Across the room Dooley was offering the sentiments Scott wanted to hear. "I'm really pleased for Lindsay because of all the things that have happened to him," he said. "I'm probably the worst thing that's happened to him. I've been very hard on him. That last pass today was just supposed to be a first-down play but Lindsay turned it into a game-winner for us. So I'm not going to sit here and act like the great coach." Then Dooley paused and decided to offer one pearl of coaching wisdom anyhow. "But if you're going to be undefeated," he said, "you've got to win some this way, too."
