1 ACC championship. Weakest Sagarin-ranked ACC in over a decade, won largely because FSU's starting QB & several starters were out injured.
3 division titles (in 4 years) Yay. We were kings of half of the pathetic ACC. Oh... except we didn't REALLY win the Atlantic this year in any meaningful sense.
back to back 10 win seasons Beat ACC cupcakes & non-AQ cupcakes. Lost to the only good teams (TCU, FSU, SCAR, WVU, USF, et al).
1 coach of the year award Yay. And Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize.
35 wins in first 4 years (could be 36 with bowl win) Beat ACC & non-AQ cupcakes. Lost to the good teams.
Dabo is 0-6 against non-con Top 25 finishers. That's ZERO wins. ZERO.
Dabo is 3-10 in upset games. His teams get upset by less talented teams far more than they upset more talented teams. That's just bad coaching.
Clemson lost 4-straight to SCar for the first time in 60 years. They were all pretty bad whuppings too.
Dabo took a talented, future-NFL-laden Clemson team that had perennially finished in and out of the bottom half of the Top 25 under Bowden, and Dabo led them to finish in and out of the bottom half of the Top 25. No improvement from a national yardstick, but looking good relative to a weakening laughing-stock ACC. Heck, even the Big East teams (WVU & USF) humiliated Dabo. Big improvement.
On the other hand, for example, Spurrier (a seasoned, national championship HOF coach that Clemson could have hred) took a historically weak, unranked, losing-record, steaming pile of garbage and turned them into a nationally respected team that has whupped Clemson 4-straight.
But I guess it's better to promote a WR-coach to do on-the-job training.
