    Dabo is just a lucky version of Richt, he’d be nothing without Venables. His luck will wear off.

      I don’t know. CMR did do quite a bit of coordinating. Dabo went from being a position coach to a figure head.

        I respect Dabo, and what he has accomplished. Handling the CEO role very well, and landing Venables are THE two keys to what has happened. Establishing an atmosphere where all those talented DL prospects returned for their senior year says a lot about what is clicking in the upstate of SC these days.

          Yes, Dabo is a very accomplished coach. I don’t think he IS stupid, he just SAYS stupid things.

            This wasn’t one of his better thoughts, I agree. If he continues to swat Bama in playoff games and snatch recruits, he may get attacked by the Bama crazies and be stuck in Clemson forever at $10MM+ a year. (I don’t think he leaves there for Tusky anyway. JMO.)

      The guy is cringe, but let’s give him credit. He’s been declared the “lucky” beneficiary of Watson, then Venables, now Lawwrence; and now he’s just starting to recruit at an elite level

      UGA should be so “lucky”

      Coaches are discredited for hiring and keeping bad coordinators. Richt paid a price for some of his placements. Give credit where credit is due. Dabo’s job is to ensure he has the right people in the right place. Apparently that is going well for them…and you can’t know how irritated I am about that.

      Lucky version of Mark Richt? Lol.

      Dabo is a much better coach than Richt ever was or could ever be. That 2017 ACC Championship matchup, with everything on the line … was vintage Richt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNm5Hcog8lU

      RIP turnover chain.

      And, yes, Miami kicked a field goal down 0-38.

    • help me out here. What is STUPID about this? The fact that he made a joke about Osama Bin Laden? Osama Bin Dabo is what? Not funny or just politically incorrect or what? Since he is not a professional comedian I have to let him slide on the humor part and if making fun of Bin Laden or himself is unPC than I’ll just have to continue to be a knuckle dragging moron that most PC, social justice warriors seem to think I am. Do we really expect an Alabama Grad with the name Dabo to say , “well in Alabama I am now persona non grata”? I’m reasonably sure that would be generate the following; Jeez man that ain’t half as smart as you think it sounds. I knew what he meant and I thought that was the purpose of the spoken word and communications in general.

        Pretty big jump here. I don’t see anything here about Dabo being insensitive, politically incorrect, etc. That might be YOUR issue, brother, if you see persecution instead of the typical member-of-fanbase-1 making fun of coach-of-fanbase-2.

        If you’re a hammer everything looks like a nail, I suppose. Or something like that.

        If you had told me in 2002 that in 2019 southern right wingers would be complaining that people who find whimsical comparisons to Osama bin Laden to be off-color are “SJW’s,” I would have laughed in your face.

        • Stupid was Gaskill’s word not mine I merely needed clarification. I will only note that no one told me what was stupid…..make it personal or political if you like but that is not how questions get answered. What is stupid about the word play? For what its worth… you have never met less of a snowflake. Give and take is fine but conversion from answering the question to ad hominem attacks is something that works fine for many,and you know who you are, but woofie don’t play that game. So quit being a jerk…..is that witty ,stupid or not as witty as I think?

      • You asked a serious question and you deserve a serious answer.
        Osama Bin Laden committed the largest mass murder in American history. Osama Bin Laden is (at least I thought at the time I posted this) the most despised, by Americans, human being who has lived during the last 74 years.
        To me it is stupid that a person in the public eye would try to make people think of a mass murderer and universally despised person when thinking about himself.

        I figure you are sincere in not understanding what was stupid about the highest paid public figure in South Carolina saying, “When you think of me think of a mass murder. ” Maybe I am the one who is all wety.

        • I merely viewed the statement as an attempt at humor. Hell , Mel Brooks and Charlie Chaplin make fun of Hitler and essentially steal his power by mocking an admittedly much worse, or at least deadlier, mass murder. The fact that someone has done something evil does not mean if use them in humor that you are stupid. If Brooks and Chaplin are stupid the world could use a lot more stupid people. Reductio ad absurdum.. I do appreciate the tone of the reply. Txs

    Yea, Dabo, just like William Barr’s job at DOJ has been like terrified young soldiers facing near certain death, making the D-Day landing.

    “As we’ve been watching the coverage of June 6, 1944,” [Barr] observed to a class of agents graduating from the FBI Academy, “I had the thought that my arrival this time felt a little bit, I think, like jumping into Sainte-Mère-Église on the morning of June 5, trying to figure out where you could land without getting shot.”
