    Nashville has 3 private schools with talent and then Murfreesboro area has solid public school talent. But that's pretty much it. Memphis has some kids from time to time

    That's not a hot take at all

    too big of an ego to go out that early at the top of his game + he is going to want to employ his son-in-law and further nepotism his career (which is why a private school or state without those type of rules will be the focus)

    He’s also been an announcer before and went to OSU after like a year in the booth

    Not the worst analogy a Tennessee coach has ever made. Dooley once compared his guys to overwhelmed nazis on D Day.

    lol how had I not heard about this until now.

    "Right now we're like the Germans in World War II. Here come the boats, they're coming. You have the binoculars, and it's like, 'Oh, my God, the invasion is coming.' That's what they did, they were in the bunkers. It's coming, they call Rommel — they can't find Rommel. (Pretending to speak into a radio.) 'What do we do? I'm not doing anything until I get orders.' (Pretends to look through binoculars.) 'Have you gotten Rommel yet?'

    "I don't want the German people to get upset at me. I'm not attacking them, but that's what happened. You had one group, they weren't worried about what the plan was and orders and all that. When the war hits, things change. You've got to go. You had the other group, and they go, 'Wait a minute. They told us the invasion was way further north' where we had the empty tanks and we were hiding Patton out. 'We weren't ready for this, now what do we do?' 'We better wait until Rommel tells us what to do.'

    I think it sends a bad message to the kid if he wears Tennessee gear and is met with anything besides shame. That’s just not the way life works.
