Derek Dooley plans to creat his own state for recruiting (sort of)

Derek Dooley has come up with with a new idea in recruiting. Creating his own state, sort of. His plan is to consider anywhere that's in a 300-mile radius of Knoxville as "in-state." That would include the Atlanta, Birmingham, Charlotte, and Dayton, Ohio.  metro areas, but would in fact go further.


"In that radius you also have some city and metro areas that produce good talent like Atlanta, Birmingham, Ala., and Charlotte, to name a few. Those city centers are actually closer to Knoxville, Tenn. than Memphis. But the fact of the matter is that because of Knoxville's location, 300 miles or so almost gets you to the state of Florida (south), Charlotte (east), and Dayton, Ohio (north)."
So Dooley pretty much wants to take over a good chunk of Georgia. If it were just enough of Georgia that Atlanta wouldn't have to put up with South Georgia politicians, then I'd be all for it.
On the other hand it pretty much means  that "Rocky Top" would probably be the state song, but since it was co-written by a Georgia boy, I can live with it. And Derek Dooley hair would serve as a better Governor than anybody Georgia's produced in 30 years.
