Coach (Vince) Dooley here at UT-UGA final four tennis match. No worries, he's decked out in red and black.

Evidently, Vince Dooley's divided loyalties apply only to football. Go 'Dawgs!

However, the group never cheered louder than when Dooley introduced his mother, Barbara, in orange. "There is no way I can come into this state without my mother finding me," Dooley said. "I never knew how good she looked in orange. All these years she's been wearing the wrong color."

Pardon me while I puke. Go 'Dawgs!

Former Georgia football coach Vince Dooley said he does not want to be a distraction. That’s why he declared Friday morning while participating in the 24th annual Quail Unlimited Celebrity Quail Hunt in Albany that he’s not attending the Bulldogs’ Oct. 9 home game against Tennessee, which now is coached by his son, Derek. Vince, who coached the Bulldogs to six Southeastern Conference titles and the 1980 national championship, told The Herald that instead, he plans to watch the game from inside his house. "I’ve really decided now that I will sit home and watch the game," said the legendary Bulldogs coach who coached Georgia to a record of 201-77-10 in 25 seasons. "I think that I’ll be a little bit of a distraction going to the game, so I’ll watch it at home on TV. (My wife Barbara) will go, there ain’t no question about it." After being asked if she would wear orange to the Tennessee-Georgia game, Vince replied, "I don’t know what she’ll do, but I will stay at home." Pressed further on whether he would wear orange when he visits other Tennessee games his son coaches, Dooley replied, "I’m sure (Barbara) will. I may wear something a little more subtle — if orange can be subtle. I certainly won’t wear any in Georgia. But on the proper occasion, I might wear a little spot of orange."

Vince Dooley will not attend the Georgia-Tennessee game. Good call.

Never let it be said that Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton isn't a man of principle. If he wants a radically underqualified coach whose main asset is his daddy's reputation, by God, Tennessee will have a radically underqualified coach whose main asset is his daddy's reputation. Derek's father happens to be Vince Dooley.

Brian Cook on Derek Dooley. It's a bit harsh, and I like Derek Dooley, so I'm not entirely comfortable ripping on the guy, even second-hand, but the Tennessee folks have been big enough jerks over the last fourteen months that I'll indulge myself in a little more Kiffinfreude at their expense.

I had my family before I came to Georgia. It will be a quiet pulling for my son. But I’m glad we have we do have the private box; my wife will be more vocal. . . . I wish it was not at a school so close and competitive, but Derek would remind me that I left Auburn and came across the Chattahoochee to Georgia.

Vince Dooley confesses that he will be rooting for Tennessee against Georgia. I'm sorry, but he's just wrong. Vince was hired as the head coach at Georgia at the end of 1963. His son, Derek, was born in June 1968. No, he didn't have his family---at least, not this member of it---before he came to Georgia. If that's his attitude, maybe Urban Meyer is right and Vince needs to buy a ticket in the visiting section. I now allow for the possibility that we all owe Michael Adams an apology. Going over to orange is a line a Georgia man does not cross.
