No. Napier & Clemson was a victim of Dabo's inexperience.

But not many AQ coaches hire terribly inexperienced OCs.

Oh come on. Don't act like you were some kind of genius,
TigersAndCubs
I'm no genius for seeing an obvious thing Dabo failed to see
Razzmatazz
Not one person holds up Dabo to God-like infalibility
WillPhil
Got any proof of those claims or is it T-Net lore?***
Razzmatazz
I honestly laughed out loud when I read...
WillPhil
Then how did Gus get a job?***
CM Shack
By years of leading teams to state championships (like Chad)

Hiring Steele was understandable. Promoting Napier was not.

How many of those HCs promoted no-experience buddies to OC?
Razzmatazz
"I was opposed to promoting Dabo"
WillPhil
No. I was right. Clemson suffered from Dabo's inexperience.

Razzmatazz
When are you going to let the Koenning thing go? Vic
CM Shack
Got proof VK was openly insubordinate or is it T-Net lore?
Razzmatazz
So he hasn't been here in 5 years and you are still talking

Only in response to the silly post above.***

Yup. Guy is a numbskull.***
WillPhil
So frosh & sophs can't be utilized, like Watkins, CJ, et al?***
Razzmatazz
Who on the team in 2010 would you compare to Watkins and CJ?

So Morris wouldn't have done better w/ those future NFLers?
Razzmatazz
Are you saying we out-talented the 2010 national champions?
tiggerz04®
