Swinney on winning national title: "It's going to happen"

We really need to…

Clemson is truly blessed to have Dabo

I hope we are fortunate enough to keep him for many, many years to come. He will absolutely win multiple national titles with what he has built and continues to build.

Well, I hope that's true, but Dabo is such a special breed of coach, one can't assume that's a true statement. If Dabo left for some reason, Clemson would be in a good place for whoever took over, but it takes a special kind of leader to keep that running consistently.

I have to assume that if and when Alabama came open, Dabo would take the offer seriously if he got it. And he very well may take that job in that case. BUT, I think many underestimate the strength of the ties for him at Clemson, and I don't think it's a foregone conclusion that he'd take it if offered.

Think about Dabo's potential legacy at Alabama vs his potential legacy at Clemson. Best case he is playing for 3rd at Bama behind Bear and Saban.

A caller to the SiriusXM sports station a couple of weeks ago said it best. Something to the effect of "Alabama might want Dabo to leave Clempson but Dabo ain't leaving. Clempson gonna give him everything he wants to stay. Dabo gonna be Bobby Bowden of Clempson...".

That caller was an absolute scream both for what he said and how he said it. First thing he did was call out Kiffin for being the "immature cheese-it who needs another 5 years under Saban to mature...".

I heard that guy too.

Was laughing my head off and hoping he turns out to be right.

I agree. It would be a very difficult follow-up after what Saban has done. Anything less and the 'Bama fans would be up in arms. And my guess is the next coach, no matter who it is, would probably not be able to replicate what Nick has accomplished.

I surely hope that Dabo never leaves us for Bama, but i believe that Dabo could follow up with where Saban left off bc I believe that Dabo could and would bring in just as good and in some cases better talent than Saban bc Dabo is a much more likable coach than Nick is with a much more likable personality. But lets just hope that Clemson would do what ever it would take to keep Dabo right where he belongs, at Clemson University. It was Bama that almost took Dabo away from coaching maybe for ever if Tommy Bowden hadn't called Dabo back into coaching when he did at Clemson. Because of Clemson, Dabo has been put back into coaching now for as long as he wants to coach bc Clemson gave him the chance to prove himself as a quality D-1 FB coach. If not for that opportunity that was offered by Clemson, Dabo very well could have been selling real estate bc he had to settle into an employment that could forever support him and his family. After he had settled into stable employment as an accomplished real estate agent, he wouldn't have risk that future to be a position college FB coach bc those jobs can be as unstable as any job in the college FB field bc position coaches are a dime a dozen. Dabo wouldn't have left a stable upscale lively hood for his family and go back to a unstable job as a position coaching can be and is. Dabo was most likely 6 months to a year from being out of the coaching field for ever bc, he would have never left a stable future for his family for a risky position as a position coach. He wouldn't have ever done that I don't believe!!!

You may be right about Dabo achieving great success at 'Bama. But I can't help but think about Danny Ford going to Arkansas back in the '90s. Great coach with a Natty under his belt, big program with an excellent history (Arkansas), but really no success. Or Saban going to the Dolphins a few years ago. No success. Sometimes, certain guys are meant to be at specific places at just the right time. Dabo is perfect for Clemson right now.

Great Job with that answer Coach bc, there isn't a better answer than the one that you gave. Dabo Swinney has met his true calling, and I don't think that there is a better human being cut out for this job than Dabo Swinney. He really gets it, and his players are truely blessed to have Dabo as their coach in FB, and most importantly, their coach on how to be in life!!! If all the mothers and fathers really knew the HC behind Clemson FB, I believe our team would be over flowing full of the right kind of 5 star recruits/players, bc all those mothers and fathers of all the young men that are 5 star recruits, playing for Dabo at Clemson would be a must for their kids leaving home to be guided and mentored by a coach that they didn't know personally, but has seen the results of the young men that had moved on with their life after Clemson, Dabo and his staff!!!
