Default Dabo as Saban's Replacement?

http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river


Birmingham News article asks if you can see Dabo as a potential replacement candidate for Saban when Saban retires. Personally, I can't see it, but he does have the Alabama connection.

This may need to be moved to smack thread in the future.

let him stay at clemson. while i would prefer they not win 10 games a year and recruit as well as they do they still recruit and coach in such a way that will make it tough for them to beat us much. They are all flash and not much substance in the trenches. look at their recruting again this year. always heavy on the skill positions and weak along both fronts. fortunately for us that makes us their kryoptonite.

Someone raised this question a couple of months ago and most of the replies were, "Nice guy, Bama grad, nice he overcame a difficult background, but no, hell, no."

I think he can do both at the same time, and when this happens I would request Alabama become our new permanent cross division rival.

Oh, yes please. Auburn would own the series during his tenure, though he'd be fired after 3-4 losses. They're much stricter at Alabama, than at Clemson. They fired Bill Curry after he went 10-1 and won a share of the SEC title, because lost to Auburn.

I'm sure bama would love to replace their HOF coach with an 'aw shucks hillbilly hard-luck story done good.

If I was Dabo I wouldn't like this, because I'd be worried Harvey Updyke would try to poison me after reading it.

I doubt they would hire him because Bama wants a real coach and not a cheerleader with a headset.

Default Re: Dabo as Saban's Replacement?

First, this whole "Alabama connection" thing is waaaayyyy overblown by the Clempson fan base to look like that clown was some sort of all-American there. the fact is is that he was a scrub walk on/waterboy that they let dress out for home games. the guy had SIX receptions his entire career.

Second, and this is the one that won't be talked about that much publicly, but I can GUARANTEE you that the BOT, president, and fan base wouldn't put with for one damn second datboy's bible thumping bs. if he started that preaching about God is on Clemson's side, quoting the bible in press conferences, etc. they'd run him out of town before he could pack pack up his stuff.

I hate to say it but if Clemson continues at or near its current level of success, I definitely think Dabo would be on their short list. He should be able to recruit better players to Alabama than he could to Clemson and with great players mediocre coaches can be very successful.

And the ability to hire quality support staff would not be a problem at Bama.

tearing him up in the comments section

they also say in the article that Chad turned down jobs to come back...did he really turn down any jobs? seemed to me it was more that he was the 2nd or 3rd option for every job he was up for and didn't get any offers

Default Re: Dabo as Saban's Replacement?

For some reason a coach that jumps in the air bumpin players just doesn't fit the motif of a coach at Bama. One has to have a certain amount of knowledge, class, discipline, and maturity to be a coach at an institution like Bama. Just my opinion.
