Swinney says he thinks move to Big 12 won't happen, isn't beneficial for Clemson

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said Tuesday afternoon that a potential move to the Big 12 isn't beneficial for Clemson, has hurt recruiting, and that he doesn't think such a move will happen. Full Story »

"...he has paid for talking in public on more than one occasion already."

Really?

Dabo is fine with these comments. He is head coach, and darn right he has opinions on the matter and darn right he has the right to express them.

P.S. before you go there, I'm not a pro-ACC guy.. unless something drastic changes.


Fine...if we stay...If we don't he will look foolish.

The last coach at Clemson who publicly challenged the board and leadership was let go.


Okay, so first answer is, "no, not really".

No doubt the Big 12 talk is having some negative impact

It will not clear up until ....well .....it clears up.

If we make a move we do, if we dont't ....well. you know the answer there too.

The people that want to be Clemson people will be......you guessed it...CLEMSON

And if we play in the Japan league...we'll have a lot more fans and scholarship money.

If Clemson was as committed to the ACC as Dabo and other Univ leaders are saying publicly, they would be vocally and publicly leading the charge for all ACC members to sign a Grant of Rights (like the Big 12 did). That would INSTANTLY end all of these 'harmful' rumors of ACC teams leaving.

But there is no Grant of Rights in the ACC. Either the ACC leaders adore this instability OR too many teams refuse to sign a GOR because they are giving serious consideration to leaving.


Only B12 needs a GOR, BTW when r u going to sign for 13yrs?***

Only because you grew up in the 80's. Look at all our history. We used to be a cupcake game for UGA because we needed the money. Doubt many old-timers consider UGA a major rival. I agree it could become one if we were in SEC...

UNC, VT, UVA, Duke,and Miami- You will now be seeing them once every 3 years or so along with Pitt.

Wake isn't a game that gets the fans excited and neither is Maryland. NC State is ok and BC is a school with only history dating back to 2004.

6 division games
1 Fixed rival
2 rotating cross division games


You have 2 good games you'd leave behind- NC St and GT
You'd play one good opponent like UNC, VT, or Miami
You'd play one meh opponent like Duke, UVA, or Pitt

The PRESIDENTS of Mizzou and A&M talked at length about their dedication to the Big 12 and how much better of their programs were in the Big 12 right up until the day they left for the SEC.


Re: The HC would not be speaking out like this

Tuxedo, A&M was on the fence for more than a year. A&M came close to bolting for the SEC when Colorado and Nebraska were jumping out of the conference and it was widely known that Mizzou was hoping for a Big 10 invite during the same time period.

I'm not sure where you got your info but do some research on that. Gene Stallings is on the A&M BOT and given the time he spent at Bama, he was pushing for the SEC the entire time.


you could not be more wrong.

playoff system is in place. If it goes to the "4 best teams" model, there will be no way for anyone to get in without being undefeated unless they are SEC. Whether we are ACC or Big 12, it won't matter if we are one of five 12-1 teams.

so that perception is wrong as well.


Nope. LSU, Bama, OSU, Stanford

[1]
Posted: Jun 12, 2012 4:22 PM
 

All 1 loss.
All higher SOS.
All much more likely than a 1 loss VT.

SOS ranks on Sagarin-

LSU- 7
Bama- 15
OSU- 3
Stanford- 36
....
VT- 59

Maybe they might sneak in but that is hard to see happening. OSU, Stanford, Bama, and LSU all coming off wins vs bowl teams like OU, Cal, Auburn, and Arkansas.


Nope...VT was 5 going into the next to last


Posted: Jun 12, 2012 4:32 PM
 

LSU, Arkansas, Alabama and Ok State were above them. When they lost to us they fell to 11. Arkansas obviously lost to LSU. Stanford was significantly behind them at that point. Had VT won the ACC against us their SOS was going to increase and only stretch the lead over Stanford.

http://espn.go.com/college-football/bcs/_/week/13


SOS figure quoted includes Clemson

[1]
Posted: Jun 12, 2012 4:45 PM
 

VT might have snuck in over Stanford but the SOS makes it at best an uphill climb. It would depend on how much SOS factors in and how much polls do. Polls would favor VT, SOS favors the other 4.

Re: Wrong


Posted: Jun 12, 2012 4:33 PM
 

If Va Tech had beaten us in the ACC Championship game then their one loss would have been to a team that they then beat later in the season in a rematch. There is no way they wouldn't have gotten in ahead of an Okie State team that didn't play in a conference championship game.


Re: Wrong

[1]
Posted: Jun 12, 2012 4:57 PM
 

#1 VaTech didn't win its conference title game so that is a silly point

#2 Okie State's strength of schedule was #3. They played the 3rd hardest schedule in the ****ing country and had 1 loss. They would have had no problem staying ahead of VaTech (who was 59th in strength of schedule).

The BCS going into the last weekend was LSU, Arkansas, Alabama, Ok State and VT.


BCS formula may not be the same as the 4 team playoff

Posted: Jun 12, 2012 5:01 PM
 

Likely higher emphasis on SOS and less on polls would sink VT's bid.

If this is such a major issue and is actually causing long-term damage to the university, then he should have made sure that the appropriate parties (Barker, TDP, BOT) publicly addressed them in a clear and direct manner. They did exactly the opposite. If they said anything at all, it was of the nature of doing what is in the interest of the school, nothing clearly supportive of the conference.

I agree, and don't understand why it is so hard for Dabo to just not comment about this.

Literally all he had to say is that all the reports and Big 12 talk were from bloggers, and there is nothing to them. With that, he doesn't care, because his job is to have the team ready for Sept 1st against Auburn, defending our ACC Title, and taking back the State Championship. That is what he is focused on at this time, not all this hypothetical crap......

SERIOUSLY DABO, WHAT IS SO HARD ABOUT THIS????

clear the air as soon as possible. Our BOT and Prez and TDP all know if we are considering a move to the Big 12. If we are, Dabo needs to be in the loop to prevent this kind of thing. If we are not, they need to issue a statement to that effect - making it clear that we are absolutely not leaving the ACC; not the open-ended, wishy-washy "denial" they gave previously.

The problem is we can't make it clear we aren't leaving the ACC until we know exactly where FSU stands.

Clemson can't afford to be left behind in an FSU-less ACC. This is why we are leaving all of our options on the table. This is also why Dabo just needs to shut the #### up, at least for the rest of the summer!!!!!

And I am not sure Dabo is speaking out of turn.

I for one will believe what he says. He has shown he is terrific with recruiting and if he says this talk is hurting, I believe him. No matter what you think of the man, I can not think of a time when he has lied to us.


I do believe him. If his superiors are considering a

[1]
Posted: Jun 12, 2012 10:16 PM
 

move to the Big 12, they probably have not discussed it with him up until now. I'm not saying we are jumping, but if we are considering it, he certainly could not discuss it with or even hint at it to recruits, and any knowledge of it would put him in a position of having to lie or tap-dance around the truth when talking to recruits who ask about it.

Therefore, it would be reasonable to assume he's not been in the loop.

Also, what would you do if neither the Big 12 or the SEC wants Clemson? That is a possibility.

Follow the money:

Coach is right.

A move to the Big 12 is a bad idea.

Follow the money... It all goes to Austin.

The Longhorns have their own TV Network. They don't play well with others. This is why Texas A&M left. Imagine if our Tigers and the Gamecocks did not play. One of the great college rivalries ends year after next. This is what has happened in Texas...all because of the network and the flow of dollars.

It is not the Big 12. It is the Big One and eleven dwarfs. Anyone else joining just becomes a smaller dwarf.

Just win.

I'm not saying Clemson didn't look into the Big 12, but the move is orchestrated. I'm positive of that. Right before the playoff meetings... Clemson just assured the ACC of being a strong voice. If Swofford somehow mucks it up then the ACC has a problem, but basically this gave Swofford leverage to go into those meetings as a viable 5th conference. Best PR move of the summer by ACC and Clemson.


You're dead on. This was planned and calculated.***

I like what he says and I like the way he says it. He and the AD have more info than anyone. I trust them to do their jobs. It is the people on these boards who speculate without basis that are harming our recruiting and our program.

NO, the ### whippings by WV and SC are what has hurt our recruiting.

Allude. Allude. Not elude. Please stop embarrassing yourself.


Translation: I just won the ACCCG. Why would I leave?

Also heard a hint of thr old Bowden "parity" comment in there. Why would Dabo want to leave a weak ACC to play in what's been the best overall conference the last two years?

I like Dabo and have always agreed with his policies and defended him when any coot would start trash talking him. but in my opinion I wonder if he is scared to play in the big 12?

Short term: staying in ACC will help recruiting.
Long Term: staying in ACC will kill our recruiting.

But in the end no matter what conference we are in I will still be pulling for my Clemson Tigers!

Dabo has gotta come back down to reality. They don't care about our fanbase, our tradition, or any of that other crap Dabo spouted off about. If you aren't finishing in the top 4 or 5 you won't be playing for a national title. That's fact
