    I believe in Dabo's terminology, this is called "bearing false witness."

    I'm a Christian myself, but I go by the advice in the Bible that prayer is something that is a private matter between the one praying and the One being prayed to.

    are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and
    in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.

    This is clearly the narrative that Clemson is pushing, I'm sure in recruiting. We also win at an elite level but we have FUN. We have putt putt golf!

    Reminds me of when Lane Johnson said he'd rather have 1 ring and have fun than play with the Patriots and have 5 and be miserable.

    We're gonna be just fine. Eventually having so much fun will catch up to them.

    Last thing I'll say on this for now is that I don't have an issue with Dabo being public in his faith. What I have a problem with is the cheeseball, prosperity gospel nonsense that misinterprets Phillipians 4:13 at every opportunity.

    Someone mentioned “burning bridges“, Saban and the process still have a lot of friends and contacts in the nfl.

    Mr. Renfrow could use a slice of humble pie. Apparently Dabo didn’t get that message across to him.

    Also, love having more motivational material for the training room.

    The first thing Mr. Renfrow should do, the first day of camp with the Patriots, is give Belichick a wet willie. Just to liven things up a bit and give it that fambly atmosphere. Yeah, that's the ticket.

He's just as ready-made for the national media/general public to hate as Saban's anal retentive boss vibe. It is just for different reasons. People love a story about winning but they really don't love the winners...especially once they've over-stayed their welcome in the national consciousness.
    You have an excellent way with words. Hats off, and AGREED!

    It's going to get him. Right now the media is more concerned with seeing Saban/Alabama "slayed" and feeding on what they perceive as the remains of a dead dynasty. But as soon as that itch is scratched, and if Dabo and Clemson continue to be in the spotlight. They will turn on him like a pack of wolves chasing a three legged dog.

    What kind of prayer is he leading? Pretty sure Alabama does the Lord's Prayer before leaving the locker room, but I'm not positive.

    Can you elaborate, please?
