He's sincere about it and his sincerity is resonating with other believers who also happen to be great football players.

God loves you and I will pray for you. You need to take your anti God, small minded, look at me I'm cool because I doubt God attitude somewhere else. Open your eyes, our country is in the gutter due to PC junkies like you and all you think is mentioning God is the end of the world. It's time Christians tell you to buzz off, so..... Buzz off.

Dabo doesn't mention God in most of his postgame speeches


Dec 31, 2015, 10:15 PM

I'm probably one of a very small minority of people on here that is trying to give you the benefit of the doubt about this post. But it's not like he spends a lot of time in his postgame interviews discussing God/Jesus. In fact, he very rarely mentions anything at all about anything religious in any of his postgame exchanges.

Regardless of my own personal religious beliefs, I actually agree with you that postgame interviews and other similar situations are not an appropriate time for him to vigorously promote his religious beliefs. However, I think there is a very distinct contrast between a coach or player giving thanks to God following a game than for them to turn the platform into a promotion of their religion. What amounts to basically only one sentence giving thanks to God is an extremely small portion of what Dabo said in his postgame interview.








If Dabo wants to discuss his personal religious views with recruits and their families, he has every right to. Considering that these kids are about to make one of the most important decisions of their lives, and they're likely going to spend the next four years of their lives forming an extremely close relationship with Coach Swinney, many families are eager to engage in this type of discussion. If a recruit is coming from a family background that is closely tied to Christian beliefs, the player and his family will most likely be pleased to know that their future football coach shares similar beliefs.

If the recruit comes from a non-religious background then this wouldn't be a topic that Dabo would focus on. I'm sure he would answer any questions related to his beliefs, and it wouldn't be surprising if he mentioned it to every family, but unless the recruit wanted it to be a primary focus, it's not something that would be heavily promoted.







Coach Swinney has every right to belief in whatever he wants, and if he mentions something about his beliefs in passing or makes one or two statements concerning Christianity, he is completely within his rights. It's true that Clemson is a public university, and the Constitution requires a separation of church and state. However, Clemson University nor the athletic department or the football program endorse Christianity as their official religion.

The coaching staff is entitled to believe whatever they like, and they are free to mention their personal beliefs so long as they aren't coercing any players into those same beliefs, endorsing Christianity as the official religion of the football program, or discriminating against any of the players because they have different religious beliefs.

There's always a chance that something as simple as giving thanks to God following a game can potentially offend or alienate a small number of viewers. By the same token though, there's also the possibility of having a contingent of viewers (probably much larger) that agree and support what he is saying.

I'm curious how the group of viewers that are agitated in any way by what he said would feel if his comments were slightly different and instead gave thanks to his creator instead of God. If he only thanked his creator, wouldn't that be generic enough to encompass basically everyone except for atheists? The intent of his statement would still be exactly the same, but if he used a more inclusive synonym instead of the word God I bet people would react differently.

As long as Dabo keeps his religious talk to something as simple as a single statement giving thanks, he isn't crossing any lines as far as I'm concerned. I actually think it's a bit trivial to worry about a single statement.

Well, the next time you are the head coach at Clemson you can keep it to yourself. Dabo obviously feels he owes his personal success to God. If you don't like it, of well... There are a lot of things I don't like that aren't my call.

goes totally against what being a Christian is all about. I never understood why anyone has a problem with some one glorifying God. If someone is a true Atheist what difference does it make if someone believes something you chose not to. Now I could understand if he was berating you for your unbelief.

I think Dabo has earned the right to say whatever he feels when the camera is ok him.

And I think he has earned that trust from everyone to be the representative of Clemson University.
