KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's Derek Dooley is doing his
best to keep the most heartbreaking loss in his time as a coach in
perspective for his young Volunteers squad.
The Vols (2-3, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) thought they'd upset
No. 12 LSU when the Tigers botched what appeared to be the last
play of the game near the goal line. Moments later, Tennessee was
penalized for too many players on the field, and LSU scored on the
replayed third down to win 16-14.
Dooley says that's as bad it gets when it comes to football, but
he's also reminding players life can get a lot worse than that
heartbreaking loss. He says there's nothing the players can do but
grow and get better as they prepare to travel to Georgia (1-4, 0-3)
