And yet, he still left Napier multiple players who will be drafted. Look at the 2013 Tennessee roster and tell me where there’s an Anthony Richardson, Montrelle Johnson, Venzell Miller, Trey Dean, Gervon Dexter, Rashad Torrence, Brenton Cox, or Amari Burney.
Dooley went an entire recruiting class without signing an offensive lineman. He left Cam Sutton. He left Justin Worley at QB. That’s it. The 2022 Gators roster was loaded compared to the 2013 Tennessee roster. I know we’re competing turds here, both in terms of rosters and in Butch vs. Napier, but Butch took over a far worse situation than Napier…without the benefit of the portal to fix it quickly (see, Cyrus O’Torrence).
