Three years ago, when [Derek] Dooley got his first head coaching job at Louisiana Tech, his team traveled to LSU in yet another a nonconference game of non-BCS little guy playing BCS big boy for a boatload of cash. After it was over, after La Tech had absorbed a 58-10 beatdown, he heard a few of his assistant coaches in the locker room tell players to keep their heads up because they played hard. "I said that's bull---; put your head down," Dooley said. "Because I was embarrassed. Not because of the score, but because of the way we competed. I told them the next time we come here, I'm bringing a box of Sharpies and I'll have some pictures so you can get their autographs before the game."

via The Sporting News The apple doesn't fall very far from the tree and it's worth remembering what particular tree Dooley fell from. While the Vols are likely to struggle next season (and probably the year after that), this guy has a very good chance of turning Tennessee into a conference power again.
