Derek Dooley bans his mother Barbara from the state of Tennessee

Derek Dooley has a bit of a problem on his hands. His mother, Barbara Dooley, has become a media celebrity in her own right in Tennessee. Which is not surprising to anybody in the state of Georgia, where Barbara can be very outspoken and sometimes outrageous when she gets in front of a microphone.
So how is the best hair in the SEC dealing with such a situation. Simple, he says he "had to ban her from the state."

"She has developed a bit of an icon status in Tennessee, and I've had to ban her from the state."
Derek said he asked his mother not to do any interviews with in-state (Tennessee) media.
"Mom has violated my media policies," he said. "She does it every day, and she doesn't give a (darn). My power can only go so far. She thinks it's fun. She's not going to think that when we have some bad years."

Dooley Doesn't seem to be having that problem with father Vince, though.

"My dad doesn't want to tell anybody if he goes (to the game) because he doesn't want it to become a spectacle," Derek said. "How many times have you had to look at a quarterback's dad (like Archie Manning in a stadium whenever Eli or Peyton is playing) on TV before you start going 'Please!'"

Which is probably good, because any sight of Vince Dooley in Frosted Orange would probably mean irate members of the Bulldog Nation ready to run Dr. Evil Adams out of Athens with pitchforks and torches a-blazing (like they need an excuse to do that).
