Dabo Swinney: "If we are going to dream, let’s be extravagant about it"

The loss to Alabama is still fresh. If it was a wound, it would still be sore to the touch. But you can bet that head coach Dabo Swinney is moving past the loss and is already looking ahead to next season. He’s also ready to see how his team responds to a bad night in New Orleans. Full Story »



Would not trade our guy for anyone. Thank you Dabo for

being an outstanding example for all of us - no matter our walk of life or circumstances.


20 years ago - if I were to dream EXTRAVAGANTLY about Clemson football - I wouldn't have come CLOSE to dreaming about where we have been the last 5 years . . . not even close.


I've seen Phoenix & the Superdome & driven 10 minutes down the street to see MY TIGERS win the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP at Ray Jay . . . .

I've seen covers of magazines that are, honestly, becoming difficult to keep up with & buy and put someplace for safe keeping . . . BEFORE ? ONE Sports Illustrated cover that was the PINNACLE of everything Clemson sports related. NOW ? - commonplace.

I remember back in the day - before all this cursed "connectivity" and information overload - as a youngster - getting the Parade insert in the Sunday paper. There was one edition that was all about High School football and the top 100 stars - All Americans - top performers. And part of each kid's bio was where they were thinking about going to school. Some would have only one school, others would have 3 or 4 schools in their list.

I remember POURING over that crappy little insert, Sunday, after church - STRAINING to see maybe one or 2 or WOW-WEEEE - THREE of these top 100 kids that had Clemson even somewhere in their list - that my Clemson was even being CONSIDERED by this STAR high schooler.


And NOW - it seems - if there is a kid in the top 20 that doesn't have Clemson in his final 4 - we question WHY NOT ! ? ! ?


It is hard to believe where our little corner of ol' South Carolina has been lifted up to. Even if I was to dream EXTRAVAGANTLY.


Thank you Coach. For 1000 different things.

Great comments. I agree 100%. I’ll bet Dabo would love to read them too if you could mail or email them to him.


Rocky you're my new best friend! Even I couldn't have written this better!

100% Agee, Dabo is the “best” there is, as long as he wants to stay, we will be “ blessed” to be on top! Thank you to Tommy Bowden and Terry Don for bringing him our way!

You know, I think that Bowden and TD Phillips new what kind of a person that Dabo was, but I don't know that if either of them knew how good of a leader and teacher of young men and adults that he could or would be....

Think what you may but, I have grown and learned a lot about myself and life since Dabo Swinney became the HC at Clemson. I have also learned that you have to really like and trust someone else before you will allow yourself to learn anything from them. A lot of out looks that Dabo has in his life, I have developed into my own life and it has made my life better. I think that is that process we call, to live and to learn....

your own life, then you just aren't paying close enough attention, in my opinion.

You give somebody a pot of gold and they are going to ask, ‘Where is my silver?’ If you give them a pot of silver, then it’s ‘where is the gold?’ That is just life. That is just how it is. You just embrace that.

Well, I guess it’s official now from the last paragraph that he does read the tnetters coaches comments. Good thing he embraces it!!!

Great interview and good timing too David.

I was one of the ones guilty of not giving him chance after we lost our first game under him to Georgia Tech. I guess i didn't realize it took years to build the progam like it is today. It's like I saw someone post a while back, "I'd rather lose with him than win with somebody else!"

Great lesson in living. The trial comes in each day living the dream, even in setbacks. It's not easy but the reward is worth it. Remember last Natty and our Tiger euphoria. I much prefer Dabo's approach instead of Sabin, one built on anger at losing. Go Dabo. Go Tigers.

Been part of many discussions and studies that speak this same attitude!

Bottom line, you CANNOT OUT DREAM GOD. It is truly amazing, even after He has revealed Himself to me so many times, how He wants to be part of our lives! Should rephrase that - He wants to BE our lives; through even the bad stuff. Dabo gets this!

So, as much credit as Dabo deserves, and he does for making his personal decisions to surrender his life, I believe he would divert all glory to His Savior and LORD. Yes, we are blessed to have Dabo as the leader of our football program, and how he has touched all our lives in ways so much bigger than football! It’s eternal!!

Thanks Dabo, thank you Jesus!

KEEP CHANGING LIVES!
Go Tigers!
