    I can't decide if this is less stupid or more stupid than Texas A&M and the Seahawks getting in a legal battle over the 12th man. Probably more, but I'm biased because every day I encounter multiple people who unironically refer to themselves as "twelves".

    Today in Fuck Dabo Swinney, Dabo punishes a player for being as mercenary as...Dabo Swinney:
    Which is why it was so shocking last week when Dabo Swinney, head coach of defending college football champion Clemson, announced that Kelly Bryant — who started four games for the Tigers last year, including a key 28-26 road victory over Texas A&M in which he threw for a touchdown and ran for another — would not be receiving a championship ring. The reason: After losing the starting job to freshman phenom Trevor Lawrence, Bryant — who had graduated from college and therefore could sit out the rest of the season and have one more year of eligibility in 2019 for another team — left the team and transferred to Missouri.

    […]

    When Swinney won the national championship game in January, he was awarded more than $2 million in bonuses for the 2019 season in addition to the $6.8 million salary he’d already earned — a salary that jumped considerably when he signed a ten-year, $92 million contract after the season. That is a fortune he has made on the backs of his unpaid players. To be an FBS college football coach is to reap the harvest of an unjust system, but Swinney has gone beyond merely being complicit in this system. Instead, he has chosen to forcefully advocate for it. He has said he will quit college football entirely if players get paid, saying that, “as far as paying players, professionalizing college athletics, that’s where you lose me. I’ll go do something else, because there’s enough entitlement in this world as it is.” (He brazenly reiterated this stance after signing that new contract.) He has fought against players receiving stipends in addition to their scholarships. When Northwestern football players attempted to unionize a few years ago, he was one of the loudest voices in opposition.

    Fuck Dabo Swinney, and as always, fuck the motherfucking NCAA.

    To be fair, every time Dabo opens his mouth he makes it inescapably clear that he is, at his core, a massive shithead.

    Does anyone actually like Clemson/Dabo, or do they just hate them less than Bama/Saban winning for the eleventyseventh time in a row?

  • Captain InertiaCaptain Inertia Registered User regular
    Dabo didn’t turn mediocre Clemson into an immediate, historic powerhouse pretty much immediately without being a gigantic shithead

    He’s obviously an extremely talented college football coach, which requires cheating and the most oppressive authoritarianism

  • Captain InertiaCaptain Inertia Registered User regular
    And despite being a lifelong fan of The, I probably still “hate” them more than Baba/Clemson

    I will always hate Alabama more, though it is purely because of Saban. The second he retires.... actually I'll probably stop giving a shit about Alabama at all, except during the Iron Bowl.

    The article makes a solid argument that Swinney is worse than Saban. Also, the comments are just..."did you know Dabo donates to charity?" So? Does it somehow make it okay that he's making millions on the backs of (heavily minority) players who see none of the revenue their labor is generating because he donates a portion?

    My feeling is that Saban exploits an evil system for personal profit. Dabo believes that system is morally correct.

    Yeah, the whole “Saban would struggle if he had to pay the players” argument kinda ignores that Alabama already (allegedly allegedly allegedly) throws a ton of money out there in recruiting, and that bringing that all to the surface wouldn’t be that big of a deal.

    Saban has made a number of arguments that players should get paid.

    He’s like, one of two SEC coaches with that opinion.

    Saban's issue is less the "getting paid" part, and more everything that comes with it - he'd love a system where the players get paid and he retains control, but that's not what will happen. Players won't just be getting paid - they will be able to get contracts that give them more control over their lives. And it's that which will drive Saban nuts.

    The idea of a multi millionaire who makes their money entirely off the talent of dangerous unpaid labor taking about those same unpaid laborers being "entitled" is just too on the nose America in 2019 man.

    I think at this point treating use of the word "entitled" with any amount of good faith is a terrible idea.

    Someone should tell Soybean Wind and The... that the season hasn't even started yet, it's too damn early to start jockeying for the position of Biggest Asshole in College Football for 2019.

    And we have a new contender - coach making nearly $1M demands players who receive no pay chip into the college athletics fund:
    At a post-workout press conference earlier this week, Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns coach Billy Napier announced a rather odd initiative for the members of his football team. Napier said that, starting this year, all scholarship members of the team will be required to donate a minimum of $50 to the Ragin’ Cajun Athletic Foundation.

    That seems like a punitive rule to enforce on a group of unpaid college football players, though Napier clarified that, “it’s all about gratitude,” which is a hell of a tack for a coach who was paid $850,000 last year to take with a group of players whose labor is exploited for free. He unfortunately continued:
    “That’s probably a little bit unheard of and a little bit unique, but I think this is a place where that would be appreciated,” Napier said of the initiative. “I think it’s part of the type of program that we want to have. We want our players to be educated and understand the benefits that come with being a student-athlete and that is not something that should be taken lightly — the effort and time and investment that the people that support athletes at UL have put in into this program.”

    Fuck you, Napier.
