Way to go Clemson. You deserve it more than Alabama.
If he wants to give the credit to his preferred deity that is his business. I
give the credit to the players...some of whom also want to give credit to their
favorite deity. I dont think any of their gods exist.
The following sentiment is just as valid as the news article that God won the
football game for Clemson against Alabama.God does not like football, at all.
God is a golfer.
No difference BSR, his inference in the comment about the "grace of
God" lead to his teams win is that God preferred Clemson over Alabama. The
comments about certain fans getting riled about reference to God after a win by
their rival is legitimate. While I don't believe deity plays any role in
such trivial matters, many other's do, obviously so does the Clemson Coach
and that is the point.
Well, my first comment (assuming it isn't modded out of existence by upset
leftists) has been vindicated: lots of known leftists howling about Dabo and the
idea of God blessing righteous people.
Dabo is an outstanding College Football Coach ! Good for him for taking a stand
and making a statement in today's mixed up World !
The funny thing is that while living in the south for a little more that 20
years, what Dabo said is common place, and no one bats an eye to statements like
that. Why people in Utah hyper ventilate over stuff like this is a bit odd.
In NC, while there, I can't remember a single person having an
issue with my faith. The town I lived in was extremely academic, and extremely
liberal. And yet if had about just as many churches on a given street as does
Utah. And what church you attend is commonly spoken about. Dabo was just
doing what many do. At Clemson Dabo leads the team in saying the Lord's
Prayer before each game. I wish in Utah members of the LDS faith
and non-members could learn to co-exist... It's just goofy.
@still thinkingThere's a massive difference between thanking
God for your blessings and claiming that you won because you are more righteous
than your opponent and therefore God made you win.Clearly you can
see the difference, even as a BYU-P fan. I mean, you can see it, can't you?
Right? Please tell me you can.
Dabo's comments will be a blip on the radar. What would have been the
reaction if Bronco had said this when he was coaching at BYU? Or if Sitake said
it now? Utah fans would have gone into an uproar and used it as justification
for why BYU is so terrible. What would have been the reaction if Kyle had said
it? Utah fans would have gone into an uproar and used it as a justification as
why the LDS church is so terrible. Why can religion and references about God be
used everywhere but Utah?
Dabo is a great coach and an all around good guy. So is Nick Saban. But they
never can explain why god would choose one good team with a religious coach over
another good team with a religious coach. Unless god took Clemson and the
They should have Alabama and Clemsen play the National Championship at the
beginning of the season then we can go on and start the regular season.
Vanceone,Cue the over-reacting, snowflake radical conservatives, who
make stuff up about what "the left" thinks and believes...Try truth and sanity for once.
Even a great college coach can be very bad at metaphysics.
