He might win 34 NC at OK. If he does that, I'd say no. Not sure what the requirements are, but I wouldn't want a coach from another school on the Clemson RoH. Yes, BV was VERY instrumental in Clemson's success, but there has to be another way of honoring him. Just my 2 cents worth.
types of decisions should only be made after the lens of history has had at least a decade to calibrate itself after the person has retired.
A perfect example of this would be Coach Cookie Monster at LSWho. Right after he won that Natty, I am sure there was talk of statues outside the stadium and all sorts of honors. Fast forward just two years, and where is he now?
The Clemson Ring of Honor is almost a Lifetime Honorarium. Actions on AND off the football field to support and advance Clemson, etc, etc. When someone says the name of one enshrined there, the first thought that should come to anyone's mind is: CLEMSON.
Coach Venables will always be a favorite among ex-Clemson coaches. But, he cut his teeth at Oklahoma, and now he is once again BACK at Oklahoma, finally as the Head Coach. Pretty sure that after his career is over, he will be most remembered for his ties there, with Clemson a very memorable footnote.
Now, if he were to come back here as a Head Coach at some point, and have major success, then this subject would surely be revisited. But, for now, NO RING OF HONOR SOUP FOR HIM.
