Default Do you like the fact Swinney and Beamer are friends?

Last night, Shane Beamer and Dabo Swinney said they are good friends at the Coaches for Charity event in Greenville.

Should they let this out in the public? Or is it better for the rivalry for them not to be friends.

I really dont think it matters.

Unless the coach is a jerk like Muschamp or Doreen most coaches have a friendly relationship with other coaches.

The rivalry is not really a thing when one of the rivals sucks for long stretches.

How did Dabo put it ? I know its close to this " His children's grandchildren will never see this as a rivalry. It's more like domination "

I wouldn't expect them to say anything else publicly. I imagine those two get along well.

Will you and I know that there are some coaches that Dabo acts like he gets along with fine publicly but we know they aren't friends.

My only observation is that Clemson usually struggles with coaches that Dabo respects. Mack Brown, Dino, Saban (well everyone struggles with Saban). It's likely pure coincidence, but I wonder if Dabo slightly let's his foot off the gas unintentionally against those coaches (minus Saban).

There should never be any reason, ever, that we struggle with Syracuse. Talent-wise, it should be a 50ish to 10ish game every year, but somehow they make it tough. All due respect to Dino.

Dave Doeren is high on the prime suspects list here. I would also imagine Lane Kiffin isn't on the Christmas card list either. Manny Diaz wouldn't shock me.
