Athens, GA (AP) - Derek Dooley says it's no big deal to coach
against Georgia. His father knows better.
So Vince Dooley is sitting this one out.
The retired Georgia coach will naturally be cheering for his son
when Tennessee faces the Bulldogs at Sanford Stadium on Saturday.
But the thought of a Dooley pulling for the visiting team between
the hedges -- well, that was just a little too awkward even for a
proud dad whose son followed in his footsteps.
For the first time, Vince Dooley will take in a Georgia home
game from his couch, just a few miles away, watching the game on
television and rooting for the Vols where no one can see.
