Being a Clemson fan and from the upstate of SC I thought our chances were good going in last night but I didn't see that big of a victory coming. I think America saw what those of us in S.C have been seeing for months. Lawrence, and Clemson, are the real deal. What you see on TV is what you get too... Dabo is a class act and he recruits kids who are class acts. All of these players weren't superstars either. Hunter Renfrow was a 5 foot 10 inch tall 150lb high school kid when he walked on at Clemson. The placekicker Greg Huegel is an All American now but most people have forgotten he was a walk-on who almost didn't even try out for the team. He got his job when their highly recruited kicker got dismissed from the team. He beat out Alex Spence, who was also a decorated kicker coming out of high school. He kept the job all four years, minus the games last year he missed because of his knee injury. There was a great story in the media here last week about the "Renfrow Way"- kids are turning down full rides to walk on at Clemson. They're doing it because they want to play for Dabo and know that the program genuinely rewards hard work and dedication.
