A couple seasons ago, Nick Saban and the Tide lost their last game at Bryant-Denny to UL Monroe. After the game, he made some rather bizarre comments. He called the loss a tragedy, and likened it to events such as Pearl Harbor and 9/11. In any other conference that would probably be the most absurd thing a coach has ever said, but this is the SEC. With characters like Houston Nutt, Les Miles, and Saint Nick, there is no shortage of on and off-field insanity.
This week we can add Derek Dooley to that list of loony SEC personalities.
After the loss to Alabama he compared his team to Nazi Germany on D-Day. Yeah, that's right, Nazi Germany. I'm not going to ask why anyone would want to liken themselves to the Third Reich (there isn't a good answer for this). Instead, I'm going to roll with it. Can we go ahead and make "Rommel" Dooley's official nickname?
Better yet, if Tennessee is Germany in World War II, what armies would other SEC be likened to? Let's take a quick look at how the SEC would have fared in WWII!
