This headline is driving this issue and it came from ONE disgruntled fan standing off to the side while a GROUP of Clemson fans celebrated. Unfortunately, the minority gets the headline. This is typical of reporting today on the national scene, but disappointing to see it from one of our own. My opinion, the headline creates the picture that this statement represented the majority Clemson fan base last night and it didn't. It then gets pushed in front of our coach.
Concern about pass defense - yes. Much different than feeling like a loss.
Most fans stayed to the end last night to enjoy five in a row. As the last seconds ticked off last night, the cheering Tiger fans didn't give the impression the win felt like a loss.
Maybe David felt like the one disgruntled fan instead of the group of Clemson fans celebrating near by.
Totally agree. Upvoted it. But the buzz is not from that

comment, or from the fact that it was reported. It is coming from the fact that a coach who gets paid more in a month than most people do in 10 years said maybe he needs to be somewhere else, and that some people pissed in their pants when he said it.
I think he should be asked to walk that comment back, and I think he should.
Upvoted. Yes, I would like to think that this is the Dabo

I think I know.
But if that is the case, why have the perfectionist mentality about the fans? Let them be imperfect too, eh? Threatening to leave is very strong language, and for a guy who was given a HC job when no one else even knew who he was, that's a short memory. If he thought about it for 15 seconds he would know that no coach anywhere has the support he does, and that fans who pay for a $7 million salary can be forgiven for saying that 600 yds is a bit much. If imperfection is allowed, he can speak more accurately too, no?
Dabo will never have to pay 5 figures for the right to pay 4 figures for a ticket to see a game. And thats okay. But he can let a few comments go without threatening to leave, I think.
I see that point, but you and I will likely just disagree on

that for this reason:
The money that pays the obscene and unjustified salaries comes from the over the top emotions generated by the sport. People care so much about what kids do on the field that they will donate 5 and 6 figures for the right to buy tickets that then cost 4 figures. If we simply enjoyed watching football, the money generated would pay coaches what the position is worth, something in 6 figures, not multi 7.
If one accepts the multi 7 figures, one accepts the over the top emotions that generate that money. You can't say, "Hell, I'm oughta here!" To where, exactly?
I may be in the minority on this one , but I can both celebrate a big win and a great accomplishment AND feel as though we played very poorly in some aspects . We did . Our defensive game was off . Tip my hat to 5-Head and also go throw confetti over my head celebrating a perfect season . Article was just an article .
