As LSU struggles with culture, Swinney's program keeps on humming

As LSU head coach Ed Orgeron kissed the National Championship Trophy last January and Joe Burrow smiled a million-dollar smile and Odell Beckham Jr. handed out cash like a lawyer handing out business cards at a car wreck, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney smiled for the cameras and admitted that LSU was the better team. What he didn’t say, but maybe should have, was that it’s harder to stay on top. Full Story »

true for any team trying to beat Bama in the SEC as long as Saban is there:

Great read. As I walked down Poydras St last year with LSU’s worst fans screaming in my/our faces that we sucked, rather than them enjoying their win, I had a smile on my face, as did a lot of Tigers leaving the Superdome. We knew our guys ran into a buzz saw, one that was likely assembled against NCAA rules, and that spring ball was only a few weeks around the corner. Most of us knew LSU was unstable program coached by an unstable comic book character, in a beautiful state that has a centuries long history of corruption and mismanagement.

Everyone cycles in and out. Our run will not last forever so we need to enjoy the consistency that has only been matched by one or two other program in the past 50 years. (Thinking Bama now and FSU of the 90s) Their demise is no surprise. They’ll be back in a few years once the scrutiny is over and they can reassemble a band of gypsies that will again flame out quickly.

I also had the Poydras Street experience as my daughter and I walked back to the Hilton... vulgarities, beer thrown at us, and as you said, LSU fans missing the opportunity to celebrate an accomplishment... instead, abusing other people. I wrote about it here on TigerNet and had several people tell me that I was a sore loser, never mind that I started by congratulating LSU and then simply stating facts. You are absolutely right in what you are saying. Hopefully, you won't get ripped about it.

Thumbs up for you

On point! Enjoy this unbelievable era of Clemson football. Stay humble during the good times. Just remember how pedestrian the Tiger program was the years after Danny Ford left town.
Every program has to rebuild at some point. When the time comes; Let’s hope Clemson’s rebuild doesn’t take on the type of look FSU is going through.

My feelings are that Dabo will retire from Clemson, and he will have a lot to do with who will be the next FB HC at Clemson, and I feel that it will be someone that Dabo believes, and trust can keep our FB program on point!!!

What you have to realize is that there are three elite programs in college football: Clemson, Alabama, and Ohio State. These teams will be good every year.
Other teams will have a great team every now and then when they have a group of experienced upper classmen that gel together: LSU last year and Notre Dame this year. LSU lost practically their entire first team to the NFL and to some players opting-out.
The same thing happens in basketball: UNC, Duke, Kansas. Then Virginia jumps up, then disappears.
In football, Notre Dame will disappear next year like LSU this year. The question is whether we can keep them from beating the elite teams this year.

Agree Ohio St is the third best team in the country over the past 5-10 yrs. but are they elite or just elite in the Big 10?

My take is Clemson beat arguably the best (most talented) team in Ohio St history - a lot of bucknuts were saying that before the game. Lots of butt hurt after the game as has been said before. As for LSU, last year’s team was exceptional on the field and peaked at the right time with two extremely talented coordinators, a precise QB and leader, and lots of junior/senior talent. All gone. Goodbye LSU.

Why do we all believe in Dabo and the Clemson Tiger football program. Read the article. It’s all there. ‘Nuff said. All In, everyone, all the time.

Reading this article made me think that Coach Swinney doesn't concern himself with "Output Metrics" as the world sees them. He does not focus on "Winning". He knows that winning is a BY PRODUCT of successful inputs! Recruit PEOPLE, hire PEOPLE, focus on you players as family and students first. I am especially fond of the "No Shortcuts" leadership statement. Success lies in doing things the right way. Proof is in the consistency! GO TIGERS!

Now, look. I don't know if Lawrence is a no. 1 NFL pick or not.I have no idea about the LSU program because once that game was over I have no interest in them. What I do know is what the writers for this board won't acknowledge, and that is Lawrence had an absolutely, stone cold dreadful game that night. It didn't help that our wideouts could not or did not get separation, but when they did, Lawrence was wide and high. It was surprising given his game against Alabama previously, but there it was. A horrible performance, Swinney's program or not. Now he has Notre Dame to acquit himself.

David Hood, this is the best article I've ever read about what Dabo's beliefs are, and how he carries himself day in and day out, and that being the reason that our FB program has been so successful. It is also IMO, this is an article that you should frame and give it to Dabo on his anniversary as becoming the Clemson FB HC, bc it speaks volumes about what has led our FB program to being so successful.

This is truly IMO the best that you've done about the Clemson FB program and the man who has built and sustained it.

Thank you, Mr Hood, and I believe that bc of Dabo's success, it has helped with you becoming a better sports writer!!!

It is the consistency of the program which is its keystone.

And its built with a brick-upon-a-brick-upon-a-brick attitude and methodology (i.e., all the parts and pieces described in the article). But, boys and girls, that makes for a formidable wall!

Go, Tigers! BYOG!

God, respect and constant reinforcement of those building blocks have brought this program to where it is today! These guys learn to love each other, their coaches and being the best they can be on and off the field. Dabo Swinney is a man of God and has reaped the benefits of believing that comes first and foremost. He and his program approach take kids from all walks of life and turns them into successful men. I admire him more that his successful football team.
