The Graduate Student Government. I'm seriously embarrassed I attended Clemson University at this point . The past 2 years at Clemson have been filled with nothing but negative attention and trouble.

The problem with people like this is that any attempt to repair anything at this point is misguided


not the same school I attended. What a shame***

is not JUST an opinion...it's disregard for an opinion.

Sorry they wasted their panties,

students in Clemson are international students (at least in engineering) who probably don't care about Football...and now they want to attack our coach?

I'd love to see if this particular stance of graduate student government represents all the grad students. If these are the kinds of students (and professors) who are benefitting from Alumni donations, then I don't know if it's even worth donating anymore.

Why did we need a second thread about the same letter?


Pres. Clements should probably get his house.....

in order, the political correctness displayed by the administration is backfiring and about to blow up......and none of it is Dabo' s fault. I believe we have some academia's that have a bad case of butt hurt regarding the success of the football program!

And a lot of butt hurt on here because some Clemson

people have a different opinion on the subject than Dabo.

It's way beyond that. Someone saying "I think the way Kapernick chose to protest is fine", would be having a different opinion than Dabo. These people aren't stating a different opinion, they are basically saying Dabo's opinion is wrong and offensive and negatively affecting the public, and demanding an apology to the students, faculty, alumni, community-at large (because Dabo talked about how great Martin Luther King was???). They are bringing unwarranted negative attention to Dabo and Clemson. People are now questioning whether they should continue to donate to Clemson because they don't want to support these students that claim they are offended at everything and then make demands to appease them.

I'm sorry,

but if the KKK had written that letter to Willie Taggart or Willie Simmons

I'd call it the same.

Off the subject, those who watched the ESPN Megacast

got to see Taggart at his best. He more than held his own in there,

and came out looking much better than Muschump and Fedora.

Good guy..... smart guy....


I am ok with them sending the letter.

However, sign your names to it if you truly believe in what your doing. Let the alumni see your name. Don't hide behind an organization. Let those potential future employers know who you are if you want to make a brave stand.


my first thought too***

My understanding is that it was from only 2 people


Posted: Sep 15, 2016 8:33 PM
 

And against the wishes of the majority. The others are upset that they spoke for the group instead of as individuals.


Then let them put out a real letter from the real group.


Posted: Sep 16, 2016 1:55 PM
 

Otherwise, it speaks for them.

I am asking the Clemson University Graduate Student Government to use your credibility to issue an apology to the students, alumni, faculty and community at-large for which your words have had negatively affected.

What a group of panty wastes to send a letter like this.


Unfortunately they did not address the sin problem in


Posted: Sep 16, 2016 1:23 PM
 

America nor did they compliment Dabo on the love your neighbor part of the answer. This letter is seriously lacking multiple perspectives.

I'm offended that you're offended and therefore you owe me an apology...

Dabo's words haven't negatively affected me the slightest bit, and he absolutely does not owe me an apology. I still have no idea how anybody could take offense from what he said.

I read about this in the paper today, and these 2 idiots from the Grad Dept said Dabo shouldn't be speaking on behalf of the university (he wasn't, he was giving his personal opinion in response to a question), and then they basically said they were demanding an apology on behalf of the public. Unbelievable. So Dabo can't speak for the university (which he wasn't doing anyway), but these morons think they can speak for the entire public, when only a very small percentage of the public agrees with them. Ugh, this nonsense is getting so annoying.


Swinney should have followed his own advice


Posted: Sep 16, 2016 2:44 PM
 

His initial advice (and opinion) was a team event is not the right place and then proceeded to use his position as coach at a press conference to issue a LONG retort. He should have made a brief comment and moved on because of his own position.

And they all try to find the negative in anything, and how they can spin it in their favor, for their own agenda. It's truly sad.
