    Vilma played at UM 2000-2003. Shannon was with Dolphins 2000, but was UM DC for 2001-2005.

      If you are insinuating Dabo backfilling Saban and ALA, I think you are mistaken. I can't imagine ANYONE wanting to follow Saban, despite the resources and pre-built machine running at ALA. I do think Dabo stays at CLEM and retires from the empire he built for himself with lower expectations that Bama will ever consider having, in an easier conference than the SEC. Dabo will be sitting pretty for a long time, he is what Jimbo was trying to be. Once king Saban retires, Dabo will be one of the top in the coaching landscape, but he won't be leaving Clemson.

      It was a typo. He meant Dabol.

          Thanks. Wonder If this says anything about Shannon's future with the program?

            Because he had a show cause, the SEC would have to sign off on it.

              Interesting in that interview they said Frost would command as much money as it would take to get Stoops out of retirement

              Yep it seems like it really is done now. Quite a few who said we were just waiting for Kelly's signature claim its a done deal now its just whenever they decide the best time to announce it is.

              Wednesday or Thursday would be good I think - after the playoff rankings and get a few days press before this weekend also.

              Before the CFP announcement would send shockwaves that we are back!!!!!

                If he can get it then good for him. Prefer if we don’t get it he gets as far away from here as possible.

                I think the lady gators play BBall tonight and the men play Thursday so my guess is tomorrow or Friday, I would suspect they would want to schedule around other teams.. just a hunch

                  Schedule looks weak this weekend. It’d dominate the landscape

                      On a semi-related note.....is Kelly any good at his football commentating job? I don't think I've ever seen him on the college football set at ESPN...or is he with Fox?

                        Would you rather compete with them on your home turf, or have to compete with the same people but have to travel and convince kids to leave home.
