Capgate in a new light

Posted By on Tue, Aug 31, 2010 at 9:00 AM

I thought the UA overreacted in pressuring a radio station to discipline a sports show announcer who attended a Hog scrimmage wearing a Florida Gator cap, to Coach Bobby Petrino's apparent displeasure. She was fired.

But I have to evaluate all that in a new light on news from Tennessee, where Coach Derek Dooley allowed only select "respectful" reporters to attend the Vols' mock pre-season game. More troubling than a public university employee establishing such a ground rule for covering a public university's team is the fan commentary on this blog post. Most support Dooley. If a sportswriter isn't on the team, boot his butt, by God.
