Default do you think dabo really understands that usc

has passed him by? i mean, the guy did play for alabama and knows what sec football is all about. i think he knows that we are ahead but cant state it because he is at clemson.

what has helped him hide the fact that clemson is not that great is the tremendously weak schedule. the auburn win, which looked so good early, is nothing now. the media has helped him out all they could. now, i think he has to win the big games. i surely dont see him smiling as much.

I do remember when Datz4 stated the week before the game he would take his team and play anyone....Even Bama or Notre
Dame........I might give him ND cause I feel they are really overrated but klempzun dont want any of Bama....or LSU as a matter of fact...

There isn't much that Abo understands.

Let's be clear about that.

Default Re: do you think dabo really understands that usc

He has a fanbase that is stupid enough to fall for "All In" slogans.

He has a fanbase that hangs on his every word as he futilely tries engaging in a war of words, insults, and jabs with Steve Spurrier.

He has a fanbase that's largely oblivious to the fact the ACC compeitition they play is weak, leading to grossly inflated stats and a false sense of superiority.

Common sense would tell you that Daboo understands.

However, it may be a stretch for Daboo to exhibit said common sense.

Honestly, I don't think he gets it. He reminds me of Baghdad Bob telling the media that the American invaders have all been killed, while our tank convoys rolled past behind him.

AU also uses the all in slogan. I suspect that is where doobee came up with the one for Clemp.

Default Re: do you think dabo really understands that usc

I think Dabo gets it and knows he is in the very best coaching situation he can ever get. Mainly for the reasons that pitchcock listed above about the fans, the ACC. He's going to try every thing he can to bleed all of the cash out of the university he can. When Morris leaves and takes his gimmick offense with him, Dabo is going to be in the exact same situation Gene Cheesedip found himself in at Auburn. Dabo will get fired and can only hope a decent school picks him up to be a recruiter. CU is the pinnacle of his head coaching career

Dabo is a freaking moron ... I usually have respect for any opposing coach as in they are in that position for a reason.... but Dabo is a freaking joke... a waste of football space...

Simply put - Dabo & Clemson fanbase live in a bubble up there in Pickens County/Upstate.

They have and will continue to talk about championships and historical records all day long. You'll hear words like atmosphere and how scenic their campus is. Oh, and then there is the great academics that they've got.

And for the most part...they're right...it's a nice school--good nursing and engineering programs up there. And they've had a very good history in football...and continue to be one of the top teams in the ACC.

Their problem is and will continue to be under Dabo is that to be relevant on a national stage and be able to compete with teams outside the ACC (5th best BCS conference--most would agree), is that they do not:

1) have top notch position coaches who develop talent
2) recruit quality depth on the offensive/defensive lines
3) stength & conditioning program is outdated

fwiw - Clemson has won conference championships the last 30 or so years and did win a National Championship in the early 80's (no matter how they went about it)

...but then again, BYU has basically done the same thing during the same time period--and how are they regarded on the hierarchy of college football? Just sayin'

GO COCKS!!

Lou Holtz did bolt once he came to this realization that Clemson had left Sakar Liner in the dust. We will give Dabo another year but the pressure is going to be high.

Hey now, some of us who live in the Upstate (and have lived here our whole lives) don't drink the Orange Kool Aid.

It is kind of funny how you guy tote Pickens County as bad, which Clemson is barely in, while failing to look at demographic data from Richland County. Go look at the crime rates in both.

You guys lowered you already low standards and coaching improved a lot. What is your GSR right now? Something like 39%? I believe you guys have the lowest of bowl bound teams by 8 percentage points.

Take those lies back to Tigernet where they were formulated.

Here is an article from a respectable source.

This article was copied from the AP which is a respectable source.

That USA Today article uses the rates from the 02-05 class meaning the GSR's are 2-3 years old (09/10 classes) and has SC on their list 2 times (at #11 and #24, yeah no idea either)

Edit: in all fairness you guys are right

The APR data does not include data from the 2011-12 academic performances of the teams in
the study but instead uses four years of data ending in the 2010-11 school year. This is the most
updated data available on the NCAA website.
SC for 2011-2012 was a 55, so I do not know where they pulled the 39 from

Clemson is still 20-25 points ahead and I believe this is a major reason why you guys are pulling away from us

The 39% number has been shown to be due to the fact that incorrect data was submitted. Obviously the author missed that bit of information. The reason that USA Today article used 02-05 GSR rates is because they are the most current that the NCAA released.

This is directly from the NCAA sit and there is nothing close to 39%.
