Guess you boys learned nothing from Penn State. Never name anything after a person until they retire and never, ever retire a number...only a jersey.

Need to get Wilkins in there somewhere too.

Perhaps we could rename Williams Brice as Wilkins-Watson Stadium since we own them.

If Dabo retires from Clemson in 15 or so years, we’ll find an appropriate way to honor him.

Meanwhile there is no reason whatsoever to dilute the contribution made by Frank Howard.

Dabo’s guys are playing and winning on Frank’s field.

Frank Howard actually helped maintain the field so his Tigers could play. He along with many of our previous coaches contributed to and helped make Clemson what it is today. You don’t get rid of the past or dilute it to reward the present as they too some day will be the past.

15 years? I was hoping he would stick around til he's at least 70 which would be 21 more years. Maybe til he's 75 if he still wants to coach.

No. It looks really bad to rename Memorial Stadium after a person (see Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas for this). The stadium was built to honor the memory of Clemson students killed in battle, and slapping someone's name on it (even someone as honorable as Dabo) does them a disservice.

I would rather not touch Memorial Stadium's name. Howard-Swinney Field is better.

No way. I'd rather rename the stadium than split the field

should disqualify him from consideration.

Seriously, not a fan of honoring people before they are dead. So, I would hold off until we can be reasonably sure there are no skeletons in the closet...so to speak.

One word, NO.
Current players and coaches always speak about how all of our former players are responsible for building the team we enjoy today. Coach Howard is equally responsible for building not only Memorial Stadium but Clemson Football. Print that. Tweet that.

The only thing I would do is after he retires name it Swinney Hill. Assuming he doesn’t execute his plan for closing in that end of the stadium and forever ruining the view of campus.

I have been happy with Dabo since day one, but Frank Howard literally built that field.
