If the day ever comes that the Clemson nation ever doubts Dabo’s football leadership, his character has earned a unlimited number of passes.

I don’t care if we ever win another game Dabo should be our coach until he voluntarily leaves, and we should be in 100% support of him no matter what the win-loss record is.

I teared up a little on that one. I guess you have to have a kid to understand.

I have two sons, and I cried like a little girl.

I'm glad guys like Dabo are out there leading young men.


I've said it a lot of times. I'd rather lose with Dabo than

win with a lot of other coaches. As far as I am concerned he can coach her as long as he wants to.

Maaaan, that feature really got me. Hearing that KT never complained throughout his struggle is an inspiration. So glad Dabo is looking out for Nolan. How lucky we are to have such amazing leadership. Go Tigers!!


Kevin Turner was an awesome man!

Nolan has so much to be proud of about his Dad!


Words will not suffice for the ultimate sorrow & then grace in this story..

But Tears help wash away some of the heartfelt pain suffered by the Turner Family..especially after DaBO intervenes & shows his love to KT by bringing Son Nolan into the Clemson Family!

There are 85 scholarships to give out. If our coaches offer a kid, please respect their decisions. This staff has earned it.


Always need to use all 85 in the Fall

the mid-year replacement rule requires it. That let’s us go over 85 in the spring with early enrollees and graduating seniors overlapping. Otherwise, the number of early enrollees would be limited by the 85 cap.

Man that was a tear jerker. Prayers for Nolan and his family as they try to keep the pieces together. God Bless Dabo for stepping up and being the man we all know him to be

i cannot believe the lack of progress we've made with ALS

Absolute brutal death sentence diagnosis and we can barely do anything to lessen the horror of it.

Sadly there doesn't seem to be any real progress in preventing, treating or curing this horrible disease, but Greenville is fortunate to have a clinic that assists patients in managing the disease by having multiple specialists at one address. This allows patients to coordinate appointments which reduces the time & energy they must expend in simply getting to medical appointments. One of our middle school librarians was diagnosed about 4 years ago, and some of our high schools have raised significant amounts of money to benefit the clinic in her honor.


This is just one of the many reasons that we love coach Swinney.

That’s the second time I cried this morning... After the story about Tyler and Purdue on game day this morning I don’t see how anyone can be cheering for OSU tonight

have ANY degree of good health, you are wildly blessed.

I gotta remember to tell myself that 1000 times a day.

Dear Lord - thank you for my health. Encourage & make Your presence known to those who don’t.

Amen.

Dabo is a great human being. I love that far more than his coaching. Some things are much bigger than sports & stories like this remind us of that.


I am more proud of this than one million wins.***
