When we win the bowl game


Posted: Dec 3, 2012 11:29 PM
 

Will there still be some idiots who think we should fire a coach who is about to sign another stellar recruiting class and just won 10 games (I understand we didn't beat anyone). Do said idiots realize that if we fire a coach who won 10 games and was on the verge of signing another top recruiting class we would not only be the laughing stock of the entire college football world, but no self respecting coach would ever come to Clemson again, where winning 10 games gets you fired.

Depends on who it's to and in what fashion.

People are going to gripe until we beat good teams. Beating the brakes off of Duke, Maryland, Wake, Boston College etc is only going to be satisfying for so long, especially when you're losing to your ranked opponents.

And then there's the whole losing to the Coots 4 years in a row, which most of us have never experienced before.

Last year, we beat a few good teams, but go absolutely destroyed by 4 mediocre programs. This year, we beat the chit out of the schools of the deaf and blind, but can't close the deal when we have 2nd half leads against our two good opponents. It's an emotional roller coaster.

Were you not critical after the USUCK loss? I thought I remembered you being....


Critical but not insane

Firing a 10 win coach, regardless of who they beat, is a P.R. nightmare. Would you want to coach at Clemson if losing to two top 15 teams in a season meant you were getting fired?

Oh no. Dabo doesn't get fired this year period. Don't agree with that.

What's your take on next year. How many of 1) beat Coots 2) win ACC 3) win bowl game does he have to achieve?

Is another loss to the Coots acceptable if we win the ACC? What about if we lose to the Coots, win the ACC and then lose the bowl game?

Where is the line drawn when it comes to losing to the rival.

That's the type of questions I think we're going to be asking heading into the season....esp if we can't pull it out vs. LSU


If we win the ACC we can't fire him

Again, if you win your conference and fire your coach, what type of coach are you going to attract. I hate USCe more than most, but they are a good team, it's not like we are losing to Wake or Vandy every season. The only way Dabo's job even warm next season is if he wins, 8 games and loses to USCe. Even then, I think it takes a 6 win season to get him canned, and I don't see that happening with our talent.

I definitely agree with the not firing a coach after a conference title. But you have to wonder if prospective coaches don't see the ACC for what it is and understand that...even if you win the ACC..to be a big time program you have to beat your rival and win bowl games.

Anyway. I also think it would take a pretty bad season for him to be gone.


Still think about it

You only play 2 top 15 teams, next year 3, and you have to win them or you get canned. A&M played 3 top 15 teams and lost 2 of them at home. If Bama came back and beat them, would Sumlin's job been in danger?

Oh you're right.

I just want to win them all. And I hope Dabo can get the program to a point where that's the expectation.


We have a shot to win them all next season

That's all you can really ask for in my opinion.

So that wasn't FSU playing GT in the ACC Championship game? Good job, you lost to the best team in your league and you try to hang your hat on a division title?


I'm confused about the point you are attempting to make***

still not getting a whiff at ANYTHING??

Fact is troll, Clemson did tie for the division title but the tiebreaker (head to head loss) ensured the better of the two teams won.

This is what you get when the Mods open the gates and let the coots come in an do and say what ever they please about our school and fans. Another two years if a serious change hasn't been made to what other school fans can come in here and say as they please. This site/board will collapse like a wet box.

I love our Tigers, but if we beat LSU, I will be too busy
