Thanks. I know Dabo always says that. But that's usually in reference to kids getting an offer. Is he saying we should use the portal? Or is he saying kids shouldn't be going into the portal and they should ttp.

Thanks if anyone can break the code.

I'm still baffled. Is he talking about himself, Ajou? Ladson? Someone else. He's gotten playing time but been hurt... Unless he's talking about DJ. Again, confused.

I believe what he is trying to say is...How long should someone "trust the process" and watch others play before they decide to go into the portal to another school where they can play. It's really all the mentality now of everyone gets a trophy, everyone gets to play. Kids these days can't come to the realization that I did in HS when I played baseball that I was just not good enough to start. Didn't keep from being on the team, practicing everyday, trying to get better and contribute when I could. But I'm 54 years old now and kids don't get the up bringing my generation did.

Re: E.J. Williams tweet

About 2500 in the portsl ain't playing now and most won't ever play again, at least for a school anyone has heard of. The best thing to do is get what playing time you can and graduate. Only about 1.6% make it to the NFL anyway.

He’s gone because of a tweet? He was a starter this year. He's obviously taking a shot at fans for talking trash to players for transferring. Obviously not talking about himself.

Mainly just being sarcastic here, but who knows??These kids think it and tweet it.
He could very well be calling out people who’ve bashed his teammates for hitting the portal or he could be thinking about it himself. Can’t imagine he’d be thinking of transferring.

So if I'm understanding with the money bag reference, go to the portal and go somewhere that will pay you.

I give up. Guess we'll find out soon. As for ppl, unless it's on fbook or Twitter, talking trash. I see very few posts on here denigrating a kid going to the portal.

I don't think fans are upset with players transferring....


Dec 15, 2021, 9:26 AM

in general............I get it, but 2 things have changed in the last 3 years that have upended the sport.

-transferring w/o having to sit out a year

&

-NIL........the richest programs can now chase transfers and offer money.....Kiffin said it best.....it's free agency in college football now.

Re: E.J. Williams tweet


Dec 15, 2021, 9:31 AM

Not what I meant. They don’t care about the school at all, just getting to the NFL.

Every single “elite” recruit expects to be a starter and impact player from day 1, if not, just head to the portal…that’s a real problem since the majority aren’t ready from day 1.

I suppose NIL has a similar effect.

He’s just engaging people for opinions…

Several of our players have done the same regarding a variety of topics. It’s actually a really good question.

Sounds like he is talking about fans criticizing players for transferring. Basically he saying IMO is... How long do you expect players to stay and trust the process when they aren't playing much. But I could be misinterpreting it.

He wants us to throw the ball more to him so he can get drafted. Last season had to be disheartening for him with injuries and the offense in general. Generational wealth and dreams are on the line.

Come on TNET, I am 60 years old and I can translate it for you.

How long yall want folks to wait for success to come and TTP before they hit the portal?????

How long should a player that has aspirations of playing at the next level and/or getting a shot at some real NIL money wait before they get their chance as the starter at their position? How long and how many times should they be told to trust the process? I have all kinds of people telling me that I would be the man if I just entered the transfer portal, I want to play! Two emojis indicating that he has spent a lot of time thinking about this topic.

It would help if we had a QB or OC that could get these guys the ball

[2]
Dec 15, 2021, 9:52 AM

I don’t know if he’s thinking of transferring or what, but could you blame him? Our QB can’t get these guys the touches they were expecting when they chose to come to Clemson. That, or our OC can’t scheme up plays to get them open. Lastly, the WRs themselves can’t get open. Coaching solves most all of those problems I just listed. Talent also contributes to the equation. But as for coaching, I expect to see much of the same with my personal worst case scenario coming true with promoting guys we already had on staff. That’s just my .02

Guys, this is a good tweet

Hope he’s not talking smack


Dec 15, 2021, 3:13 PM

Because it’s kinda hard to do that when you finish behind Ajou Ajou and a RB, Pace, in stats. I know he dealt with a minor knee surgery, but I mean when your most famous or infamous highlight of the season is getting into it with NC State fans after losing…

I think he needs some self-reflection.

He was hurt all year. He skipped getting a hand surgery to try and play the season. We need him to stay.

Well he played or was available 7 out of 12 games according to this:

I believe his Tweet is response to Dabo’s comments “against” the Portal.
I think he’s taking a poke at Dabo and all anti-Portal folks. Not for himself but for his peers.
How long should a player expect to have to wait to “Trust The Process” before they get meaningful playing time? One year, two years, three years?

I think NIL has created a new sense of urgency for players to get playing time sooner rather than later so they can get in on any NIL opportunities.

Not judging, just sharing my interpretation,

You are probably right but

As the saying goes, you don’t bite the hand that feeds you. I’m pretty sure employees at most places I’ve worked couldn’t just go out and publicly criticize a boss or their customers.

Re: You are probably right but


Dec 15, 2021, 4:16 PM

I’ll read into that it is criticism or response to fans, not necessarily coach comments (though they may be very similar). And to your point sure one can say fans are customers. But for my purpose I will choose to not equate twitter and tnet comments as those of customers.

Re: E.J. Williams tweet


Dec 15, 2021, 5:15 PM

Here’s the deal EJ. 90% of the transfers will find out that leaving because you’re the backup is not wise. If your are apart of a good program where you are being developed and growing has a lot more value than these kids think. The old saying still remains true. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

There’s going to be a lot of homeless players going into 2022 because a large majority of the portal is filled with average to below average players. What every players needs to consider is (Not Every Player is Starter material) and an even smaller number is NFL material. But all these players jumping around in hopes to showcase their “talents” to get to the league while and chasing a dream that has a high chance of not coming true. That’s whan that growth, development, and high quality education will come in handy. Going on to have a great career in something other than football is in play for the vast majority of college football players.

I guarantee you Cornell Powell is so thankful he stuck it out. He unfortunately isn’t NFL material (more than likely). But he had one helluva senior year and got drafted. So he at least got a little money and got some of the best life coaching a man could get. PAW journey is very valuable. Unfortunately I don’t know how Dabo can recruit to PAW journey anymore because all kids hear and see now is go get paid through NIL and just transfer if I don’t start.

But to answer your question EJ. You are at Clemson! The best place you can be. You can get the best life coaching money can buy from top of the line mentors. Start preparing for life after football because if you just do happen not to be an NFL receiver then Clemson is the best program you can be at to prepare you for life after football.

For all those wondering, he isn’t particularly talking about himself. Think, he’s probably really good friends with all the guys from the team who have gone to the portal & has been hearing them all get criticized.

I doubt he’s transferring because as far as I’m sure we all think, him, Ngata & Collins will be the top 3 targets next year. But who knows, maybe barstool sports is offering him. 7 figures to go to Jackson state
