It’ll pay off for him when recruiting in the future, we are to blessed to hold grudges. If they aren’t All-In it’s not for Clemson or them. We have some awesome young men dropping their chips in the All-In bucket at RB.

Concur. Clueless (in regard to 5* RB recruit) and clear spoken about it as the RB coach.

He should have been more in tune with his player

no wonder the kid left. His coach had no idea there was even a problem.

How should he have been able to pick

Demarkus' brain on what he was feeling about his grandfather's situation? I know coaches do a lot of one-on-work, but that dies down when days and weeks are dedicated to game-planning. Unless Demarkus came forward with his feelings, then how is Elliot or anyone supposed to be "in tune"?

You are a swimmer. Stay in the water. Your ignorance on football is incredible. Someday after Dabo, you will be wishing Tony was our head coach.
Pull for the coots! It suits you better.


I think Tony will make a great head coach...

Dabo, more than likely isn't a great play caller himself.

Well some of those play calls tonight surely made me wonder who called that play!!!

Tony may or may not be a head coach


Posted: Oct 4, 2020, 6:01 AM
 

but he's a crap offensive coordinator based on what we've seen so far. Keeps paying lip service to the idea that he's going to stick to the run...then we're up 17 with 12 minutes left and he's throwing on every ####### down. When we play someone who actually has the talent, we are in trouble.

Kind of hard to just stick to the run with TL, Rodgers, etc etc. Why would we just stick to the run? ETN was plenty involved anyway. He had over 100 yards receiving too.

The series of downs before half-time is why you mix in the run. Three passes. Three downs. 30 seconds later, a tired Clemson D is back in the field and gives up a touch.

I don’t know why, But when I read this post I hear it in a drill Sargent voice and tone.

We do miss Scott. He was a co-coordinator.
He’d still be if he hadn’t gotten his own program.

How is that negative at all?

Let's face it, they were co-offensive coordinators but Scott carried the offense and now he's gone. Elliot can't call plays. That team last night looked like the 3 stooges running a 3 legged race. Keep that up and we won't even MAKE the playoffs. We will drop to 2 or 3 this week and if we don't improve it will get worse.


Most idiotic

statement I read in awhile! “Three stooges.....” I assume you’re talking about ETN, Rodgers and Ladson. You’re forgot about Lawrence!

The offense put up 41 pts in it’s first full game with the first team. Elliott and co used ETN both run and pass. I think I calculated he had 187 all purpose yds in rushing/passing. The offense is down Justin Ross and a gone Tee Higgins.

And I’m not sure how Bowman leaving had anything to do with Jeff Scott leaving. He certainly didn’t go to USF.

Go Tigers!

You do know that Jeff Scott has never called plays, it’s always been Tony Elliott....smh. So he’s called plays in 4 national championships winning 2, won 5 ACC Championships, been to 5 and won 4 playoff games and you say that he can’t call plays....really

So it’s safe to say you have never complained about Jeff’s play calling? I won’t waste my time looking.

Hi JudgebeOrange!

Right on queue with logging in an heading straight to the TDs. Do you even understand your logins are available for all to see?

Again, I'm guessing you think the more obvious it is the more dubious it gets?

TD away, young lady. This one is for you!

Maybe at some point your imagined sense pf accomplishment will fade out tho? Do you really feel like you're affecting anything by clicking on a thumbs down icon? How old are you Karen? We met about 3 years ago now, and at the time you looked like you were in your 30's. Regardless, you're too old to be living in this internet charade, ya know? Maybe at some point you can come to grips with real life and not continue to propagate the (bizarre!) charade?

I mean seriously, it takes a concerted effort to TD a post, then TU another arbitrary post just to be able to TD another one of my posts. You do realize its obvious, right? And you don't care??

Come on Karen. We can be friends. You really did seem like a decent lady.


Am I right?

I’m curious to see if people start to bash Dabo like they have Brownell

about losing players to transfer, now that it is easier to transfer in football than it used to be.

Not surprised you posted this

There is a huge difference between continually losing players you are supposed to be developing - that will have an impact and get lots of playing time (Basketball) and players leaving because they are buried on the depth chart and want to play more at a lower level school. Yes, there is a one off player who after a month, simply wanted to go home. (Football).
The differ


Probably but since we end up in the cfp every year and win the nc every now and then

IMHO Swinney will continue to lose some young stars due to p.t. Bowman signed with Clemson to start quickly then go to the NFL. When ETN came back, it was a setback for Bowman. When LJ Dixon and Mellusi got the practice and game reps, it was a deal breaker. Bowman was on the line between Clemson and Florida. He felt he was not succeeding on his terms so Bowman left. He may or may not be an NFL player one day, but he has a better shot than Dixon and Mellusi based on his h.s. pedigree.

As for Brownell, not many follow Clemson basketball. About the came as Wake football. Hopefully, that will change one day.

leaving Florida passed away? I haven't seen where it was about not succeeding on his terms? Do you have a source for that?


Oh Karen...

When Brad accomplishes a third of what Dabo has, then maybe people will stop questioning his leadership.

Come on, it is a different world in college sports and 5 Star players expect to play.


I’ve learned that when a basketball player transfers, seemingly without warning

our coaches are criticized for not being in tune with their players, and not relating well enough to them to be able to keep them happy.

I’m assuming the same logic applies here.

Can you show the examples of where people


Posted: Oct 4, 2020, 2:17 PM
 

have said it was an issue of "not being in tune with" or "not relating well enough"?

I mean, there are how many players to choose from in the Brownell tenure? Has anyone ever said they left and Brad wasn't "in tune with them" in the sense it's being used here?

Also, why in sam hill are you trying to compare the football program to the basketball program. Plus, I succinctly recall you stating on this board that at one point you were on board with change in the bball program?

And, do you agree it is mandatory to make the NCAA tournament to justify more time?


Re: Can you show the examples of where people


Posted: Oct 4, 2020, 3:09 PM
 

Regarding play calling. Just go back to the LSU game last year and look at the use of Travis and Galloway (2nd half) after the 1st half success they had should have showed the way. Whoever was calling plays - I thought it was done poorly by not taking advantage of our strengths ??
