Vince Dooley Quotes



[Meanwhile, it's killing college sports. There are several reasons -- none of them valid -- why the Cabinet turned the ACC down, but here's the worst of them: The SEC doesn't want to see an ACC football championship game that will compete with the SEC's for regional, and national, dollars.] The SEC made the effort to get to 12 teams in order to have a championship game, ... If the ACC wants to do the same thing, why should we change a rule just for them when it's been on the books for a long, long time?

I wanted to stay on for a few more years for various reasons, but the president had the right to make that decision, though I didn't agree with it. Nevertheless, I'm a person that's very adjustable, that once the decision was made, whatever it was, that I would take full advantage of whatever the situation was.

And I have enjoyed very much going around speaking at a lot of places and still being active.
