"(Michael) Palardy was hurt," Dooley said after the Vols' 24-0 victory against Middle Tennessee State. "He hurt himself Thursday in practice but we thought he'd be fine. He couldn't go. Then (Chip) Rhome goes out there in pregame and he pulls a muscle."

"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," Dooley recalled telling his staff, "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 said he got the call around 6:10 p.m., just 50 minutes before kickoff.


"I was just laying on the couch watching football," Brodus said. "Honestly, I didn't know what was going on.


"I thought it was a dream. I was just laying down on the couch relaxing. I answered the phone and they just told me to come to the stadium as soon as possible."


"He suits up and nails three PATs and a field goal," Dooley said, "so he gets the game ball. I was proud of him."


Brodus, a Maryville native, was part of two state-championship football teams at Alcoa High School. He also was an All-State soccer player for the Tornadoes.


"I'm not quite 21 yet," Brodus said, when asked about Dooley's Breathalyzer comments.
