What if, at the end of 1989

The Pres. AD and Danny had gotten together, away from outside influences, and worked out the way to go with the football program, instead of the game those folks played. What would Clemson football looked like in the 90's. I am not blaming anyone but this is what Frank Howard said in an IPTAY meeting at the Ladson Fairgrounds.

Wouldn't happen.

I love Danny but he was 100% in the wrong. That "working out" meeting did happen, Danny was unhappy and when behind Lennon's back.

As far as what would have happened, Danny and Bobby would trade some blows in the early 90s with FSU winning most but not all. Worse, I would expect that between fighting Danny, Bobby, Steve, daU and UNC would be the winners. The "dead" years of the 90s would be pushed back a few but rebuilding years of the mid 00s would not happen. Tommy or whatever would not have had the pressure to modernize "to win again" and we might not have ever had Dabo post Tommy.

Can anyone explain what happened with Coach Ford? I was not living in South Carolina at the time, I have heard many stories but never really heard what really happened.

Thanks in advance.

Men at 25 play football. Men at 40 play tennis. Men at 60 play golf. Have you noticed as men get older their balls get smaller.

Danny had too much power and they didn't like it. Danny was making demands that the administration didn't agree with.

I’ve always wondered myself how the 90s would have turned out for us. I’ve always been of the opinion we would have won the NC in 90 if Danny has stayed. Add Tommy Frazier, Emmitt Smith, Lethon Flowers etc to the team as they were all strong leans to Tigers before Danny left and you have to think we would have competed evenly with UF, FSU and U. Would have been interesting to see how many career wins DF would have wound up with. Probably wouldn’t have wound up with Dabo though. Interesting to contemplate.


Emmit was a freshman at UF in 86 or 87

He went pro before Spurrier got there.

Yep. Emmitt graduated in 90. Shouldn’t trust my old brain.

Obama going on a couples retreat as a threesome.

No first hand or any other hand kind of knowledge of that situation, but, back in those times, there was at least precedent for the football coach being MADE the AD as some big programs. Seemed to me that Danny wanted more say so, maybe even coveting the AD job, and the BOT and President wanted him to have way LESS say so. Guess who won that one.

National Championship in 90 and/or 91. That team in 90 was absolutely stacked on defense. Household names that made it big in the NFL.

Now beyond 91 w addition to FSU coming around in 93 who knows? Danny had it rocking but a lot of people forget that he did lose some head scratchers. Not much different than Tommy Bowden.
