Never heard that. Vince Dooley was the one who wanted, and pushed for USC to enter the SEC. Recall that the split between USC and Clemson and the ACC was still very fresh and painful. No way would they have admitted that they were wrong and done the same thing. This was before TV deals and cable networks so the concept of big money hadnt sunk in yet.
Well..its always been a given that they would drop the hammer after unc's decades of crimes. Guess they decided that FAMU should the whipping boy
I couldnt care less about missouri after the way they have acted in several different sports in recent years. But on this - im on their side. The acc is the crookedest conference in recent years, but they get away with it all, because the ncaa basketball tournament runs the ncaa. Plus, the ncaa needs the acc to be able to compete with the SEC. Sooo...too bad for missouri...they will pay a ridiculous penalty to try and cover up for the ncaa's blatant handling of acc favorites. (clemson PUD violations another example of ncaa hypocrisy in favor of acc school)
Tell us something that we didnt know. We were on the cusp of being legit. Had beaten Bama soundly, 5 straight over clemson, 3 consecutive top 10 finishes-highest being final ranking of #4- and 2 years later 3-9 and in the midst of a 5 game losing streak to clemson....and kentucky(not a slam, as kentucky is clearly the best team at the moment). So yea steve.... you pulled a Colts on us, loaded up the moving van and disappeared in the middle of the night leaving that same dysfunctional staff to try and muddle through it all.
Because lets face it...this website really only cares about bama. Anything else is just filler between stories from the state of alabama. So they are lazy and uninterested in the stories that they run about anyone else.
Wow...nice to see an SEC website trashing one of its own schools while fawning over the coach of an acc school. To elevate the crap that spews from dabos mouth to this page, is absurd. clemson fans want the world to rate them as the "biggest, bestest ever to play the sport" team in the whole wide world. In case you were unaware, dabo is famous for his pre scripted rants. This one came from a question that hade ZERO relationship to his answer. He did this divert attention from the fact that his coaching staff appears to be falling apart. His coaches and his #2 in America were torched for the most yards ever by a QB in the series going back over 120 years, and second most in the history of his school, and his vaunted defense had given up more yards by halftime that ANY other school was able to put up the entire year. Oh - and his awesome defense gave up 5 passing TD's. So he had to divert attention away from his failure as a head coach who padded his resume against the 6th worst conference in America. And he did it by attacking his fans. And you played right into his hands by covering it as if it were legitimate. Remember...nothing he says is "unscripted", and it is always going to divert his sheep and the loyal media into telling the story that he wants told.
