    Surprised their receivers coach hasn't moved on to bigger things. Their receivers always seem to catch anything thrown their way. Not sure if they are just recruiting stud receivers, really developing their guys or a combination of both; but we've seen them make catch after crazy catch over the past four years.

    As a Clemson guy, it's pretty amazing how they keep all staff members. Some of the staff were Clemson players or have connections to the school (Tony Elliot and Jeff Scott). Clemson gives chances to lesser known guys, ie, the man Dabo himself who was out of coaching until Clemson gave him a shot at WR coach and ultimately HC, Chad Morris and Brent Venables (BV) was was ran out of OU. Swinney also has been know to take less of a raise or no raise in order to pay the assistants. They made Chad Morris the highest paid assistant at one point and has made BV a rich man. BV IMO has no desire to be a head coach as he has most likely had chances to be one and get back to the midwest where he is from. He is happier than you know what to coach the defense and not have to do the PR stuff that he would probably hate.

    Dabo has created an atmosphere that kids want to play in and coaches want to work in. You very rarely see him ripping into coaches and players on the sidelines. In 2015 our punter made a bone head decision to run a fake for whatever the hell reason in the ACCCG and Dabo did get into him some but then he turned around and let him run a fake against OU in the playoff a few weeks later.
    According to our regular OU posters, BV was not ran out of Oklahoma. Please elaborate on that point.

    Yep, I think Dabo has struck a balance between being able to create a work environment that doesn't mentally and physically consume the coach and their family and still being able to put a championship level product on the field. For a lot of these guys, that very well maybe worth staying and not chasing the dollar and prestige of bigger job titles.

    I know nothing at all of what CNS tells people when he is interviewing assistants, but even if he says nothing but all I will promise you is brutally long hours, these guys know by now that the Saban coaching tree will take you places you otherwise wouldn't get to go, and they are coming here with that in mind, just like a lot of these kids come here on a three year plan before declaring for the draft. Does it make CNS' system any worse than Dabo's? No. It's just different, and up to this point, we have been just as effective even with the coaching turnover. But I do think that CNS is ready for a little more continuity.

    They may struggle in the playoffs. But I'm not sure any of the other ACC teams are getting that much better and Clemson will have that much drop off for them to truly "struggle" in the regular season. Fla St appears to be a dumpster fire that Taggart is unable to turn around. Miami is starting over, again. Who else in the ACC showed any sort of upward trajectory to even make Clemson keep their starters in after the 3rd quarter?

    Someone from the ACC gives them a game every year. They beat Syracuse by 4 points this past year primarily due to a 4th down completion from their 3rd string QB. Yes, on paper they should route everybody but we all know it doesn't work that way. We've seen this time and time again with Ohio St., FSU and even Alabama. Every team in the ACC will gameplan for Clemson and Trevor Lawrence all off season. I bet they slip up somewhere..

    Agree on each year someone comes out of nowhere and gives them a game. But in most of those cases it was due to their starting quarterback going down or they hit a rash of injuries so bad that backup wr's were playing safety and corner. I guess what I'm saying is, that they don't have anyone who truly can challenge them unless something like a QB injury occurs or they have multiple injuries at the same time in key positions. There's no one in their conference who can make them struggle "straight up".

    Also Trevor has lot of game tape on him... we'll see how good he is at adjusting.
