Clemson Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips’s emotional, passionate, cool, trendy, thoughtless, easy, and wrong hire of Dabo Swinney is looking worse and worse as Dabo once again led Clemson into a road environment and left winless. Alumni Stadium in Boston was quiet and half empty just like Clemson’s offense.
Props to Kevin Steele though whose defense kept Clemson in the game and who is Clemson’s most accomplished football coach. In fact Kevin Steele’s defense got into the end zone more than Offensive Coordinator Billy Napier’s offense (once on a pick 6 vs. zero for the offense).
Clemson falls to 4-4, but no worries. Terry Don Phillips will complete his contract and term as Athletic Director and retire on a lovely pension in a few years and Dabo will stick around to lead Clemson in some super cool television commercials and make up some more cool catch phrases like “all in.”
