Are you friends with Robert Nkimdeche? Would you like to go to Clemson too?
We have a single thought on everyone getting pissy because a super recruit is helping his buddy land a scholarship: so what? Dabo Swinney wanted this kid bad enough he was willing to offer his friends. Said kid saw it's a negotiation that gets his friends what they want, and he continued to bargain for more friends to see how far he could take it. Dabo, after getting lit up by Holgo the Barbarian, was more than willing to sell off a few spots for a difference maker on the DL (and considering our scholly situation, we had plenty of room for a similar deal). College football is business, and both sides are in public negotiations. Why this is public is a Michael Carvell wet dream, but the actions on both sides are simply businessmen in a negotiation. Pissy, morally outraged reporters can cry a river, but this is the world we live in, and have for a while now.
