Nick Saban says Derek Dooley “is doing a fantastic job” at Tennessee

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

It’s not unusual for Nick Saban to make statements that don’t really make sense. Case in point, Saban’s comments about Derek Dooley after Alabama dominated Tennessee 44-13.

Saban used his opening statement in his post-game press conference to shower his former assistant with praise. Praise that most in Knoxville don’t agree with it.

And since this is obviously “Saban-talk”, there are only two possible meaning of those comments. Either he wants to keep a punching bag like Dooley in Knoxville or he wants a former assistant to do well so it just adds to the Saban mystique.

“I think Tennessee’s team really played hard,” Saban said. “I think that Derek is doing a fantastic job. They have been better and better every year that we’ve played them. We were fortunate today that our defense played well enough to keep their high-powered offense to just 13 points.”

So let’s see here, Dooley’s first season in Knoxville was 2010. Since then, the Tide have beaten the Vols 41-10, 37-6, and 44-13.

Yeah, Saban just wants to keep the Derek Dooley punching bag in Knoxville.
