How Dabo built Clemson into a monster

If Dabo has one true gift, it’s his ability to somehow convince the world that he’s an underdog, even after two national championships in three years. Earlier this spring, Swinney noted that, heck, his Tigers had never won back-to-back titles. That’s the type of thing only big, bad Alabama does, and here’s “little old Clemson” trying to do the impossible once again. That narrative is a tough sell these days. Clemson starts 2019 as the preseason No. 1 for the first time ever, has spent 60 straight weeks in the Top 7, and has a 2020 recruiting class that could be among the best ever by any school. SEC programs now measure themselves against Clemson, not Alabama. The Tigers have become college football’s premier program, the model for success. That’s not too shabby for a walk-on receiver with a knack for selling commercial real estate. Now he just has to figure out how to keep feeding this monster.


Yellow Jackets and Tigers, oh my!
