If Eason coming this is a major upgrade

I remember watching Nick play At Clemson. If there has ever been an ALL IN Guy, Nick is the man.

The hire of Nick Eason was a grand slammer for Dabo. Bates who?

IF Nick can recruit as well as Bates he will quickly become a fan favorite.

I'm pretty sure you are correct.

While I get the enthusiasm and desire to support a new coach, it's probably best to wait and see how Eason does before comparing him to Bates or claiming he's major upgrade. Eason has nowhere near the body of work coaching wise to make the comparison to Bates whose Dline has been probably the best in the country the last 4-5 years. Eason doesn't have a proven track record yet at the college level to say he's better than someone with the acumen that Bates has. Not saying Eason won't be as good or.better but it's way to soon to say.

its true. While I think Eason will be better Bates was an excellent DT coach. But time will tell.

Ask Skalski about Bates failure to bring in players to


Jan 5, 2022, 8:19 PM

substitute the players that left. Skalski saw that Bates did not replace the players running over to our sideline. Skalski was yelling at Bates "where is the replacements"?

If you have this year's Syracuse on tape, watch what happens at the end of the 3rd quarter.


I have much more respect for Eason.

How the new coach responds when he begins working with the talent that Clemson has. They might make him look better than some of you think he is.

His resume begs to differ.
Couple that with his Clemson connection, and it’s a grand slam home run. Common sense.

To be fair to you, Clemson's D-Line has been terrific under Bates.

But our D-Tackle talent has been nothing short of magnificent over the past since 2015. One might argue, for all the challenges in identifying top notch HS football players, that identifying the top-end D-Tackles is the easiest to evaluate properly.

So to be fair to our players; they were great coming in. (But Bates deserves credit for helping them to develop.)

And our tremendous D-End play since 2015 (with Bates only being partly involved) is more than just an accessory to our overall D-Line play.

If recruiting stays at a top level for the D-line in general (and for D-Tackles in particular) ... which will be increasingly challenging as NIL changes the paradigm of recruiting ... then N.Eason's coaching abilities will shine through like a young Beyonce on a foggy night.

I am not going to bash Bates. He was great for our program and found a greener pasture. It happens when people do not get the desired position in an organization. Wish him all the best.

Really excited to get Nick though. I do not see a drop off with recruiting or performance.

I would argue that if you just look at the first class and on that he took over, so you exclude Wilkins, Cle, AB and Dex, his first class was ‘17, while he can recruit the talent I could say he didn’t develop them to their potential, KJ and XT were supposed to be all world players, Tyler Davis has been better than expected, BB and Myles as advertised, but remember how Dan Brooks had waves of drafted talent that were not that when recruited, Kevin Dodd comes to mind, we are losing a great recruiter but not sure a great development coach. When we had Dan and Marion, I think we developed much better…. NE is more in that mold I believe, curious how he is as a recruiter… can’t wait to find out!

Well it’s a good sign when you see Auburn fans upset about losing, in their words, their best recruiter. I’d be worried if they were happy he was leaving. Maybe he can bring some recruits/players with him…just saying.

Very true.


Jan 5, 2022, 9:10 PM

They are not happy, and considering he has only been there a year, I think that’s a great sign.

You think Bates was responsible for that great record? ?? What about Trevor and Deshaun. You forgetting those bad boys. With the D line we have had most anyone could have coached them and had success.
