and when you think about it, this guy, 2008, he was the interim head coach. and after a couple rough spots to start off with, he overhauled his coaching staff, bringing in chad morris, with a major step, it ging that offense going, bringing in brent, later to take over the defense and now you've got tony elliott and jeff scott as cooffensive coordinator, so every staff decision that dabo has been a major improvement. pretty good effort at recruiting. so waiting on the team to arrive. off the plane. and again, i can look around, this really is like media row, i'm going to count, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, about 100 cameras are here. we're focussing on the plane. there's about 100 tv cameras
clemson and alabama as they are making their first steps on to arizona soil. so we're going to -- i think the doors are about to open. and let's see who -- my bet is on dabo, i would assume it would be dabo, he's let's see what happens as the doors are open andho is stepping off? let's see. it looks like dabo, i see an orange tie. there he is, dabo and his wife. there they are. the clemson football head couple, if you will, embarking. i see jeff scott, looks like. and we have a high school band here, that's breaking into the tiger rag, right now. and of course, if you're wondering, alabama's alma mater, yeah, alabama, that will be played when r whenever alabama arrives, in the next 20, 25 minutes or so.
