Is Dabo a PR genius?........

I watched several different spring games yesterday. And they were all the same except ours. No kickoffs, no punt returns, no rushing the QB or place kicker. Boring announcers in the booth trying to find something to talk about. Same old boring 50 yard line camera angles, etc,etc.

Then here comes Dabo. Nationally televised spring game and he really shows out. Invites the announcers and camera men down on the field. He gives feedback on plays and often let the announcers know the play in advance. Allowed good interviews with coaches and past players on the field. Basically played the game just like a real game except for tackling the QB. It was just like a real game. Lots of action and hitting.

I have a feeling the whole nation was entertained and impressed more by Clemson’s spring game than by any of the other boring ones. It had a totally different perspective.

I think he’s a genius. He knows how to play to his audience.

You should never chalk up to conspiracy what you can reliably attribute to stupidity. Because stupidity is a much more powerful force in the course of human events.

Yeah, but will we have them play it all year (replays on ESPiNU) like the year the coots had that Top 5 class under Spurrier. Way to capitalize, capons.

Damn, maybe Dabo missed his calling in something like sales or marketing. Think he would ever consider a career there?


My guess is that his college football coaching gig

I Thought there was a little to much talking during the plays...

I love Dabo as much as you do, but do you think that's really the way it played out. Was ESPN really going to send their top personalities like Herbstreit and Galloway to Fayetteville Arkansas to stand on the field with Morris to see him practicing a 6-6 team?

I'll say the Orange And White was really fun to watch this year and I loved the on field interviews but I'm sure Dabo wasn't directing Marty Smith around the field to make Clemson look cool.

+1 however, Dabo's charisma is what made espn change it up this year. I think the point is no other coach could have pulled it off, and espn has been around him long enough to know it.


Pretty sure Saban's head exploded watching this game.

The kind of on the field interaction that Dabo had with the announcers was so foreign to Lil Nicky, it might as well have been on the moon.
