I was curious to what people thought about this:
If Dabo had come to Tech back in 2008 (or whenever he did - and let's assume Beamer retired then as well and wasn't "pushed" out or anything like that), do you think Tech would be where Clemson is today?
Dabo, even in the early years at Clemson, was still reeling in 4 and 5 star recruits. I'd have to think that with an established DC in Foster (presumably Foster would've been retained) and Dabo pulling in the great recruits that he has that we'd be a monster by now.
Counter point: We didn't (and still don't) have the resources that Clemson does. To some extent even back then Clemson sells itself, and while Tech does that to some extent, we haven't been able to compete in that regard.
I'm sure there are a lot more factors for pros and cons, but I figured this is a start.
