Tennessee Football: Dooley's Heroes for 2010-2011

As I browse the Internet for Derek Dooley images and videos, I keep seeing his passion.

That might seem crazy because if all anyone was to see is the interviews he has given to this point, you would think he was a choir boy. However, I truly do not believe this to be the case.

Sometimes people like to mess with the quiet guy until the heat of the moment comes and he knocks them on their butt.

Sure the bullies when we were growing up might end up getting the upper hand, but they remembered the next time they messed with the kid.

Evidence is Chris Petersen, head coach of Boise State, saying how glad he was to not have to tangle with Dooley anymore.

Apparently, the scrappy kid inspired one of Petersen's clan enough that he wanted to come along for the ride as well in the name of Justin Wilcox, Boise State's defensive coordinator the last couple of years.

Dooley believes in discipline and doing his talking on the field with execution. There will be no celebrating when they are losing, as Vol fans have seen in the past, where some Tennessee player celebrates because he made a big hit.

It always made me vomit a little in my mouth to see such ignorance.

He can't do it alone no matter how scrappy he is, however.

He needs some heroes to step up and be leaders, from incoming freshmen to assistant coaches.

In the following slides are big names I look to really help the Vols do some great things this year.

When all is said and done Tennessee might not be dominant but they definitely will have the respect of every team they play as long as they take their head coach's queue.
