Last Saturday, while the Bulldog nation sweated out a 35-32 victory over the Tennessee Volunteers that should not have been as hard as our scholar-athletes made it, former head football coach and athletic director Vince Dooley's first team at UGA was recognized on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. As nice as that was, more - much more - needs to be done to honor the legendary Hall of Fame coach.

My good friend stopped by my office the other day, somewhat surprising me with his visit.

Not only is Vince Dooley a Hall of Fame football coach but he is a Master Gardener, too. I just got a copy of his new book, "Vince Dooley's Garden: The Horticultural Journey of a Football Coach." (Looking Glass Books) How many people do you know who have had a hydrangea named after them (Hydrangea Macrophylla, also known as the "Dooley") and can recognize an over/under 4-3 defense?

I asked him about his son, Derrick, the new head football coach at Tennessee.

The reason for writing this letter is because many of the candidates I met were completely out of touch with reality. I ...
