Since we have memorial stadium & Frank Howard field

What will we name after Dabo? I was kinda surprised they didn't name op center after him or at least keep it unnamed until a future date.

They renamed the CFP Championship Trophy, “The Dabo”.

"DaboWorld". At least the guys on TV were calling it that.

As awesome as the football ops enter is, it is not

serving the purpose of a heritage hall type facility. It is simply not conducive for large numbers of fans to go through and enjoy the many trophies, all-Americans, championships etc. For that reason, I think Clemson should build a fan center just south of Fike and north of the memorial gardens, across the street from the northeast corner of the stadium, with a pedestrian walk over to the stadium itself. On the corner attached to the stadium should be outdoor National Championship markers like the ones at the National Championship Plaza. But these will be part of a fan heritage hall facility and plaza known as the Hall of Champions at Swinney Family Plaza. This would honor Coach's whole family and be aptly named because it will be a place many Clemson families enjoy.

As for the stadium, they will never change it from Memorial Stadium, or Frank Howard Field. But I do think eventually they should rename the north stands the William Christopher Swinney North Concourse and the south stands will be renamed the Danny Lee Ford South Concourse, or Daniel Lee Ford South Concourse.


The Hall of Champions location will also serve to hide that last remaining camera shots of the P-plant during game broadcasts.

That's my vision. Hope you like it.

I’ll bet there’s an athletic department plan to “monetize” fan access to the trophies at some point. As for honoring Dabo, given his significant contributions to the Christian faith, I say he becomes the 13th apostle! ??

That seems really inappropriate. Surprised that you would post that.


I agree - his comments didn't need to.....

Struggling to understand why renaming a building which was renamed in 1946 would make someone unhappy. It has already had two names. A third wouldn't appear to be entirely inappropriate.


You better wait until Dabo is dead.

He won't allow that while he's alive.

Agreed. I can't imagine he'd allow it.

I would think with the amount of money gifted for the ops they named it correctly

Could you translate that into English? Much appreciated.

"Ops?" Huh?? As in special ops?? Are you nuts??


How about let a gift be a gift and name sports stuff

After historic sports figures of University. If you are giving just for the name then it isn't a gift at all just an act of look at me. Not saying that's what happened here but in general terms.


The Dabo TROPHY CASE sounds about right.***

I am not attempting/trying to open old wounds but, it has been very easy to remove names from places that were named after anything involving the Confederacy, and then renaming them with the majority being okay with it. So if it's that easy, I say rename Memorial Stadium to Dabo Swinney Memorial Stadium. Underneath the name, add, Where championships were born!!!

Perimeter Road. I wouldn't think so at least. CD Swinney Boulevard has a nice ring.
