Does asking a coach (rather politely it must be said) if he thinks he’s earning his salary make someone a “POS”? I’d say only if you are far, far too emotionally invested in the coach being asked the question.

I said similar in another thread. My son is currently serving (3 years in), and he tells me stories that would make you shake your head.

I went to school with guys that were POS in high school and are still POS now. One is currently in prison for attacking his wife with a machete (fortunately he didn't kill her). Ex-military doesn't always equal the son you wish you had.

I don’t think Dabos come back was inherently wrong. That is if there weren’t so many valid questions that need answers. Questions about coaching hires, what he plans to do about it are questions the majority of the fan base want answers to so when he attacked the only person that’s either been willing or allowed to ask them he attacked a piece of us.

For the record I wouldn’t have bothered to ask him was he worth his salary. First of all that’s just rude and secondly we all know the answer to that one.

Ole Judge Keller’s scoring of the Tyler/Dabo interaction sums the Jusge up. Dabo put a passive aggressive fan regurgitating Tigernet complainer themes in his place and the Judge scores it for Tyler.
This was so one sided that I am not so sure this was not a setup. Tyler repeats 80% of the complainers chorus and Dabo responds.

Tyler was completely out of line and disrespectful. He thinks because he’s a “fan” that entitles him to speak to another man however he likes just because that other man is the “coach.” His anonymity makes it all the easier for him to do it. He wasn’t just critical of “coaching” decisions. He got personal with Coach Swinney. It was classless and pathetic.

I’ll also say that if Tyler was in the military, I certainly wouldn’t want him in any foxhole with me. Spoiled front runners are a scary lot. They hug your neck when things are good, but they cut your throat at the slightest hint of discomfort to them. Dabo said they are 1.5%. He was wrong. They comprise a lot more of the Clemson fanbase than that. They are the sorry element that treated Ken Hatfield like a pariah. They are the type that put moving signs in the coach’s front yard and ominously drive past the coach’s house a in wait after a loss to the wrong team or the wrong game. I dislike their frontrunner attitude so much that if they represented the entirety of of the Clemson fanbase, I’d happily root for Clemson to lose every game until every last one of them ran away like the dishonorable frontrunners they are.

A tipping point with being unappreciative for his massive ego, his hubris, his constant falsehoods, and his complete disdain for the fans, as seen by this very call we are discussing. Simply by this caller asking a reasonable question about his salary, Dabo felt the need to belittle that guys life and accomplishments as well as indicating he didn’t care what any fans thought. This was just massive narcissism exposed in one explosive instant.

He thinks he IS Clemson University and sadly, many of you agree.

People who have performed tremendously in high pressure jobs, spend the time to be mentors to ‘subordinates,’ take chances on hiring lesser qualified former ‘tutored students,’ and unceasingly perform public relations acts … and who keep doing this long after they have secured the finances of their family for multiple generations and having achieved the pinnacle of job performance in their chosen profession … MUST, as a basic personality trait, have a massive ego.

Why else would the ‘tremendous performer’ keep on working at the job in the face of criticism, when instead he could cash in his chips and just say good bye?

Here is where the ice gets thin. After the last Swinney boy graduates, how much longer does anyone expect Dabo to hang around if he’s facing an avalanche of feces from a growing percentage of entitled fans?

Dabo haters, be careful what you wish for.

Clemson isn’t going to go to either the SEC (we don’t add value to them) or B1G (facts are that our academic credentials don’t cut it to be invited to them). Clemson will forever be a second class citizen vis-a-vis the SEC and B1G teams; we will never have the wealthy alumni resources of places such as Notre Dame.

As the resource disparity between Clemson and the ‘rich’ schools grows, our FB success rate SHOULD fall in inverse proportion. The partial equalizer for us is the culture driven program that Dabo, quite frankly, built by himself. Neither Frank nor Charley nor Danny nor Ken nor Tommy were able to pull off the ‘culture + winning’ achievement that Dabo did.

I believe that we have settled into a slot where 10+ win seasons will occur a minority of times; appearances in the expanded CFP will happen once every five years; another National Championship may occur during the remaining lifetimes of Clemson fans who are younger than ~ 65 years old.

I also believe that it won’t get better under another coach. On the contrary, Clemson is likely to slide back into the status of better than average, but not much better, that was our history with the exception of the Charley Pell (cheater) and Danny Ford (questionable as far as cheating) regimes.

Great program builders and program sustainers do not grow on trees. Ask FL, FSU, TN, TX, ND, OH State, Bama, Auburn, aTm, etc, etc. The great coaches are acquired by paying them more (outbidding) other schools, along with having an opening at the right time. If Clemson, having regressed into the realm of the above-average, were to compete for a Nick Sabin type coach against a OH State or ND, we would lose out.

None of this long horrible post is meant to say that Dabo is above criticism. Believe it or not, Bama fans are publicly griping about Sagan.

The lesson in all of this is that one aspect of Dabo’s criticism of Call In Tyler is resoundingly true: Clemson fans (nor any other fans) are ENTITLED to having top four teams every year or ten. For those who are tired of Dabo and his act, be careful what you wish for. Dabo doesn’t need us; we need him.

I agree 110%! Dabo has been great for Clemson until now, but if that rave is his true current feelings, he needs a time out and a serious stare into a mirror! I don’t agree with Tyler’s choice to question Dabo’s salary, but Dabo did NOT display ANY of the character the he has been using as a recruiting point for players with his personal attack on Tyler! Clemson’s “powers that be” need to call him on this one! THIS WAS NOT IN CLEMSON’S BEST INTEREST!! Sorry Dabo, I have always loved Clemson and until now greatly respected you, but your rant was not professional and uncalled for. This rant totally did nothing for Clemson and was a very poor reflection on your character. If Dabo can’t control his emotions any better than this, what example is he setting for our players? There is a saying that says 2 wrongs don’t make a right. This is the epitome of that! No one won in this exchange. Just for the record though, I am and always will be a Clemson Tiger fan!

You seem to imply that Tyler was some refined, English noble in how he asked his “questions,” if you can call them that. He didn’t ask all that many questions as he used most of his call to make statements of opinions and go on his own “tantrum” of entitlement. Asking “questions” is fine, but just because someone is a “public figure” doesn’t mandate they be treated with blatant disrespect while the disrespectful questioner stays blanketed by the anonymity of being “Tyler from Spartanburg.”

“Appreciation”: Dabo Swinney had a vision for taking Clemson football into the big time, and he did it. In the lucrative world of elite college football, he is worth every penny he is paid—and not just because of the national championships, but also because he cares about his players beyond what they do on the field. Thank you, Dabo, for our success. Thank you for your leadership and your values.

“Expectation”: Based on recent history, it is natural that we will be expected—every year—to be ACC champions, which gives us a good chance to wind up in the College Football Playoffs. Success like we’ve had under Dabo creates those expectations. And that is the whole problem this year for fans.

“Disappointment”: We struggled on offense the last two seasons, so decisive Dabo replaced Streeter as Offensive Coordinator with Broyles Award winner Garrett Riley. Cade Klubnik, who showed huge promise last year, replaced a dissapointing D.J. Uiagalelei in the most visible position on a football team. So we fans EXPECTED an explosive offense this year that would dominate opponents. But that offense has been so bad—for all kinds of reasons—that we fans are beyond disappointment.

The Wise Response: Any fan has the right to ask the question Tyler did on Dabo’s radio show. Dabo should have seen it coming, and his answer should have been: “Tyler, thank you for your question, which I am sure is on the minds of a lot of our awesome fans. All I can say is, whatever I am paid, you are going to get a coach who cares about Clemson University and about his players, and who is just as disappointed as you are. We are not going to stop giving everything we have to make our program something to be proud of.”

Bland response? Yep. But if he had said that—and by the way, it would have been sincere—then there would not be all this noise on the Internet.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Re: kid said he served in the military.


Oct 31, 2023, 2:12 PM

Indeed, Dabo’s response clearly was an impulsive, triggered one.

This reveals what we know about every other human being on earth: Neither Dabo, nor anyone else, is perfect.

Dabo’s response to Call in Tyler not withstanding, we Clemson fans need to take some other matters into account:

Recruiting success is the single most important factor in college FB success. Look no further than Auburn / Chizik - 2010 and LSU / Orgeron - 2019.

For programs such as Clemson who will never be able to keep pace with the truly wealthy colleges that also have legendary (great) FB programs, continuity in the ranks of assistant coaches is critical. Loyalty indeed cuts both ways; HC’s who justify their reputations as being loyal to their assistant coaches typically enjoy reciprocal loyalty. (It is not disloyal for an assistant coach to accept a HC position at another school.)

Dabo, by virtue of his unusual loyalty to position coaches who had previous positive experiences at Clemson, is trying to maximize the loyalty factor so that, in the event that another school tries to lure one of our assistants (and along with the AC the key players that he is recruiting), that Dabo will be given the courtesy of a ‘right of last refusal’ to make a counter offer to keep the AC on his coaching staff. THIS is a great help with overall recruiting success.

As for call in shows when fans blast Dabo and his AC’s, this hurts with recruiting. If Dabo were to be polite and respond empathetically to a critical caller, and accordingly agree that ‘Clemson’s assistant coaches are not great coaches, but they are good men,’ then try to imagine the negative impact that would have on recruiting -&- confidence that his AC’s would have in Dabo as ‘having their backs.’ It would be unimaginably stupid if Dabo had taken the ‘be empathetic to frustrated fan’ response instead of the Un empathetic ‘don’t worry, all is fine’ response.

In summary, a bland, vapid response would have been better than his fiery, over the top, unnecessary bragging defensive response. But the worst possible response would have been if Dabo agreed with Call in Tyler.

No, I think he is mad because after his first mediocre to poor season he’s had in 13 years, spoiled frontrunners refuse to show him even a modicum of grace. The man has won 165 games in 15 years at Clemson a fairly above average football team that had been irrelevant, both regionally and nationally for two decades before he took the job. He didn’t do all this at Texas or Ohio State or Southern Cal, Notre Dame, Michigan, or Alabama. He did it at all, as he has well said many times, at “little ole’ Clemson.”

Yes, Clemson University. A regional, land grant university agrarian and technical university located in a small southern town, in a corner of a small, rural county, in one of the smallest and poorest states in the nation. He did it all at a relatively small to average sized university that has achieved good to, on the very rare occasions, great levels of gridiron football success for a select few decades in125+ years of fielding a school team. And, he did it all at a school that has made football its priority while being a forever “also ran”founding member of an athletic conference widely and heavily known for it rich tradition, unparalleled success, and rabid passions for BASKETBALL. For the majority of the vast majority of the ACC, football was just something you did until the really important sport began in the winter.

All that being said, I think he’s entitled to a little bit of grace and respect for the occasional bad season, as well as being entitled to tell frontrunners like Tyler to go pound sound.

If Dabo decides to leave there is a good chance that it will be worse than when Ford was fired. Clemson as a University is not built to thrive in the NIL world. It is a school not located in a major metro area. So is Penn State and Texas A&M. Those schools have huge alumni bases compared to Clemson. It was not that long ago that Clemson only had 12,000 undergrads. I am not sure there is a single billionaire who is a Clemson graduate, let alone one that wants to dump their money into a college football team.

Clemson is not able to compete with the other elite teams with a me too approach. Dabo is willing to do things his way instead of copy catting everyone Granted his way is not working this year. If he leaves and we get some “Let’s do what Bama and Georgia do” person , we will be lucky to be a perennial 8-4 team. Tx A&M has deep pockets to afford who they want and have a CFP winning Coach yet they are still a perennial 8-4 team.

Dan Lanning is a good young coach. Unless Phil Knight dies, he would be a fool to leave Oregon for anything other than Bama, Georgia, OSU, SoCal, Notre Dame or Michigan.

I fully expect that the “Dabo needs to go” crowd will get what they want in the next couple of years. He already didn’t like where the game is headed, now he does not feel appreciated by the fans for what he has clearly accomplished.

Yeah right! Sweeney is the winningest coach in Clemson football history and that’s why he gets paid $10.5M a year! This year is a down year and Clemson has not played well. Tyler was out of line. Questioning Dabo’s ability and comparing him to a mediocre former coach is flawed and nasty based on 2008 to 2023 overall results. Who has been better at Clemson? Dabo needs to finish the year as strong as possible, then address program after the season.

Buttholes like you and Tyler will wind up running off the greatest coach this program will ever see. SMH. Coach has equity, money in the bank. Even Fortune 500 companies have down years sometimes. Coach Swinney will adjust and right the ship, that is if you crybabies don't tick him off enough to leave first...

What part about the fumbles issues are you missing? Neither Vince Lombardi or any other coach would be able to look good with all of those. WITHOUT the fumbles, we aren’t even having these rants. Geez gang.

Tyler's reach exceeds his grasp. He went about it in a very wrong manner. He isn't smarter than a fifth grader.

If Dabo believes that he is exempt for criticism in his profession, then maybe he should do something else. Look, we are all pissed and dissatisfied in what we are seeing on tbe field. But as a man Dabo can defend his record and state his accomplishments. However, he is a representative of Clemson university and the tirade tonight makes him look small in the grand scheme of things. I mean so what, a fan says you make too much money to be 4-4. You have to reply and say thanks for call Tyler, we will keep doing everything in out power to fix this. That's it. Don't engage people like that. This will go national and Dabo will be painted as a softy that got his feelings hurt by a caller on a radio show.

In 2011, I’m sure no one had a problem when Dabo went on a tirade against Spurrier. He was defending his program then just like he did against this guy, Tyler. No difference in my opinion. Tyler and Spurrier no different. And before someone says “but Tyler is a fan”, well we don’t know that. Plus, even if he is, calling in and being personal towards Dabo and emphasizing all the negatives without, maybe, first thanking him for all he’s done for Clemson, the guy’s a disrespectful, unappreciative punk. Snow flake who needs a safe space and would never say that to his face. That is all.

Actually this is more like when he called the fans quacking ducks back then, and people definitely had a problem with it.

You're also revising history by saying nobody had a problem with his rant about spurrier, because there were people on this site complaining that he was deflecting from a loss by ranting about Spurrier. Lol

Dabo lashing out just makes himself look petty and small. It was already on the local news channels this morning. Only a matter of time before the national outlets get hold of it. It's not a crap record that is going to end up costing us recruits it Dabo and his mouth. You don't think Saban, Smart, Day, Novell and these other coaches are loving this? "Dabo is becoming unhinged" will be the line they start using with recruits. Or they'll say "look at how he treats is fans in public, how do you think he's going to treat your son when you're not around."

There it is again. "I've never failed at anything". It's not a lie if you believe it I guess, but nothing's going to change because he believes he hasn't done anything wrong and can't do anything wrong.

Amazing what fireworks happen the minute he hears what's being said outside the Football complex bubble.
