    Default Where would they have been had this not have happened

    Long time client was in my office(U5C alumni ) .

    Naturally we got to talking football of both schools, his wife is Clemson alumni

    This question came up in our conversation when talking about U5C current HC situation



    Where do both schools think they would have ended up had Clemson not let Danny Ford get away at the time he did and had the Late Joe Morrison not have passed away ???


    He felt BOTH schools at time these things hit were about to really take off Nationally , not that they would have been on level with Bama, OSU, ND of the times but in the mix year in and year out

    Probation. They maybe would have made sure the Trans Am goes to somebody that actually ends up at their school.

    Let Danny Ford get away? You mean sacrifice him to save facing major NCAA sanctions?

    The only break Clemson got is when Spurrier left , he owned that ass. I believe Dabo about lost his job.

    What does this have to do with Ford and Morrison and Georgia not winning a national championship since before either of them left?
    When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh-

    " let Danny Ford get away"?!?!?! He was embroiled in one of the largest cheating plots in college football history.

    Hell this may be a surprise but ALL of them did this back then, does that make it right. NO but they were only ones that got caught.

    Throw this part of it out of the equation , just pure coaching and recruiting.

    Fortunately for Spurrier, 5 or so generational in state kids picked u of SC, when that dried up, so did the ole ball coaches desire to coach. Dabo took his lumps but went out and got better assistants and then better players and now he owns u of SC.

    Bullsh*t! The culture off cheating was so engrained that the Klimpsux students wore T-shirts bragging about it.

    "Everybody is doing it" is not that correct answer.

    Clemson fans always say that to justify their actions.

    They better get a handle on their boosters.....looks like they are getting out of control ........again.

    Sounds like “the butthurt is oozing out”, as Catdaddy would say..,
