    How is this Dabo “staying salty”?

    Just wondering what your reasoning is here given the limited knowledge of the situation i’m sure you have.

    I would never have imagined that black people demanding equality would be the downfall of a guy like Dabo...

    You really do have to keep recruiting the kids you have already signed these days. This is fucking crazy.

    Because you are a shit head from Lakeland high school that thought you would see major snaps on a team with Travis Etienne and 4 more upperclassman ahead of you even though you don’t know the plays yet?

    He’s going to fit in great with Mullen and Florida. Better than Clemson obviously.

    I’m sure Dabo would have never promised playing time as part of his recruiting pitch.

    “The only reason I came to Clemson is so my mother’s dad could watch me play,” Bowman told TigerNet. “He stayed in Atlanta, but he passed away and that really hurt me. He was my closest family to me up there and I just didn’t feel comfortable anymore. I just want to go to a school closer to home.”

    A month later, Bowman's grandfather on his father's side also passed away.

    "I started to feel uncomfortable," Bowman said. "It was uncomfortable being so far from home. So I really just wanted to be closer to home."

    "Clemson is a very great program," Bowman told TigerNet. "They have very great coaches and academic and is literally the most perfect place. It was just not the fit for me, though."

    Blackshear is great at the goal line? He’s like 160lbs.

    Wow, I hope our Clemson posters and posters from other equally as deplorable SEC fan bases enjoy that serving of crow after learning the real reason this young man has decided to leave Clemson. I, for one, wish him well in his future endeavors.

    Really interesting to see what players all over the country do with this year not counting against eligibility. RBs tend to want to get out early because of their shelf lifebut I have no idea what the draft prospects of Pierce or Davis are. And now Lingard and whoever else we've actually recruited are sitting there, too.

    Mullen doesn't have to recruit; we'll just live on the remnants of kids who realize they made the wrong choice after their first year. Let other schools get all of those Freshman jitters out of them.

    But in all honesty I think this is the wild wild west CFB. You gotta recruit HS kids, kids on your roster already and kids on other teams rosters.

    SOMEONE GIVE US THEIR FUCKING QB NOW

    Since Covid fucked up the eligibility clock, you could probably snag Feleipe Franks as a grad transfer. He’s thrown plenty of TDs to Dawg players already.

    Based off normal eligibility, next year we would have...

    rSR - Davis
    SR - Pierce
    rJR - Lingard
    rSO - Wright
    rFR - Bowman

    We probably won’t sign a hs RB this year. I have no clue if Davis and/or Pierce would enter the draft.

    Davis has the skill set, but has been hurt for 2 years, however he looked like his freshman self week 1.

    Pierce is strictly a runner at this point, he is going to have to become a better receiver out of the backfield.

    Like you said, I don’t see this covid eligibility really affecting RB, bc once these guys are good enough to get drafted, they go.

    Doesn’t everyone regain their eligibility so all those guys would be what they are this year, including Bow as a true frosh? If Bowman comes, I bet Wright leaves or switches to some kind of purely gadget guy/kick returner.

    Yeah, if that’s how it’s going to play out. I just based it on the way eligibility normally works bc the NCAA does NCAA things. Either way, kids will be eligible for the draft 3 years removed from hs

    The year is 2029....Its opening day at Death Valley, and the stadium is filled to its 126,843 capacity. All in orange. All waving orange flags. They cheer for their Tigers, celebrating the back to back national championships, and 4 out of the last 8 national championships. They are a dynasty. The media speculates "is this the greatest team ever?" Clemson, synonomous with "college football", is the envy of every other program in America.

    The Four Horseman, Cherone Peak, Martravias Bryant, Mike Bellamy and of course Sammy Watkins, are in attendance. Dabo has always credited them with being the Spark that turned around Clemson’s fortune. Though Clemson never actually won a national title while they were there, the 3 ACC championships they won put Clemson squarely back in the mix for the national title hunt from their perch on top of the ACC.

    Watkins, being Clemson's first Heisman Trophy winner and first #1 pick was greeted with roar, many still wearing his retired #1 jersey. Bellamy, a two-time NFL MVP and first ballot Hall of Famer raised his hand to the crowd, and nearly blinded all from the shine of his 4 super bowl rings. Peake and Bryant recently retired from the NFL as annual pro-bowlers and defining Clemson's new reputation as "Wide Reciever U".

    Just beside the four horseman, are three former Tiger walk-ons: Will Swinney, Drew Swinney, and Clay Swinney. Will is now an assistant coach at Alabama. Drew, a successful attorney in Atlanta. And Clay, who defied the odds and is now a starting wide receiver for the Tennessee Titans. They stand there, in awe. Tears flowing from their face as they think back to all the practices, hours in the weight room, and tough victories over ACC foes. They are all champions. It has all come to this. This one moment. They know this is what they worked for. They know what it feels like to achieve your dream.

    Then...an announcement is made, and a banner is dropped...

    The West Zone will be renamed...the Dabo Swinney Zone. Suddenly, 126,843 chant "Dabo! Dabo!" at the top of their lungs, and thank God that they were patient with Dabo. He asked for patience. He delivered.

    Clemson.
