Ironic, fB teams would be safer in a player only dorm, same living format Danny Ford

pushed for over & over and even had a beautiful architectural drawing of..but was fired for pushing it too far..

Oh, another “minor” reason for his firing was having been charged & found guilty for recruiting violations (of which Charlie Pell did the most of but Danny was the fall guy).

Plus, probably the President wasn’t a big supporter.

Danny wanted to replicate what Bammer was doing at the time with players, keep them under one roof and keep tabs on their every move for the good of the Team..thus possibly more wins.

They were declared a distinct problem[& prohibited from continuing] by NCAA before DF was fired. No question that Danny pushed the CU supporters to demand it of Max Lennon and the Bd. of Trustees. He became an enemy of the university in their eyes and maybe those of Bobby Robinson, the in-place AD. The latter did the deed of firing at Lennon's order. Had the AD been closer to Danny, he could possibly have persuaded him to drop his vocal assault and demands on the school's administration; he wasn't and he did not do so. Thus, we endured the Ken Hatfield and Tommy West eras. If Danny had created a strong foundation, it was undermined very soon in their tenures. Probably set back Clemson FB recruiting at least 5+ years. C. Pell and his departing staff did us no favors either.

LBB, your post brings back a dark time for me. Although
I have always been a Clemson fan, it took me 10+ years
to get over the firing of Danny. I know that he resigned
but you know how that works.I'm glad we finally found a
coach with the same winning attitude.

This will start a food fight but I'm O.K. with that. Colleges were formed for academia reasons only. Athletics came along and added to the atmosphere. Athletic dorms give athletes better living conditions. They already receive better meals. Athletes should not receive all around better treatment than any other student. That won't ever happen though.

The irony is FB dorms were ended by NCAA......

Maybe Pres and/or AD had insight that was going to happen is why they didn't want to burn the resources.


He went to the mat for something that did not exist soon after he was gone.
