Dabo did what he had to do, but it's just plain sad [4]
Posted: Apr 23, 2014 12:46 PM
 

It could very easily be a culmination of a lot of the points made above in this thread.
I've thought about the situation a lot as well & I do kinda feel like CK decided it was going to be a true "make it or break it" scenario honestly, which really his whole personality seems to be like that. This allows to not think clearly & control himself in an adult situation...A leaper before looker kinda guy, if you will. He knows what he's supposed to do & how to act, but just can't not wanna be flashy & the attention, the story. Dabo & the program laid it all out there for him, but he just couldn't control his own nature. It's sad, but that's one of the main reasons he didn't fit the program & team...maybe the playbook, but not the type team Clemson has built/is building, or the type of character for players representing our team & university.
Once again, it's sad for all involved, but that attitude & behavior only causes unnecessary drama & dissention (sp?) between the players within. A 'wannebe it all' just don't fit what the coaches are preaching & the structure of the program they want.
It's obvious that Dabo & the coaches truly care though & that's important. Dabo can't blame himself for having to make that tough decision, but it was necessary in order to not allow the team's morale to be poisoned. It takes a real man to say what he said & admit failing CK, which of course he didn't "fail" him, but teach him a very valuable life lesson that will probably save CK a much harder lesson later on when it could really affect his life & future. He has plenty of time& talent to recover but Dabo has to be applauded for doing what's difficult, yet best for the team & undoubtedly painful. It's not like CK wasn't likable or anything...he had something about him for sure & a certain confidence or charisma. He definitely still has tons of opportunity & talent, that "it"....just not an "it" for here in Clemson's program.

Move on & get better!

Go Tigers!
