    Curious who you have in the CFP? Clemson has a joke of a schedule with the ACC being the worst of the Power 5 conferences. They likely do not face a team ranked in the top 15 all year before the playoffs. The best they face is aTm and they are a 4 loss team. Even if they were to lose to aTm, they’d have to lose in the ACC Champ game to get left out. Kind of like BAMA, they have to play their way out.

    Re: Is Dabo Now "The Man" ?

    He is one of the top coaches in college football
    His program is one of the top programs in college football
    He is a heck of a good coach
    BUT he would have to at least when the next two in a row (which would give him a three-peat) before "the man" conversation can realistically start.

    As of now, the title belongs to Saban and rightfully so

    No.

    Do we have zero patience as a society now?

    He's not "THE MAN." Clemson isn't a "Dynasty." Alabama's dynasty isn't over and Nick Saban has not lost his touch. These things may happen some day, but they have not as of yet.

It's tough to convince them to keep giving it everything they've got and hyper focused when they're beating the brakes off teams every week. When everybody in the media is crowning you the greatest thing since sliced bread. Dabo's "little ole Clemson" card has now expired. He's about to know what it's like to have to motivate and coach from the position Saban has had to do for the last five or six years.
    I think he will still try to play the disrespect card by saying no one gives us any shot at winning it again. Dabo is the man next to the man. If he keeps this up it in 20 years sports historians will be talking about the two giants of Alabama and Clemson. Hard to be a truly great team with no competition. Beating Clemson is not like beating UCF. History will look on our victories over them even kinder now. If they are there next year we will beat them with out a doubt.

    Saban is still "the man".... Dabo is the unquestioned 2nd place at the moment and it's a pretty big drop behind them both.

    I don't want Dabo to win another championship unless it is when he replaces Saban. If that happens, I think Dabo could actually surpass Saban and Bear Bryant, only because he is fairly young right now and has plenty of time.
    I don't EVER want him to be our coach. And if he ever is, he STILL won't replace Saban.

    Agreed. Clemson will have to lose two games to not make it in. The only other scenario they would not be in would be 4 undefeated Power 5 teams.

    Re: Is Dabo Now " The Man " ?

    I find it humorous that every time Bama/Saban loses a game the media, other fanbases, some in our fanbase say the Bama dynasty is over and Saban is not the man any more and the game has passed him by. History says otherwise and we/Saban prove it. Not surprised with the media and other fanbases since that is what they want so badly but we in our fanbase should know better, at least for the next 5-7 years. Heard several callers on Bham local radio say Saban is done and needs to be replaced (and Dabo was mentioned from some).

    I hope that’s all the pundits talk about this entire offseason. I want them saying Dabo has surpassed Saban now as the best coach in football. Let them anoint Lawerence as the Heisman front runner. The pressure for 2019 Clemson will be unreal.

    No. When almost all your conference games are essentially a 'bye-week' in the juggernaut that is the ACC....
