think it's finaly hit rock bottom so there's only one way to go from here (so your optimism / hope starts to grow)...
After reading this artical, where the heck am I? I was positive we had hit rock bottem and had nowhere to go but up. This artical just upsets me to no end - it's amazing what one thinks they know, or what they will try to convince themselves of under the veil of support. Ugh.
So would I.
I grew up in the Chattanooga area and played football there , I know there isnt a lot Sec caliber players. Red Bank , Ridgeland, Ooltewah , Calhoun and McCallie are about the only schools in that area that have had some D-1 prospects, but it doesn't excuse the fact of not at least making your presence known , so when players like Von Bell come around its a lock .
This article is really disturbing to me. It really bothers me knowing that this is how our staff is conducting the rebuilding process of UT football.........
Some of that in the article was troubling but some of it seems just like more people piling on here. I have seen Reese play and that kid will struggle to see the field at UK. As far as the Chattanooga area its not very good and worth them spending too much time here should they drop by yes but it would be near the bottom of my recruiting pool too. Let's just hope the new staff does better in the places that matter.
Just...disappointed. No excuse for not making the Tennessee kids a priority. +1 for the find wb.
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
