    It would be the same for Jimbo if FSU wins. His first year at FSU was Urban's last at Florida and FSU won.

    I believe the records among them are:

    Jimbo: 6-4 (5-4 vs Dabo, 1-0 vs Urban)
    Dabo: 7-6
    Saban: 3-3 (2-2 vs Urban)
    Urban: 2-5

    I think Urban and Saban are this:
    Florida vs Bama - (2-2) (05, 06, 08, 09)
    Ohio St > Bama (1-0),
    So Urban is 3-2 vs Saban, and 3-5 overall.

    Clemson Coach Caught Showing His True Character During Trump Visit When He Thought No One Was Watching

    The NCAA champion Clemson Tigers football team visited the White House on Monday, where they were honored by President Donald Trump.

    But one of the most fascinating and revealing moments — involving Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney — occurred when no one was watching. Well, almost no one.

    Cliff Sims, a special assistant to President Trump, said he got caught in a massive security line made up of Clemson players and coaches in the “sweltering heat.” The Trump administration official was able to get in relatively early, so he didn’t have to sit in the heat for long.

    As the “massive Clemson entourage” filed through the metal detectors at the White House, Sims said he waited for a House aid to escort him to a meeting.

    The line was nearly concluded when Sims said he saw an unexpected face — that of Coach Swinney. He told the story of “leadership” on his Facebook page on Monday:

    The massive Clemson entourage kept slowly piling in. About 15 minutes later, near the end of the line, Coach Swinney walked in, still wearing his suit but now totally drenched in sweat.

    In spite of being the most senior/important/famous person there, he didn't skip the line. He didn't complain. He let almost everyone else go in front of him.

    That's leadership.

    Leaders are often defined by what they do when they think no one is watching.

    Sims also shared the message of Swinney’s speech at the White House:

    During his speech at the White House, he talked about people focusing on life's big moments, while forgetting that, really, life is what happens between those big moments — the small things — like having built your character to the point that you don't even cut corners in the blistering heat outside the U.S. Capitol, even though you've already won the National Championship and don't have anything left to prove.

    Read the full post here:

    And even though Sims is from Alabama, he said he’ll be rooting for Swinney and the Clemson Tigers to repeat next season because of what he witnessed.

    “But after what I saw today, I know Coach Swinney will have his boys ready — both for the game and what comes after,” he wrote.

    Dabo: 'I can spend 5 minutes at a place and know exactly what their culture is'

    Posted by: Chris Vannini on Thursday June 22,


    [​IMG]

    Dabo Swinney says he senses a high school program’s culture right away, and it doesn’t matter if they have the nicest tools.

    Swinney recently recorded an hourlong interview on organizational culture for the Southern Textile Association / Join Fiber Buyer annual meeting in South Carolina. Asked about company culture, he compared it to recruiting.

    “When you get around a company that’s got a great culture, you can smell it. You see it on the walls. You hear it,” Swinney said. “That’s why I like to go on the road in December and January recruiting. I love to go to these schools, and I can spend five minutes at a place and know exactly what type of culture they’re coming from. It’s a culture of commitment, or it’s a culture of compromise. I can tell just like that.

    “Sometimes, I go to these places that don’t have a whole lot, school’s in bad shape, but there’s so much pride in what they have. Sometimes I go to schools that have a lot, and it’s a mess. There’s entitlement, instead of empowerment. This is a program of empowerment here. That’s the culture we’ve established.”

    It’s a similar to comment to what Urban Meyer told campers recently. The tone that’s set shortly after walking in the door

    Swinney said he’s kept the Clemson culture focused on four factors: graduate players, give them "tools for life," have a good college experience and be a champion. It hasn’t changed since he took over. It's a lot of clichés, but it comes down to relationships, and Swinney's had the results, especially coming off a national title.

    “Back when I was coming up, go run the bleachers, and you went and did it, asked no questions,” Swinney said. “Now, the difference in these kids, they’ll still do, but you have to be able to tell them why. If you can’t articulate why, then they ain’t listening to you. That goes back to the relationships. The whole philosophy of our program, the root of it, it relationship.

    “If you go in our staff room, you’ll see a graphic, our philosophy is to serve their heart, not their talent. That’s the philosophy of our program. Everything else will take care of itself.”

    A guest appearance by Dabo Swinney at Big 12 media days. "This should be a flag," says Walt Anderson, the league's coordinator of officials in discussing coach conduct. "We are going to miss calls," Anderson said, "but you need to show your disgust on a more appropriate way." In other words, stay on the sideline.

    If the refs are going to allow Bama's players to target and intentionally try to knock out our players then they should swallow their flag when Dabo gives it to them.
