Do you think it's ironic that with Dooley as HC
Bray/Rodgers/Patterson/Hunter/Thomas etc... all are said to have leadership/character issues. I would take what Dooley has to say about his former players with grain of salt. Dooley was as bad a HC at a major college program as I've seen in a long time. Clearly in over his head.
Coaching can really screw up young players. For example I have watched NC and Arkansas last two years. Most of Ark main players like Alvin Bailey had an "off year" 2012. Same thing happened to A&M before the UH coach took over.
Rogers' coaches from high school and Tech are supporting him so if he can stay away from the reefer he'd be my first also to lock him up. I don't care where he's ranked.
