Mocs head coach Russ Huesman would like to see some improvement in the running game. Chattanooga had only 71-yards rushing last week against Samford.
So to spice up the ground game, would UTC consider what Tennessee has done,and put All-American linebacker Wes Dothard in some sort of wildcat, like the Vols do with linebacker A.J. Johnson? Dothard did run the ball some in high school, so would Coach Huesman be game for putting him in the backfield?
Said Huesman, "No. And what's Tennessee's record right now?" (laughter) "Don't put that on TV." (laughter) "And you will just to spite me. Wes has got this year and next year, and I can pretty much guarantee you he won't be in the wildcat."
Said Dothrad,"I think those days of me running the ball are definitely over. I'm totally focused on defense. I'm not an offensive person anymore."
Said Huesman,"Did you see Wes's one interception this year, and his return on it? Pretty uneventful." (laughter)
