Vince Dooley planning to cheer for son, Vols

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Derek Dooley says it's no big deal to coach against Georgia. His father knows better.

So Vince Dooley is sitting this one out.

The retired Georgia coach will naturally be cheering for his son when Tennessee faces the Bulldogs at Sanford Stadium on Saturday. But the thought of a Dooley pulling for the visiting team between the hedges -- well, that was just a little too awkward even for a proud dad whose son followed in his footsteps.

For the first time, Vince Dooley will take in a Georgia home game from his couch, just a few miles away, watching the game on television and rooting for the Vols where no one can see.
