- I'm running late this morning, so pardon whatever typos and illogical statements might find their way into this morning's Talking Points. I have a good reason, by the way. I enjoyed this too much:
- From It's Time to Give Him Time. Derek Dooley knows better than to believe in honeymoons for SEC coaches:
"Look, here's the reality," Dooley said. "Every coach has time until the first kickoff, not even the first game, but the first kickoff. Right when the ball goes 'boom' against UT-Martin, your time's over. "You've got no more time. You've got to win."
. . . .
"What's the whole 'Give him time' thing really mean?" Dooley said. "It doesn't mean I'm sitting here thinking, 'I've got time.' In my mind, I've got one year. I approach it that way every year. We've got to figure out how we're going to win as many games as we can win this year, and that's all I care about."
