Bravo Tony and Dabo

[11]
Posted: Feb 27, 2013 9:30 AM
 

This week, Tony McNeal decided not to play football anymore. He decided it would be best for him to serve the team in a supporting role as an assistant.

As far as I know, Tony conducted himself well, remained focused and despite being regarded high enough to have transferred last off season prior to his acl tear, remained a Tiger. Bravo Tony, bravo!

As a RS sophomore, I imagine Tony has at least 2 years of school remaining. Is this not a big risk to take? Doesn't he risk losing his scholarship? Apparently not. Apparently, Dabo is true to his word. I expect nothing less from the head coach of my Tigers but none the less, I say Bravo Dabo! Why? It's simple. If Tony had Nick or Steve as his coach, he'd be packing his bags to make room for one of the 27 signees!

When a guy has a career ending injury, he can retain his scholarship as a medical hardship, and it doesn't count against the 85 limit. Saban does this all the time at Alabama to clear space, even when players aren't seriously injured or injured at all. Dabo only uses this procedure for real injuries.

There are few coaches out there with the character Dabo possesses.

I saw a report not long ago where all SEC coaches pull scholarships from kids who don't pan out. Not that they get kicked off the team, they just loose the scholarship. I believe there was one exception but cannot remember. If I find the report, I'll link it. To me, once you promise a kid a scholarship, you should honor it unless he violates team rules etc.

You are all over it, and I do believe Dabo lives by his word. All of us have seen this when some kids who were hurt, etc. remain on scholarship. Dabo is a man of honor, and that puts him a cut above so many who call themselves coaches and whose fan bases swoon over their lack of integrity.

many players who transfer for"playing time" or a dream "shot at the NFL" which is not likely for most guys who don't even make the 3-deep. Shows he has his head on straight and sees the value of a Clemson diploma over all those other options.

Easy decision for Dabo

Dabo gave him a medical hardship scholarship. Happens all the time at lots of schools. "Nick and Steve" both give out medical hardship scholarships. It is easy and doesn't count against the scholarship limit. While I really like Dabo this decision wasn't any different than any other coach would make. Tony is the guy who theoretically made the tough decision.
