    I was coming back from the library, was parked at Brooks, and listened to the whole press conference in my truck. It was a gloomy, rainy day.

    I was really upset at the time.

    I was getting out of class. I remember not being happy at all with the hire.

    Never been happier to be so wrong.

    Only one of the three contentions here is likely true.

    I remember I was in high school math class when he got announced as interim coach, and despite us not being allowed to have phones at school I announced to the class that “Day-bo Swinney” was now our coach. Didn’t know shit about the guy other than he coached WRs.

    I was a student at Clemson and was not very happy. It seemed like most at Clemson were pretty annoyed by the idea of a wr coach being named head coach. I was all aboard the Gary Patterson train at the time.

    She was magical. When Lauren was with John leake I knew her very well I think I told the story a while back but everything is 100%. I dipped the reflection pond with her too. I believe I still have quite a few pics of the friendship.

    I highly doubt this claim.

    But yeah Martin was the math building. Hardin was the history building that I think was one of the oldest buildings on campus but the interior was nice after they renovated it.

    They actually made most of the rooms in Martin nice recently but I have long maintained they should tear down that dump. It's a pretty big eyesore from the exterior that probably looked a lot better in the 90s.

    Don't remember where I was but recall that I was so happy. Coach Swinney was exactly who I had wanted while the rest of you clamored for Muschamp, Calhoun, and Patterson. I knew coach Swinney would win bigly

    Not likely. My buddy was dating Bowden's daughter...so this claim could be dispelled rather easily.


    As far as Dabo...initially, I was not happy; but also not devastated. Mainly because Gary Patterson wanted the job very badly; and obviously he was a more sure thing in my mind at the time.

    I knew a bunch of people who loved Dabo internally and swore his personality was perfect and he would succeed. Therefore, I rationalized the hire in my mind by saying, well, Urban Meyer went from WR coach to head coach with no coordinator experience...as long as he can continue to recruit great and he could hire great coordinators we might be OK. Obviously did not imagine that success would mean back-to-back National Championship appearances and a National Championship. Just amazing where he's taken us as a program. And like Dabo always says...the best is yet to come.

    Kudo to TDP and his foresight.

    I’m pretty sure Patterson told TDP that he wanted $3 million per year or he wouldn’t even interview. Think that would have put him in the top 5 CFB salaries at the time.

    Might be misremembering.

    I had the day off and watched the press conference. I was pretty excited before the press conference and downright confident afterwards.

    I remember reading TI and thinking our fan base was a modern day Tennessee with the coaching list wish list. I had a gut feeling that Dabo would be a good hire. Started a "Give me Dabo or give me death" thread on TI that got some interesting responses.

    I really felt like we were a Tommy Bowden with a set of nuts away from being a yearly contender in the ACC.

    That's the only person I knew of that dated her other than her hs days. I've told the story on here before. I wasn't friends with her and she never talked but she was there often

    I was disappointed but felt good after hearing the press conference. Those good feelings quickly disappeared during the 2010 season.
