then rob us like he did with our 4* Kansas, LB commit; then yes is the answer to your question. Your question, the question you intended as a rhetorical. He||, in 5 months he's done everything but rape us in broad daylight, middle of the town square. Prolly sweep that under the rug too.
You're taking this way too hard. BV has a right to pursue a kid he thinks helps his roster. The kid has the right to change his mind about where he'll play ball. I'm still waiting for you to explain how a decommittment demonstrates a lack of integrity but a coach taking a new job doesn't. Finally, if the kid winds up at Oklahoma (or anywhere else) he never really was a Clemson "commit."
This TE was committed to Clemson. BV knows Dabo’s policy of once a player has committed, he can no longer visit other schools. BV then goes and offers this kid, after he committed to Clemson. Come on, if it had been Saban or Smart that did this, y’all would have a different opinion.
Gee, I don’t know Dawg, maybe it’s about having respect and recognizing that the kid already committed to Dabo, his friend and colleague for so many years? I’m sure there are plenty other great TE prospects out there he could’ve gone after.
Why does no one apply this "commitment" label so harshly to coaches? BV was under contract at Clemson thru the 2026 season. He left and no one questioned his integrity. Clemson fans were disappointed to see him go but they understood. Same every year with lots of assistant coaches who are under contract at the time they agree to a new job. Dont those contracts represent commitment?
Right - “Committed” coaches under contract can pack up and leave at any time. This was one of the main arguments - shouldn’t “committed” kids have the same option. From an apples to apples perspective, there is no difference. We just need to adjust to the changing landscape. I personally do not like it but … it is what it is. Adjust or be left behind.
Do you honestly believe that we have any committed player who’s not gonna be offered by another school in that timeframe? No, I wouldn’t have been more or less angry is it had been any other coach than coach V; the only difference is that if it had been Kirby I woulda been more likely to assume NIL had a play in the decomittment. Dabo’s policy is Dabo’s policy no other coach is under any obligation two give two sheets about it. Would you have felt like we had done something wrong if the opposite had happened and we flipped an OU committ?
Coach who is friends with Dabo to do that. I wouldn’t have thought much about it if it was any other coach but they apparently had a close relationship. If this player from Texas was so great why hadn’t Oklahoma already noticed and offered before we did? He is certainly much closer to them geographically so he should have been on their radar earlier if he was offer worthy. I wish Venables well and hope he is successful even though I don’t care for OU. He deserved this opportunity.
