From the beginning of the season, Dabo Swinney's rallying cry was "joy." Each week for opponents, though, was another joyless occasion against a big orange machine that found its high gear midseason. The results shook the foundation of college football. In 2015 and 2016, the Tigers needed to bring their own guts to achieve great things. In Swinney's tenth season, they brought their own sledgehammers. Larry Williams, who has covered Clemson and Swinney since 2004, unearths revealing anecdotes from Dabo's tenure and shares how a season dominated by Alabama hype ended up overwhelmed by a Clemson tide.
Chronicling the Clemson Tigers from the national championship in 1981 to the college football playoff in 2015, the authors provide insight into the Tigers' inner sanctum as only members of the Clemson athletic department can. Whether you're a fan from the Danny Ford era or a new supporter of Dabo Swinney, this book is the perfect read for anyone who bleeds orange and regalia.
