“...he’s been embarrassingly wrong off the field...” - Dan Wolken on Dabo Swinney

[3]
Posted: Dec 30, 2020, 10:09 AM
 

So wrong, in fact, that he continues to solidify the paragon athletic culture in all of college sports and attract an unending stream of premier recruits and their families to Clemson. Wow, Dabo - that’s sooo wrong.

So wrong, in fact, that his players have turned in their best collective academic performance to date under his leadership this season. Wow, Dabo - that’s sooo wrong.

So wrong, in fact, that an entire movement of socially aware college athletes has rallied behind the leadership of his incredibly mature players. Wow, Dabo - that’s sooo wrong.

So wrong, in fact, that he quietly devotes time and treasure to breast cancer research and other charitable pursuits. He even called my good friends who had a medically fragile baby this year just to reach out and encourage them. Wow, Dabo - that’s sooo wrong.

It’s 2020 and Dan Wolken found it in his heart to write about, of all things, this garbage.

liberals in general hate Christians for some reason. I don't know why exactly, but a lot of them do. They being the pillars of tolerance and open-mindedness.

but by providing a link to the story (I understand why you did) you're doing EXACTLY what this guy wants - sending eyeballs to his garbage column. That's how he gets paid. That's how he keeps or doesn't keep his job.

Today, we have to think differently if we want to drive real change - like not driving traffic to bad media.

Hope you understand the intent of this note. No ill intended whatsoever. Thanks and go Tigers!

Wolken is embarrassingly wrong in his cubicle. Yep, Dan-O, there are just so many former and current players who hang their head in shame to be associated with Dabo.

He writes for USAToday, so that should tell you all you need to know about him. Can't get a real job with a credible news outlet so he reverted to the fishwrap paper.

Dan Wolken is what's wrong with the media, and in large part, the nation. All that matters to him is the majority opinion. I'm 67 years old. I left dear old Clemson University in 1976. And if time has taught me anything, it's that the majority is going to be wrong most of the time. Dabo is standing firmly on the absolutes of life; his Christian faith, his firm conviction about right and wrong, and his responsibility to speak truth regardless of the outcome. Yet truth terrifies liberals. They detest it. They reject it's very existence. To liberals, everything is negotiable. There are no absolutes. That's why they hate Dabo and those like him. That's fine with me. Dabo is a football coach. His job is to recruit, train, motivate and graduate college football players. He seems to be pretty accomplished in that regard. That's because the young men he recruits appreciate his genuineness even though the media doesn't. I, for one, can live with that. At this point, the media is the greatest threat to our Constitutional Republic. Americans have no greater access to the truth than the people under the former Soviet Union had. That's because of the failure of the media. They've been bought and paid for. Thankfully, Dabo has not. And I don't believe he will be. I sure hope not. In the meantime, I'm exceptionally proud that he is the coach of my beloved Clemson Tigers! Go Tigers! Beat the bucknuts!

Good points, all. But: Swinney also has made tone deaf comments that indicate he reads nothing but sports news. Who the #### does he think he is to say football players exercising their Constitutional rights to sit, kneel, stand, whatever they wanted to do, should move to "another country"? Does the Bill or Rights protect only him and his ilk? Who accused them of not "respecting our military" when in fact the protest had nothing to do with the military? Or making $10 million a year -- round it up to a million a month -- complains about "too much entitlement" in this country as he rides his players' skills to another championship and more money for himself as they go through school penniless? Who clearly had no idea what "BLM" meant or referred to and objected before his players straightened him out? (Even a young Trevor Lawrence knew better.) Who had no clue why black students objected to a "Calhoun" honors program and "Tillman" hall until two former star football players signed a petition to do away with them?

He has in fact been "embarrassingly wrong" off the field at times. One can admire his achievements and root for further accomplishments without shoveling earth over his failures.

In ALL measures of life than 99.99999% of anyone on TNET. Eff silly comments like tone deaf, w t f does it mean anyhow. Its just more coward liberal speak. Need more like Dabo and less like you and your man crush Dan.

obviously never attended Clemson University, nor do you support Clemson University The players love Dabo, both black and white and freshman to seniors.

Dabo is graduating players at a tremendous rate. If you don't like our coach, maybe you could become a Vandy fan like USA Today's Dan Wolken.

You chastise Dabo of not knowing what BLM stands for yet the organization of BLM can’t even decide what BLM stands for.

They have changed their stance on different so called core values depending on the political winds at the time. If you have to keep changing the wording on your core values statement on your own website, then maybe just maybe your stated CORE values aren’t really your main goals.

Uhhhhh - he's just a guy who, because of the bloodshed & sacrifice & death of our fellow Americans on battlefields, has THE RIGHT TO SAY WHATEVER HE JOLLY-WELL PLEASES . . . . just like the folks who have the right to "kneel, stand, whatever" . . . .

It is up to his employer to determine if they are OK with what their employee is saying while on company time and retain his services.


Apparently Clemson University is A-OK with these statements . . . . as am I.



Have a nice day.

He is, just like you, entitled to his opinion. If it doesn’t jibe with yours doesn’t mean he is wrong. Liberals always want to force their views and by whatever means , their beliefs, on those who have different opinions
