'Ol Ball coach takes a shot at Tennessee

Another Tennessee coach, another jab at the Volunteers by Steve Spurrier.

The South Carolina coach commented on his radio program Thursday night about Tennessee's efforts to delay or buy out a two-game series with North Carolina by saying, "Golly, times have changed when Tennessee doesn't want to play North Carolina in football because they're too good for them," and "We're not going to bail out from playing North Carolina the way Tennessee did."

Dooley responded on the Dan Patrick Show radio program on Friday, "I guess I wouldn't be an official member of the SEC if coach Spurrier hasn't taken a shot at our program."

Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton has said he wants to delay the North Carolina series to keep the Vols from playing two non-conference BCS opponents during a rebuilding period.
