Let Us Choose Our Words Carefully

[108]
Posted: Sep 25, 2018 8:49 PM
 

KB is experiencing a situation that many of us have faced sometime during our life. We are the Clemson Family and he needs our support. We sometimes forget that mere words can be just as fatal as a dagger and there have been several daggers thrown at KB. Let us emphasize his contributions to Clemson, both as a member of our football team and as an ambassador for Clemson University. There are many QBs on Power 5 Conference teams who envy his 16 - 2 win/loss record as our starting QB. Let us choose words expressing our appreciation for his contributions in the past and look forward to his being a vital part of our program in the future. A kind word in a situation such as this can quite often be the best medicine one could prescribe.

Well said, Mr. Joe!


A kind word fitly spoken is like

apples of gold in pictures of silver.

KB is probably reading all these posts- Good and bad.

Notice this- Solomon, a man full of wisdom, tells us that a kind word, spoken at the right time, is worth millions to someone. Apples (plural) of gold in pictures (plural) of silver.

Kelly Bryant- love you man! Keep digging!


Oh oh! My word is "eucatastrophe"!

He is really 16-1. You can't count a loss against him in which we lost the game because he got knocked out.

I always said the same about Watson where he was credited for losing the start against GT when he tore his ACL. He left that game up 3-0 in the 1st quarter while driving to add another score.

True fans appreciate ALL the players, no matter what happens. Either we have a lot of bad fans on TigerNet, or we are being subverted by Russian psyops holed up in Columbia. Russian Coots, can you imagine?


Better Idea: Don't post your opionions about KB on TNET

It shows a lack of self-control when fans act like drama-queens about the life of a college-kid.

Leave it be, none of your opinions matter. All you can do by posting about it on TNET (or any social media outlet) is hurt KB.

Your/our opinions don't matter with regards to what KB is going through. He's a high-character person and he'll handle it with class.

If we want to help KB why don't we try by not posting about KB until after the next game.


In respone to me

So clearly KB had other plans if he wasn't the starter. In retrospect that makes him a "situational teamate". I hate it, but that's the truth.

He was a great player, kid, and Tiger. I'm disssapointed he pulled the plug on his career at Clemson.

Leaving the way he did makes him look like a quitter. TL might get injured next week for all we know. What about the rest of the team, what happens "his boys" so to speak, then?

I get that KB wants to start, but he'll have to beat soembody else out next season and chances are if he does he still won't get drafted. The NFL is a loooooooooooong shot, actually its a fantasy.

I don't think he ever expected to lose the starting job. I just hope that he's leaving because he believes he has a better chance of making it to the NFL somewhere else. If he doesn't, then he probably just made an emotional decision and a big mistake.

So true. I feel confident that Kelly will evaluate all of

Kelly needs our support and encouragement now more than he ever did when he was the starter. Let's rally around him and support him in whatever decision he feels is best for his future.

Quit babying him. No other player that gets moved to 2nd string gets to take days off. This is not good fo the TEAM! Did Feaster and Choice take days off. NO!

It seems he got the day off because he was talking about transferring to Dabo and Dabo told him to take off practice to give him more time to make sure that is what he wanted to do. NOT to go have a good cry.

Kelly Bryant basically, was going to quit if he was not the starter, and Dabo wanted him to think about it


Re: Let Us Choose Our Words Carefully

Excellent post. Whether we choose to believe it or not, these young men listen to the negativity on the radio and read it here on Tigernet. We all as human beings have a basic need to feel appreciated.

Joe21® Well said! The folks not choosing their words carefully "are not all in" with what Coach Swinney has built the football program on. Including but not limited to: family, commitment, transparency, honesty, etc. You know if you come to Clemson you are going to have to work your butt off to get and keep a starting job. B/C as in this case, new talent is hitting campus each year! It keeps everyone hungry and wanting to prove themselves. Well KB won games which according to the analyst who fall in love with certain NFL QB's no matter how bad they play; "it matters if you win or not"! Well 16-2 as a starter is something 90% or better of college football programs would die for in a starting QB. He got outplayed and I believe TL should be the starter! But, some of the comments are out of hand.

You don't have to like him; but why throw dirt on him is my thing? Just go non-chalantly about your business and see what happens. All of us here wants what's best for Clemson and the young men/women involved in the program! We should support them even when they going through a tough time; even if they aggravate us! That's what family does.


The folks getting really ugly would turn on TL too if "they thought something newer or shinier" would give them more bragging rights at the water cooler, LOL! IDGI - why kick him when he is down? He hurting ( ego ) enough; just keep the ugly comments to yourself!

Very true. Constructive criticism can be very useful, but the outright attacks on ANY CLEMSON FAMILY MEMBER should be very closely scrutinized by the mods of Tnet.

The mods should be ashamed of themselves for allowing some of these nasty personal stabs at Kelly Bryant.


I don’t advocate slander, but he got demoted not cut.

For crying out loud. KB did everything he could for his team and us. I respect that. I’m forever grateful to him. If I met him in person I’d tell him thank you and nothing more.

But I don’t believe in coddling the young man either. He’s got to face this like a man, head up, shoulders square.

Well said sir!

KB was MVP of the ACC Championship game, tied single game records, and IS a true leader for our Tigers!

Not every conversation in life is enjoyable, but that doesn't mean our support, faith, and love is any different. Rather it simply makes one stronger!

God Bless KB and our Tigers... we love ya KB2!


Joe you and dug and several more are so

great at putting what I'm thinking at times into words. You are precisely correct.

I agree, and get where KB may be emotional


Posted: Sep 26, 2018 10:07 AM
 

I love the guy, and respect him for what he has overcome in his personal life and what he's done for our program.

The decision on who is the starter is strictly business, and he's going to have to figure out how to process that if it is upsetting to him. As was stated by Joe21 we've all been through something like this, and it's just messy to deal with on an emotional level...no other way to put it.

As usual, words of wisdom, Joe. I only wish you could have gotten that message across to Kelly before he took cheap shots at the staff. I fear that he will learn a big truth in life: you can't "unspeak" words...

Bulllcrappa. . . . he is a product of the generations being nurtured now. You got what you wanted, when you treat the kids they way they are treated today.


Re: Let Us Choose Our Words Carefully

He has my support, but not a 100% bc I will never support the slap in the face comment. Even when hurt and angry, we still must chose our words carefully in front of the media, even as a young adult. And as a Clemson graduate, he is an adult, and it was his choice to walk away without a fight....

I can remember being Kelly's age and how I reacted to obstacles in life. I had trouble controlling my temper and often said things I wish I could take back now. The comments he made are far nicer than some things I said.

But that doesn't excuse it, in my opinion. It's not a slap in the face to be demoted when you've been outplayed. Football is about the team, not the individual, and Dabo made that clear on his first day as head coach. That's what "All In" is supposed to mean - everyone working for the same goals: win the division, win the conference, win the bowl game, and win the National Championship. If you get demoted, work harder to earn that spot back. Cutting and running when you don't get your way means you were never "All In."

I won't badmouth Kelly. He's a fine young man and a talented football player, and I hope he does well wherever he ends up (unless it's SCU or Mizzou, lol). He just has some lessons to learn moving forward, like every college kid.
