    Re: Dabo - Citadel was the toughest team Bama faced before Georgia

    I know what Dabo meant and he's right in what he meant. But the Citadel wasn't our "toughest game" because they were actually better than LSU, aTm or any other SEC team we played. It was our toughest game because though we have stud athletes up and down the roster. They are still amateurs and are kids. Their effort and focus is highly inconsistent from game to game and many times play to play. It's what makes college football better (in my opinion) than the NFL. You get a more inconsistent product where a Charlotte Southern Sisters of the Poor can waltz into Neyland Stadium and beat the Vols.

    No, he's intentionally saying something that he knows is completely untrue in order to make Clempson's AAC-like schedule seem 'not so bad'. There's no rationalization for what he said and he's incorrect, and everyone in the room knows it.

    Thing is - he could have just said that. He needs to keep the word "Alabama" out of his mouth. He takes every opportunity to poke the bear. I hope he gets mauled.

    That Citadel game had me shaking my head the first half.

    Dabo really likes those passive aggressive comments directed at Alabama . Seems he canít keep The Crimson Tide out of his mind.

    I understand what you are saying But politely disagree. Bama played Citadel before the Barn. I’m sure, there was a lot of preparation for Malzahn’s offense that week , and less on the Citadel

    Waiting for an ESPN commentator to call out his B. S. or how the GOAT and Alabama are living rent free in his head. Has that happened in case I missed it?

    While it's true that Dabo made those comments about The Citadel the sportswriter in the link mistakenly says that Clemson plays The Citadel on Saturday which is false. Clemson hosts UNC-Charlotte on Saturday. They host The Citadel in 2020.

    Coach Aw Shucks should worry about his team..........I think he secretly desires to coach at Bama someday, despite his comments to the contrary

    Dabo is the last coach who should be talking ab out another school's schedule. Tennessee, theoretically, could win 7-8 games if they had Clemson cupcake soft schedule.

    I think the fact that he continues to side step the question (when he's asked) makes it obvious he's got Bama on his mind. I know a few Clemson fans that it bothers when he's asked about potentially coaching at Bama and Dabo side steps. I honestly don't think it's much of a secret.

    Even if that is true, I watched that game and you could tell the team was sleep walking through the first half. With the talent being what it is between the two teams. Prepping for Auburn still shouldn't have caused a first half performance like that. That, IMO, was more attributed to 18-22 year old's doing what they do best and that's being highly unpredictable and inconsistent. Consistency in effort seems to be what Coach Saban harps on the most.
