Uh, you don't see any "Saban hate or fatigue" here because he's this message board's head coach. Try spending a little time on other teams' message boards and just read the subject lines. There's an overwhelming amount of Saban/Bama envy, hate and fatigue.
Did you really think that someone here wasn't already aware that Nick is college football's highest paid coach?
Lovie Smith approves this message
I always root for him. I want him to keep getting better and better as a head coach. If he takes Clemson and makes them a national championship contender every season, then he could do real damage at Alabama. When Saban leaves (hopefully a long time from now), I want us to have clear cut options to choose from. I want those options to be proven winners. Whether it be Dabo, Franklin, smart, etc... I don't care as long as they win
Clemson defeated a truly elite program for the first time under Dabo, they finished with 11 wins for thr first time in like 30 years (only the 4th time in school history with 11+ wins), and we have people complaining about a man getting emotional? Somewhere down the line society fooled everyone into thinking that a man showing emotions is a sign of weakness... I say it's weakness for a man to bottle everything up in a failed attempt to pretend he has it all together. The man was overjoyed and emotional. Let him have his day.
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Cor 10:4
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
Huh??? Franklin and Muschamp are more like CNS than Dabo
ah, screw it...nevermind.

Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,

not everyone does leadership the way those individuals you mentioned. they were great leaders, but there are other ways to lead. Whatever he is doing seems to be working for him. What is more important is how his players feel about him. He seems genuine to me. I am an army officer and the best advise i ever got from one of my NCOs was to be myself. He said you can't fool "joe"! what he was saying was that your people will see through bullshit. You may not like Dabo, but if his players believe in him, they will kill themselves to do what he says. That my friend is leadership. Dabo believe what he is saying. That make him very dangerous. I fear him more than most coaches I see on a daily basis. Dabo thinks he can beat nick saban. He really believes it. He wont quit. he will kill himself until he accomplishes that goal. you should respect that. sun tsu said always respect your enemy

Did you just compare James Franklin to him? I had to read that twice to make sure I saw that correctly.
James Franklin is a very smart person.
Losing doesn't make me want to quit. It makes me want to fight that much harder-Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant
I don't hate you but I don't know you. That said, I can assure you that if YOU knew Dabo, you would be every bit as big of a fan of his as I am. Sure he wears his emotion on his sleeve but his character and integrity are beyond questioning. His style may ultimately hurt him at some point but that may be the best way to win at Clemson----which he is doing. Message boards are open forums and you are free to post what you want but yours shows how little you know about a person and situation. Down vote from me.
Think he's closer to 42 but he's a Bama guy so I'll give him a pass.
