Derek Dooley gives an interesting slant on expansion

Derek Dooley sat down for an interview with the Nashville radio guys @3HL1045.

In the first few minutes Dooley provides an interesting take on what he views as an unfortunate downside of the SEC's expansion to 14 teams. Dooley says he struggles "as a person who has grown up in this league...there's an amount of respect for the schools, the traditions....I'm really concerned that in light of the expansion that we will lose some of the familiarity and that passion will start to dissipate with it." 

Very interesting point and one that has merit. Clearly the university presidents felt that the additional revenue outweighed this point; but nonetheless it's an interesting point.
