I hope they are not planning on tearing it down when he retires and moves away.

He will sell it to the next coach. Mark Right donated his house to FCA. Who knows? Does not really matter.

He and Kathleen are not exactly posting the pictures on social media themselves. Fans seem to be adding to the distraction.

I hope folks had permission to post those pictures. Can you imagine if someone posted pictures of your family's home like that?

Gotta suck to have your life and family that exposed. I can't even comprehend what that would be like or the worries that would come with it.

loss to Syracuse? I'm sure some would like to know. Dabo is just now getting settled. This run will continue. Stand by your computers for updates.

Good grief. Get over it. Did you lose money on the game?! God forbid people live their life. Stop with the miserable drivel.


Dabo's job is to win football games. Looks like

You do know there are several dozen coaches, assistants, trainers etc that work with these young men. Dabo s not the only coach in their ear. He has never let outside junk affect his game... when his Dad was sick and died we went undefeated. We saw games over 3 years where Deshaun wasn’t in it or wasn’t fired up. To me it appeared that the entire team, with the exception of a handful of people, was off. They never got their rythym. Our offense is called by our two offensive coordinators and defense called by Coach V. Other years we could be out of sync but we had once in a lifetime to get them motivated. Someone is going to step up and be the leader in the locker room, I hope it happens this bye week and come out and destroy GT with all 93 players dressed out and play

Well, he's moving on up! And that ain't the "east side".

Interestingly enough the house is located on the “east side” of Clemson.

Nice castle -but it does not really fit in Clemson - maybe Beverly Hills


Congrat's Dabo you've earned it!

Here's hoping the Swinney's have many happy memories and years ahead of them in their new house.


Happy Moving Day to The Swinney Family!***

He could sell that house right now and make money. Everything was bid out, at severely low prices or free. Hey, look what I did for Dabos lawn, look what, I did for his pool, etc... Expect to see more and more pics for advertising.

thats quite a place.

My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

I heard the house belongs to the University.


IDK about a castle

I was thinking a reform school or a lunatic asylum. But yeah, it sure is big.

for a castle. If I hired on as a serf think I might work my way up to squire or something? I'm old but I'm still a hoer.

To pick up on this and slam Dabo for being "greedy" or something


Re: cant wait for some rival fan base


Posted: Oct 20, 2017 9:26 PM
 

At 21,000 sq ft I would say extravagant yes, but greedy no. I mean not like Saban or Muschump are living in a cardboard box themselves. Haters gonna hate.

A 21,000 sq. ft. house is gonna require full-time staff. How big is the lot?

The Swinney family ought to be comfortable in those digs. Congrats Dabo on the new home.

I hope the first family of Clemson Athletics enjoys their new home. When they throw a cookout or something for the team and recruits they will have plenty of room. All of Dabo and Kathleen's family live out of town, in Alabama, so it would also make sense to have enough room for overnight guests.

Houses sell everyday with a few of them selling for a few buck$$$ more. And you can bet your right arm that if Dabo gets tired of Clemson for any reason, that house won't slow him down from packing his bags and gone!!! And he would most likely make a dollar or two on the house. Rich folks don't sweat the small shiot....

2018 white level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg

It doesn't bother you that he's paid as much as he is...

[1]
Posted: Oct 22, 2017 10:29 AM
 

... but it sounds like some people don't like the way he spends his pile of cash. We all want to think that Dabo is a humble man, just one of us. Well, maybe he is, except for the being a bazillionaire part. I think college coaches are way overpaid, but if we're going to pay them exorbitant salaries and bonuses, we shouldn't be surprised that they spend it on nice--really, really nice--things.


Re: FB Update: LOOK: Swinney family moves into new 'castle'

Two observations:
1) I remember reading somewhere that the house the Swinneys had been living in was their "dream home," one that they had designed themselves years ago and probably built years ago, long before he became the success he is now. The point being, I can't imagine they weren't happy where they were. Who knows, maybe they kept it.
2) I remember an interview with Nick Saban that showed off his Tuscaloosa house, which was a cavernous structure, part of which was dedicated toward entertaining recruits, complete with the latest gaming systems, etc.

My (otherwise uniformed) deduction: this 15,000 SF house is an investment in recruiting to "keep up with the Sabans," and probably a not-insignificant portion of the house can be taken as a tax deduction because it's used for recruiting.

Disclaimer: as far as I know, the closest I've ever been to Dabo is the Bob Uecker seats. So what do I know?
