I'm sorry 80, this mentality comes off as spoiled and entitled. The moral of the article was to appreciate how far the team has come. It was not "look at us, we've reached the finish line and we're the best"

I have no doubt Dabo and his team are heartbroken about the way the season ended. I have no doubt there will be "tweaks" to the system- whether they be public (like a coaching change) or private (changing two practice periods a week to special teams only). Dabo doesn't like losing, and implying that he does because Coach X or Coach Y isn't fired is spoiled and selfish behavior.

Make no mistake, I want the goals of this program to be high. Being critical of every practice and game decision for 364 days is not the way I prefer to go about it.
This has to be the best and most sensible response on a thread I have ever read.

For contexted, 1975 is the worst season in the modern of Clemson football as the Tigers went 2-9 that year.

You were, unfortunately, the DB that got caught in the pick play. I'm sorry.
I have spent the entire season watching certain posters hammer certain groups relentlessly. No, you do not belong on this list.

Yes, losing a game sucks. Having to hear about how bad everything is and watching mud being thrown all around doesn't change anything and generally ruins my views on what was, in effect, a pretty dang good season.

No worries at all! I totally get it. I feel many can be negative also. And I can be a guilty party also at times. Most of the time it's just a quick reaction after a loss or maybe just a bad day in general. I think we all know who can be glass empty folks on certain topics. And some are like that on all. This is a chat board but negativity can get old. There's enough of it outside Clemson sports so this should be a good relief from that.

I appreciate it!
