    With sprint hurdle PRs of 13.28 and 8.25, she can only do that in smaller meets (i.e. where she can win).

    Well, she would look foolish if she did that after finishing last.

    I know and it looks like she's trying to outdo Tara Davis. I hope she only does that when she wins.

    Holy smokes. Well, if you got it...I guess that's the theme.

    Actually, I doubt Dabo can understand the new rules. He continues to have the intelligence of an electrical outlet.

    Many are hoping for the latter!

    In an article that bambam would be proud of, the author lambastes Dabo Swinney for his hypocrisy.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...ma/7287575001/

    Best excerpts:

    Dabo Swinney’s incomprehension of capitalism and his lousy metaphors won’t derail Clemson football. What could, though, is the veteran coach's persistent reluctance to embrace evolution within college athletics.Swinney, in a recent interview with ESPN, painted himself as a relic while his sport speeds into a present where players are allowed to earn money off endorsements and may freely transfer without penalty. . . . Swinney clings to the myth of amateurism. Swinney defended his $8.5 million salary by telling ESPN "we live in a capitalist society." Yet, he argued that college athletes earning money devalues their education. In Swinney’s phony capitalism, universities (many of which, including Clemson, are government funded), coaches and administrators bathe in riches from a product supplied by athletes who do not earn wages.

    As Swinney played the hits, he explained his distaste for transfers. "We're also not doing our job as coaches and recruiters if we're bringing in a bunch of transfers," Swinney said, before adding that he’s open to transfers who address specific roster needs. It's fair for Swinney to question whether relying on transfers would hamstring a program from signing, retaining and developing talent, but surely Clemson can add some impact transfers without sacrificing its roster model, particularly to help offset 11 departed transfers.

    While Swinney worries about whether endorsement deals are fool’s gold for athletes, Texas A&M signed a No. 1-ranked recruiting class and Tennessee earned a commitment from five-star quarterback Nico Iamaleava. To what degree NIL deals influenced those developments is difficult to quantify, but know this: Before last summer’s NIL policy change, the Aggies had never signed a No. 1-ranked recruiting class, and Tennessee hasn’t signed a five-star quarterback since 2002.

    Swinney’s message, n: Relish that free education, kiddos. "I've always been about education and the collegiate model and the collegiate experience," he told ESPN, "and I don't think what's been created now is healthy for the game." Never mind that earning coin is not proven to detract from "the college experience." Under Swinney, Clemson’s success throughout the 2010s was trumped only by Alabama. But in an era when players can earn money off endorsements and freely shop themselves to other scho ols, the coaches who embrace and trumpet their athletes’ profitability seem best-equipped to attract and retain talent. Swinney’s resistance to evolutions within his sport threatens Clemson's standing, while SEC programs charge into the new frontier.

    Jimbo Fisher may be enjoying this new era of college football but Dabo Swinney hates it and thinks the whole system needs to be blown up. I wonder if he would feel this way if Clemson didn't finish last season with 3 losses and out of the playoffs while hemorrhaging players through the transfer portal. I doubt that he would have any problems with the system if Clemson's boosters had pockets that were as deep as Texas A&M's boosters.

    This was a non-renewal, not a mid-year revocation. Colleges have long been able to arbitrarily decline to renew any sports scholarship at the end of the academic year, unless the scholarship has wording which guarantees it for multiple years. Revoking it mid-year is more difficult.

    Remember what happened at Tennessee a few years ago, when some freshmen were abruptly kicked off the team before training began? But they kept their scholarships for the remainder of the academic year.
