Here I was thinking Derek Dooley was some Shakespeare quoting intellectual, only to find out he’s actual a real life dude when the media isn’t around.
After his Vols beat Vanderbilt 27-21 in overtime Saturday for their first conference win of the season, Dooley led his team in a locker room celebration. At the end of his speech, he dropped a now-infamous quote: “The last thing that I’m going to remind you before we sing, is that the one thing Tennessee always does is kick the s*** out of Vandy.”
Here’s the video as shared by Outkick the Coverage:
Whoever took that video and uploaded it to YouTube is probably in trouble. That’s the type of video that’s not intended for the public. However, it is awesome, and because of that, we felt like we needed to share it.
Think Vandy won’t remember this when the teams meet in the future? And what does it say about Tennessee? There was once a day where they ruled the SEC East, and now they’re celebrating their only conference win against a below average team. How the mighty have fallen.
Here is audio of Dooley’s locker room speech:
