Tennessee coach Derek Dooley defended his quarterback during his Monday press conference, but also said he spoke with him about tweeting after such an emotional game.
"It could have been a good tweet if he had left out the first part. It had a little humor to it," Dooley said. "When you're lonely, angry or hurt, don't type. Because you can't take it back."
