How much longer ESPN?

Dabo has been the Clemson head coach for going on 10 years now. How long before all of your announcers learn that his name is not DAH - bo? C'mon people! (Just re-watching the GT game.)

Apparently you were the only one here who didn't understand my comment.


Seriously? You can't understand THAT comment?

Ok I had a cousin who had some processing issues so I understand. What he's saying is the announcers are still mispronouncing Dabo's name after 10 years as a coach.

I know, it’s irritating. Day-bo or dah-bo, seems like that’s the only way they can pronounce it.

I haven't heard DAY-bo that I can remember, but that might be worse. These announcers are supposed to become very familiar with the teams during the week leading up to the game. You would think they could at least learn to pronounce the coach's name.


MBTC says DAY-Bo all the time to me. We both know he says it

Mushcoot, Mustcramp, Marshcrap, or some other descriptive version of their fearless leader's name?

The definition of awesome!


They're trying to make him sound

all French and sophisticated. He's from dadgum Pelham, Alabama!

All they need to know is that the origin of the name was toddler-speak for "dat boy" and it's very easy.


But, on the other hand, you can't fix stupid.....


it's the same people

who wrongly pronounce pecan "pe-CAHN" instead of "pe-CAN".

"DAB-o", not "DAHB-o"
"pe-CAN", not "pe-CAHN".

But I've heard Yankees say it that way my whole life.

Can someone help me with the pronunciation of Uranus? I have problems with that one too.

You use "pe-CAHNs" to make a "PE-can" pie!

Put the emPHASIS on the correct sylABLE!


you are correct - I capitalized the mispronounced syllable

for emphasis in the post, not for proper pronunciation. I assume people at least know how to say the word, even of they don't pronounce "c-a-n" correctly. My mistake there.

The proper pronunciation, at least in the Southern stratum, is indeed "PEE-can".

You say Day-bo

Posted: Sep 24, 2018 11:20 AM
 

You say Day-bo I say Dah-bo
You say Clem-zen I say Clem-son
Day-bo, Dah-bo, Clem-zen, Clem-son
Let's call the whole thing off!

Fine-bam says Clem-zen and Day-bo unless he's interviewing Dah-bo then he pronounces
the words correctly. So he's obviously doing it on purpose.

I can understand the Dabo gaffe, but "Clem-zen"? I don't get it.

No one says Ander-zen, or Peter-zen, or Sam-zen, or Jack Nichol-zen.

At least ESPN is talking Clemson and Dabo even if they are forced into it.

Keep winning and they will keep talking.

What's the old saying? "You can call me anything, just don't call me late for dinner."

Right. We don't mispronounce them as "dahche"-bags.***

I don't care how they pronounces Dabos name however they could at least announce the games professionally. They the worst bunch I've ever heard


A little Dab will do you

Espn sohuld make the announcers watch an old Brylcreem commercial 100 times. Never again would they get “Dab” wrong.

Even worse are the idiots who continue putting a "Z" in Clemson!! It is about as bad as "Dandy" Don Munson mispronouncing "Carolina" by leaving the "ro" out of the word. He also constantly says this "safternoon" instead of "afternoon" as well. Frankly I don't think he has a clue he is doing it, but he sure sounds bad. I miss Jim Philips on our broadcasts.

I guess we just have to put up with stupidity sometimes, but it does get frustrating.

Go Tigers!


Funny story on ESPN and pronuciations

Posted: Sep 25, 2018 9:34 AM
 

Was in an elevator with Chris Fowler - told him, love your work, but there is no Z in Clemson.

His answer - some people just say it that way

Me - I don't call your school Colo-RAY-do now do I?

Him - door opens, he quickly exits. Got the distinct impression he didn't like me

Isn't there a coot on Youtube with a song about Day-bo?

I was yelling at the tv the other day when I heard those clowns saying it wrong. It’s so simple, I don’t understand how they continue to get it wrong year after year. We need to start a campaign on the right pronunciation.


They'll learn about the same time
