Barbara Dooley : Wear Your Orange Garb, Barb...
Barbara Dooley has never been perceived as being very discreet, so when she so boldly states that she is pulling for Tennessee to beat Georgia on Saturday, you just have to consider the source. She makes no bones about the fact that she will sit in the same Georgia Press Box suite she has for the past 50 years dressed in head to toe in Volunteer orange. I completely understand her devotion to her youngest child, "Precious". She proudly proclaims: "that's my baby , and I'm pulling for Tennessee". Even though the University of Georgia has fed her family for those same 50 years, I personally have no problem with her allegiance to her son. I just think she could use a little more tact about it. Perhaps be a little less offensive to the Bulldog faithful. But that really isn't Mrs. Vince Dooley's style. Like I said, just consider the source. So with that in mind and in honor of her orange attire, I hope the Dawgs hang about 60 on her baby.
