Pretty good read! Think it explains why Dabo and Saban are similar.

I don't know man, I still hear the arrogance that is in many of those statements. He didn't talk about the ### chewing Sabah gave his assistants the previous year on the way home after .. a win!! If that doesn't define you nothing else can . Yes , Sabah told his team exactly what needed to be said. Then he went behind closed doors and ripped the men who work so hard for him a new one. You know , well, cause we Bama and sposed to win every game by double digits. Here's to ratcheting that crap down a notch or two!!!! WE ARE CLEMSON!!!

Excellent article by a nice young man!*******

That is why perceptive people gravitate to them. They are very very different but at the end of the day most people only build bonds with people who really are who they appear to be.

I really liked his article but I think he got it wrong on one thing - their fans didn't really support them like their coach. What kind of fan base has less than 20 people to welcome you home after playing in the National Championship? Maybe they're spoiled. I know I hope we enjoy their level of success without ever getting spoiled and without ever forgetting to love our Tigers, even when they lose.

This might be the best written sports article I've ever read

I prefer writing that feels like it's a conversation and not an explanation. He really captured that here. Well done!

I absolutely agree! Leaps and bounds above most....***

Either a dual major or minor in literature or communications (Written) or perhaps a Ghost Writer, but somehow I doubt that. He seems to have too much pride and moxie to let someone else write for him.
Kudos to you Johnathan Allen, you are a remarkable young man!

the Alabama football complex as the team got back from Tampa the next day ?


And then post our team coming home from Phoenix last year.


THAT is why the Clemson Family is the Clemson Family.



Well written article - and I truly believe this guy truly believes what he is written - but it doesn't hold water in a lot of places, in my opinion.
