    I think that the majority agree with your take for the most part. ++++++++++++++++++ Not from reading the posts on this board. Most think that Clemson is the center of hell and anyone who cheers for them is a lost soul and their head coach is Satan.

    I hope that you wouldn't seriously want to be a bagman for USC. Why stoop to the level of the Auburns and UNCs of the world? +++++++++++++++++++ That post was obviously sarcastic. I dont' want to be a bagman, although one day hopefully I will have enough money to fill the bag. I would LOVE to stoop to the level of Auburn and win a NC. Sorry but that's the truth.

    I'd love to be a bag man. I might even buy a pimped out benz or something and have someone ride me around....wear a pinky ring, and smoke cigars all day. Roll up to some kids mailbox and drop off a brick of cash with a tigerpaw stamped on the envelope.

    Be awesome to go head to head with other bag men who steal recruits from the University of South Carolina as well.

    Read so many post on here about Clemson cheating....buying players. No doubt that should be expected on a Gamecock message board. But after long day, horrible golf game, and so-so start to the sales quarter...I'm gonna respond.

    1. Clemson might cheat their asses off...I don't know, but if we did....we'd cheat instate too. Clemson turns USC in countless times a year and vice versa. They go into a file and when a team gets investigated....investigator digs up all that dirt and looks into each email, inquiry from different schools ect.

    2. Dabo Swinney is an incredible salesman. He takes pride in it. He's made his name in coaching as a incredible recruiter. He lives and breathes it. He hired guys like Dan Brooks, Harbinson, Jeff Scott...that are great recruiters as well. Sure we screw up clock management...had a horrible scheme, might not "develop" our players...but nobody can doubt how well or how much effort our HC and other coaches put forth in recruiting.

    I don't think Spurrier lives and breathes it like a Saban, Bobby Bowden once did, or Ron Zook. He's just not that way, and I think that can filter down. Just look at him missing in homes ect last season. Just not a priority for him, and I think that can filter down the staff. Yall have an awesome staff...but I'd say recruiting is Clemson's strength...and I'd say recruiting is an area of development for yalls staff.

    3. How many out of state players have yall gotten that the big boys really wanted? Culliver? Did yall hire his coach as a GA? Know that was rumor....but have yall beaten out The Bama's, Gators, Noles...ect? No doubt yall've done great in state. Clowney, Gilmore, Holloman, Jeffrey, all incredible talents that could start anywhere. So why so shocked with Goldman doesn't have yall in Top 7? How many true out of state guys officially visit? Come to camp? Is SOS at camp? Have you ever signed an OOS 5 star? All this goes back to the whole making recruiting a priority....Hell, SOS still calls it recruiting season. Well that season is year around...and starts when the kids are Freshman or Sophomore's in HS.

    4. Can't tell you the number of thread's I've seen on here about..."Clemson now high bidder for Clowney", "Clemson paying Lexington HC", "Clemson paid for Parker at Beaufort". So were these true? Anyone can make up something on a message board, and for some reason it becomes fact because some random guy types it out on a message board.

    5. When is the last time we won a heads up recruiting battle vs yall? Suprisingly...we don't have many...but I'd say the following were battles....

    Gilmore
    Holloman
    Clowney?
    Parker LB
    Dukes
    Dukes buddy
    Shaq Roland?

    We are under the Mendoza line the last couple of years in true head to head IYAM.

    I can promise you...if we are cheating...we could care less if it's done in state vs out of state. You don't think FSU, Miami, UF, UGA, Arky, UNC aren't major pissed when a 7 loss team comes in and pulls a kid out they've invested 2 or 3 years in recruiting?

    6. Clemson does an awesome job getting kids to come to camp...pretty sure Bellamy, Watkins, Stewart, other LB, 5 star safety who went to LSU, kid from Arky, all came to Clemson's camp as juniors or so. 3 days on a college campus is big. And they get treated like kings.

    Overall...every program is different...Auburn, Clemson, UF under Zook, Butch Davis at UNC, Richt at UGA, Brown at Texas, Brown at UNC, Carrol at USC, my boy at LSU....all believe recruiting is the life blood. They live it, breath it...and work amazingly hard at it.

    I view yall more like Chip Kelly at Oregon, Petrino at Arky, Obrien at NCSU, Paul Johnson at GT, Mike Leach at TT...no doubt yall recruit very well, but IMO yalls staff believes solid scheme, player development is both more of a priority than recruiting. Remember the "He'll take his and beat yours" and take yours and beat his"?

    This is a recruiting website at heart...so you wanna see the Bullard's, or Goldman's become Gamecocks and they might....but just know that I'm sure Gator fans used to get pissed when FSU had all that talent as well when Spurrier was there.

    29-7, 34-17. Shove that up your...

    What 30 jobs are more desirable than Clemson?

    Linked list below that have us 11th, 18th, and 22nd. Sure it's opinion, but you act like we are Utah St.

    http://www.collegefootballcafeteria.com/analysis/top-25-coaching-jobs/

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/554716-the-top-50-coaching-jobs-in-college-football#/articles/554716-the-top-50-coaching-jobs-in-college-football/page/48

    http://www.athlonsports.com/college-football/jobs

    I'm not saying that there are 115 more desirable jobs than Clemson. Those lists are 3 people's opinion. I have my own opinion. I don't see how a job in upstate South Carolina in the 4th or 5th best football conference as being one of the 30 most desirable jobs in the country.

    Don't really care if ya'll are cheating...not a single bit.It hasn't gotten you anywhere since 1981. Swinney is a great salesperson, but it's kinda' like getting a new job cause you knew someone that worked there. After 90 days you better produce or you ain't gonna have a job.You gotta know something.Flash forward to this year.... and if Dabo wins less than 8 games he is toast...fine'...done! I don't doubt that Clemson recruits well the last year or so, but it is all for naught if you can't develop the players, just a huge waste of money, talent, and time.If you get the kids to camp, sure you have a better chance of signing them....but so do we.Spurrier has rarely had to recruit because he hasn't needed to but even SOS realizes that the recruiting game has changed too.We were in the bottom 3rd of the SEC last year in $ spent on the recruiting trail yet we had a top 15 class in the country.Ya' know why? Because we and you can find everything that we need within 4 states and they all border each other..SC, NC, GA, and FLA. We recently have made a push into the NE but that is rare. What HAS happened is that USC has kept the TN,GA,FLA and ALA's from raiding this state recently like in so many years past.There is consistently enough talent within this 4 state area to supply the talent needed to win big so the need to go outside and go head to head with other elite teams is a waste of time, again.To answer your question, yes SOS has been at camp many times over the years cause I saw it myself with my son for 3 years running.Florida was and is a gold mine for recruits and we have both done well there recently and will into the future. Sorry that your sales quarter is off to bad start as I am also in sales and also it 's gotta suck you took a day off in the middle of the week to play golf and have a crappy round. Just recruit a little better and you should be able to improve that to 2 days off in the middle of the week in order to play more.

    I didn't play golf today....I said my golf game sucks....

    I'd never call a round of golf...."a golf game".

    I didn't say any of it mattered...I didn't say our recruiting would lead us back to where I wish we were as a program...

    Yall act like I said...."Clemson is gonna be bad ass in 3 years...we keep recruiting like we have been...load up on players...we will be kickin ass and taking names in 3 years, and we def aren't cheating, we are just recruiting machines and we are awesome...so much better than yall gonna be in 3 years...just wait and see...damn clemson gonna be good...we rock".

    I didn't say that, nor do I think that.

    I simply said...Clemson recruits well and very hard, and our coach is good at it.

    Does that mean we will be good? Ron Zook wasn't...Bobby Bowden wasn't the last 7 to 10...so who knows.

    AllenWilliams also said Clemson was the high bidder for Clowney....and that Holloman was soft, not a "true rock hill boy", and overrated.

    Baker said Clemson was "HIS RIVAL" and he didn't care what people said about him, he would do whatever or say whatever to bring down "his rival". Think he said he hated them as well to top it off....

    Whether you agree or disagree with what he's saying, he does make a valid point. If I remember correctly, all of that stuff was said on here by those posters. BTW I don't get into all of the cheating allegations like most on these message boards do. Most of that stuff is just regurgitated rumors that they hear from others. I also don't believe 99% of the posters that claim to be connected to the program actually are as connected as they would like you or lead you to believe.

    What hypocricy?

    You know Dabo called me when my dad died? He tried to pray with me on the phone.... You know he took the team to Bower's dad's visitation or funeral? You know he's in church every Sunday?

    Sure he let's parents...recruits know he's a church goer...no doubt. I am too...and multiple times a week I act like a complete moron/ass hole and regret a ton of things I say or do.

    I just don't know how he is a hypocrite.

    I think he's a douche...and he aggrivates me with a lot of the things he says and does, but I'm not sure he's a hypocrite.

    Just curious. Why would Dabo call you when your dad passed away? Are you some how connected to the program or does he just happen to be a family friend?

    Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty

  • All I know is this...you say that if you guys were cheating, you'd be doing it instate too. I disagree. We've heard multiple times that you guys would not do that so close to home because of Steve Spurrier. If he caught wind of it he'd turn you guys in. So, you turn to out of state kids and recruit in states like Florida where it is safer. Those schools (Florida) turn the other cheek because they are doing it as well.....Miami, for example.

    I think you're mistaken on a couple of accounts.....to say that we value recruiting less, I believe, is simply wrong.......I think our staff came to a realization that there is a wealth of talent in state year in and year out, so we focused on keeping those kids at home.....u look at our team this year, and most of the core guys are sc boys.......Lattimore, Gilmore, Jeffrey, Clowney..........then you start pulling guys from surrounding states that you have evaluated and are high on and you've got a good basis to be solid year in and year out......frankly, I'm no genius, but that makes more sense to me than going after a lot of highly ranked kids out of state and having our main focus be them....that's not saying we aren't going after those kids, but our priority, besides position needs, is getting the state locked......I believe spurrier has even said this much on a couple of occasions....

    Another thing we've gotten better about imo, is judging character......we've learned it to be true from the baseball team that you don't always got to have superior talent to win......but its a necessity that you have a camaraderie, brotherhood, whatever you want to call it amongst the team.....and its important to have goals and a vision that everybody shares..........you can see it being infused into our football team....from senior leadership, to everybody pushing each other on the field, to the interviews with players and coaches......I think one of the most telling things this camp so far was when travian robertson lead team drills for the d-line.....I believe up until THIS year That would have never happened......maybe it has happened and I just don't know it.....but you think about the star power on that line.....Ingram, Taylor, Clowney, Jerideau.....and I bet none of them flinched in doing the drills bc it was a fellow player leading them.....there's a new DNA at USC.........and that's why I have no doubt that our d-line will be the best in the nation......I can't tell you how good our coaches must feel having this team this year.....I use to coach 1st and 2nd grade boys basketbal l (I know, not quite college football!) But I remember in my 6 years coaching my best team (went 7-1) was just a different breed of team.....even at that young of an age and even though it took them a while to grasp things, I could tell that they were listening, and trying to get the plays that I was trying to teach them.....and my proudest moment was during the first game we actually started running the plays, (they were basically just screens, but I'm tellin ya, I had tears in my eyes!) And people would come up (other coaches even!) And ask how I got them to be so organized, and all I could tell them was that I just had a great group of kids that listened and learned, and it wasn't anything special I did!!! But I can tell ya it must feel so good for our coaches to have a team like ours this year!!

    Also wanna say regarding us going up against other teams that the past couple recruiting cycles we've gone up against Alabama, Florida, Georgia, SoCal, Auburn, and I think Miami and maybe Florida st and won on recruits....

    Also would like to say that even with Florida's Friday night lights on the same weekend as our Gamecock showcase, that there was still a WEALTH of talent at our camp, and if we got in on some of those prospects while they camped here, then we have gotten a EXCELLENT jump on the class of 2013!!!

  • It's amazing you are allowed to post something like that on this board without getting banned Woodrow. Typically like most of your post but what the heck man. I got banned from Clemson's board for just asking a simple question about Kyle Parker. I can tell you that TBS gives your the freedom of speech that is not reciprocal on any Clemson board. With that said hopefully you feel better with the trivial post you just made. The truth is USC is in the SEC. We are the better instate flavor right now. The only thing I will say is that some of our fans do concern themselves way too much with Clemson but the fact is Clemson fans are just as bad and your post now proves it.

    No matter what you think, I really believe that South Carolina under Steve Spurrier runs a very clean program. I can't comment on which schools don't cheat, but I can name plenty that probably do.

  • I think the way Woodrow's argument should be worded is this:
    "Dabo loves and puts more time into recruiting than SOS"

    You can't say that you're better recruiters because I feel like that encompasses all aspects of recruiting (i.e. evaluations). Your head coach might put a LOT more time into it than our's, but that doesn't mean that your staff as a whole if full of "better" recruiters. It's easy to have a good personality, send out a scholarship to every player rated in the Top 100 on a recruiting website, and then start calling him and get him on campus then challenge him to "be a man" on signing day.

    then do cheat for Meeks....
    Then don't cheat for Clowney

    Did Auburn try and cheat/buy Lattimore? They don't do it in state, but only do it out of state right?
    Did Bama try and cheat/buy Clowney? They don't do it in state, only out of state...

They have a good feel from what those kids will be able to do in the future..... our coaches love to get the kids in for camp to be able to run them through the paces and see what type of work ethic, motor, and how they respond to coaching...........all part of good recruiting.....I think our guys now do a jam up job on that front

    I think the way Woodrow's argument should be worded is this: "Dabo loves and puts more time into recruiting than SOS"

    You can't say that you're better recruiters because I feel like that encompasses all aspects of recruiting (i.e. evaluations). Your head coach might put a LOT more time into it than our's, but that doesn't mean that your staff as a whole if full of "better" recruiters. It's easy to have a good personality, send out a scholarship to every player rated in the Top 100 on a recruiting website, and then start calling him and get him on campus then challenge him to "be a man" on signing day.

    Totally agree with your post, and that was my point in making my original one.

    Dabo is good at it....knows fans like it, knows its the only reason he is our HC...so if u suck at everything else...you might as well try to excel at your one positive.
