With Bruce Pearl pretty much single-handedly taking care of “Low Down” and “Snitch,” that left “Dirty” as the only Tennessee core value not truly demonstrated by leadership in the athletic department. Until now.
Apparently, after a recent swell in staph infections, new Vol football coach Derek Dooley wasn’t too happy with his team’s shower performance, so he did what any good coach would do. He gave his team a crash course on cleaning themselves. And then he told the media about it.
According to the coach, the team had “the worst shower discipline” that he had ever been around. Despite “shower discipline” sounding like a routine part of any porn star’s quarterly job review, Coach Dooley says that he hopes increased attention to detail in the hygiene department will help reduce cutting corners on the practice field. My bet is that it’s more likely to reduce chaffing, but I’m not the head coach at a football school of declining importance, so what do I know.
Please, join me in pointing and laughing at all things Tennessee.
