Aiken, SC--What a few years it's been for Clemson football. They have ascended the mountain and are now king of the college football world. A dominating win over Alabama. Now, the quest starts again. Tonight, the man in charge, Dabo Swinney coming to the area.
It was the annual Prowl and Growl with Sweeney front and center. Hundreds were on hand to have their picture taken with him and basketball coach Brad Brownell.. Even the national trophy that they brought along to show off. Can't blame them. Spring ball is in the past and while the Tigers lost a lot to graduation, Swinney was happy with the direction this new team is headed.
"A lot of enthuseasium, there was eagerness for guys to learn so you know, at the end of the day, one of the other take aways from spring I came out of it feeling good about the guys there to replace guys who are leaving. We got a long way to go but I think we have the right stuff there" said Dabo Swinney
That right stuff will have to show up on the defensive side of the ball. That's where the graduation and guys leaving early was most prevalent.
