Dabo Swinney and his comments
Its becoming really hard for me to dislike this guy. Lol. Today he spoke to Stephen A. Smith and was just... nice.
Dabo spoke highly of Kirby and said he's on the right path. To which Dabo pointed out his path was similar but Clemson stayed with him. (Remember he started rough then 2012 was on fire but had a set back next year losing to UGA and FSU). But it allowed him to get guys who brought all in on his ideals.
Now this next part got me to smile. He said when he goes into a recruits home and they are talking about early playing time he ask them. Where you better as a freshman or this year as a senior. He says he always gets the same answer. So he said, "In these transfer situations I tell guys I understand but you got guys that've come in before you working and doing as well I cant ignore them. Yeah Stephen there are situations where a guy is better like Lawrence this year or Watkins in the past but most of the time its a rarity." That was in response to Stephen asking about the Lawrence, Tua, and Fields situations.... He later went on to say that if a guy has lost his spot to an underclassman he doesnt blame the kid if they are working their butts off he blames the staff for their evaluations and not finding a way to get the kid on the field but will honor their scholarships.
I thought everything was pretty cool from him. He said he understands SEC football needs to recruit heavy vs ACC football as well.
