Full circle for tater. Probably should have done that athletic leadership thing like 30 years ago.

Does he still look like he was stung by a swarm of yellow jackets? The last pic I saw of him he looked "inflated".
My BIL had a few friends on the UNA staff when he was there. Apparently, he would come to staff meetings with a KFC bucket full of soda.

Dabo "Bobby I finally brought the better son to Clemson"

Joking aside, he was probably one of the most underrated game day coaches ever.

Lol. But he did take win 20 games in 2 years with a team that only won 10 in two years under dye.
True, but as much as I hate the “someone else’s players” cliché, there was a big drop off once his sub par recruiting practices became more apparent. Dameyune Craig basically being the offense covered a lot of those holes, but things fell apart quickly thereafter. We were pretty much full air raid in 98-99 because his idea for what a RB should be differed a lot from what actually worked. Took us a couple of years to recover.

It it was strange not having a running game until Tommy brought in some quality line recruits and Rudi Johnson.

Y'all can laugh if you want, but I've got two words for you: Butch Jones.

Look, anyone who has coached a top D1 program has forgotten more about football than most any of us here will ever know, and I guarantee that even if Bowden is just dissecting film, he's better equipped to do so than almost any GA in the country.

Clemson didn't get worse by doing this.

Two more words, Lane Kiffin.

Agreed, but this is still hilarious.

I get it, but at least Butch is an intern. Bowden is going to be a GA.

Yeah, and two more words for you: Ore-Ida. As in Saban's pronouncement, "Good thing Dabo got him interned up at an inflated rate, Ore-Ida hired him myself as nutritional analyst."

1. Why is there such a thing as a degree or graduate degree in “athletic leadership?”

2. Why is a 63 yo former head football coach of D1 trying to get this? His last chance to get that elusive A? Oooh oooh oooh call on meeeeee!!!!

Am i out of touch or just pretentious?
