Tennessee Found Its Kicker In A Frat House An Hour Before The Game Saturday

Prior to Saturday's game, the Tennessee Volunteers thought they had two kickers. But after a pair of injuries, head coach Derek Dooley had to send a cop to find his third-string kicker.

Just prior to the game against Middle Tennessee State, Dooley discovered that his starting kicker had not recovered from an injury. And during a warm-ups, the Vols' back-up kicker pulled a muscle.

So, with just one hour until kickoff, the next logical step was to turn to their third-string kicker. There was only one problem: Derrick Brodus was not at the game. He was at a frat house.

Actually, there were two problems. As a college football fan, an hour before kickoff, there was some concern that Brodus might not be sober.

"We didn't have a kicker," Dooley said. "And we had to make a call to the frat house. This is no lie. We called the frat house and had a policeman go get him...Let's get a call to Brodus...and it's a good thing he wasn't having too much Saturday afternoon (fun). I told the coaches, 'Hey, an intoxicated Brodus is better than nobody...Just get him here and we'll do a Breathalyzer. Fortunately, he didn't have anything bad."

Brodus' whirlwind afternoon ended as well as can be expected. He was 3-3 on extra-points, and made his only field goal attempt.
