Dabo Swinney Got “Four-Bombed”

When he’s not receiving traffic tickets, Clemson University head football coach Dabo “Dat Boy” Swinney is a likable guy. He loves the fans – especially the children – and is always willing to pose for pictures.

Two young students recently took advantage of his affable “awww shucksness” when they posed for the following picture with the Clemson coach.

Wait … why is each boy holding up four fingers?

Well, if you’re a University of South Carolina fan you already know the answer to that question … the four fingers symbolize the Gamecocks’ four consecutive victories over Swinney’s Tigers.

“Two of my students met Dat Boy today, acted like they were his friend and punked him!” a proud teacher said of his pupils. “Priceless!”

Yup … that’s a “four-bomb” people.

“What makes it sweeter is that idiot Dabo is clueless,” our source for the photo told us. “Just like normal.”

Awwwww … poor Dabo. Maybe S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley will let him take a free plane ride to feel better … or, maybe not.

Anyway, for the latest status check on both Carolina and Clemson football, click here. Oh, and if you successfully “four-bomb” Swinney or any other member of the Clemson family, send it to us here.

I can pass an opinion on smoking pot as far as getting high and its effects because I have never tried it. I smoke cigarettes for years and I have been drunk and I know they were not good for me. No doubt inhaling pot affects your lungs and it does something to you or else you would not like it.I do not care what you do in the confines of your own area but it does not belong in public or behind the wheel of a car.

Hilarious to see them embrace this “four” thing with such vigor now that they’ve tasted success for the first since… ever. Meanwhile, Clemson fans celebrate “three”… as in three national championships, compared to scar’s three Outback Bowl wins.

Gee, I don’t know, could it possibly have to do with the fact that the last time Clemson four-peated was so long ago that nobody gave a rat’sass about social media or even knew what it was? GBB spread “Fear the Thumb” in case you hadn’t noticed. Clemson may have never had a campaign about it, but hearing how much they couldn’t wait to “own” us again the next year was just as insufferable.
Side note, in what sad fantasy world does Clemson have 3 national titles? They’re lucky to have the ONE the NCAA let them keep after they got busted.

Auburn actually coined the term “fear the thumb”, sorry it’s not original. Nice try though. Also, last time Clemson went 4-0 was in 2006 in the 1st and 35 game. That’s 6 seasons ago. Not sure how social media is tied in here, but in 2006 facebook was 3 years old then. You also had to have a .edu email address which probably excludes most all of the Carolina fan base.
USC fans show their butt much more than Clemson fans did during their century of dominance, the problem is most of you guys are so thick skulled that when the worm turns, you’ll call us “classless” when we start winning and pointing out that we are winning. And I put that in quotes because anyone who says “class” about cfb already is discredited in my book.

ColaCock13 May 3, 2013 at 9:06 pm

GBB = Gamecock Born&Bred, a popular USC fan community. Our usage of “fear the thumb” came from an image macro that they created that is now used on Gamecock merchandise statewide. It only grew b/c the general public uses Facebook now, as opposed to the few college students who used it in 05, the last of the Whitehurst series (seven seasons ago). What I’m saying is that since no adults were on FB & the only other widely used social network was primarily inhabited by sext-crazed highschoolers, Clemson didn’t have such a readily available medium to reference, so cliché taunts were all they could muster. But all this doesn’t matter. Spurrier shot down the streak in 06.

All South Carolina Gamecock fans are not “trailer trash” or any other derogatory reference used by Clemson posters to this article. Actually neither are all Clemson fans. History is tradition and Clemson has a rich tradition. But only a fool fails to recognize the present as the most relevant history of the future. That being said, USC has earned the right to claim the current status of superiority when comparing USC/CLEMSON football programs. The weak criticism offered by those partial to Clemson posting comments is not shared by the Clemson faithful that I know. They are wise enough to recognize when their football program is falling short in head to head competition with USC.

I despised the way Sweeney acted in his speeding case and that takes away from his down home style but I believe he is a good man that needs a little more experience in the public relations field. I hope Carolina and Clemson both are undefeated when they play.

If Clemson can knock off Georgia, SC, Florida State, GA Tech, and VA Tech in a Single season then they deserve to play for the National Championship, but I don’t see that happening. Their defense simply isn’t good enough, and their offense is a lackluster one, just ask LSU, SC, and FSU

Clemson fans have a point. It took a lot of old money for Danny Ford and IPTAY to buy the players who won that dusty old national championship over 30 years ago.

We’re on probation and our football program is getting better. When the NCAA cut off the old money back in 1990 and put the Taters on probation they couldn’t compete.

BTW speaking of rates how much is Sammy selling an ounce for these days.

Derek Watson says I should have listened to Bowden when he said don’t worry come play for us. If you break the law we’ll fix it for ya. Heck if you want to beat the snot out of your girlfriend and throw her down a flight of concrete stairs no problem.

tom williams May 3, 2013 at 5:44 pm

If Tommy Bowden recruited Watson, then he did so at Tulane as Bowden was not the FB coach at Clemson during that time frame

bacardi630 May 4, 2013 at 11:46 am

Is that a fact? Bowden was hired in Dec 1998. Watson signed his LOI in Feb 2009. Watson was also available when he was kicked off the Gamecocks team. Try to keep up.

tom williams May 4, 2013 at 12:25 pm

I do apologize that I incorrectly spelled his first name. DEREK Watson was an undrafted free agent of the NE Patriots in 2003. So USC signed him to a LOI in 2009? No wonder you are on probation.

bacardi630 May 4, 2013 at 7:58 pm

There …………..fixed it for ya

tom williams May 4, 2013 at 11:17 pm

Derek Watson was actively recruited by Tommy West. Clemson (West) backed off Watson when it was discovered that he had been caught with a hand gun at his school (Palmetto). The school and Williamston hushed it up due to his “celebrity” status. Bowden arrived in Dec 1998. The recruiting for the national signing day in Feb 1999 was mostly set and for Clemson it did not include Watson. Holtz thought he could “save” Watson from himself and signed him. After he screwed up at USC he had very few options other than SC State.

bacardi630 May 5, 2013 at 10:41 am

West, Bowden who g a s. Oh otay. Since you want to get technical Watson should have listened to Clemson. There fixed it for ya.

BTW…………….you’re gonna have one heck of a stretch convincing many people that a school with Toke and Smoke University’s rogue reputation backed off a highly rated 5 star recruit in their own backyard because they got caught with a handgun at school.

I mean, seriously dude that’s laughable.

Watson could have gone anywhere in the country including Clemson. Before Holtz was hired he had committed to Tenn and was all set to go there.

tom williams May 5, 2013 at 12:19 pm

Sorry if you can’t handle facts. You don’t seem to comprehend that what you hear from your buddies at 5 Points bars may not be all that factual.

GetReal May 8, 2013 at 12:09 pm

It must be nice to be able to throw rocks since your program has NEVER had a player arrested for drugs or a multitude of other crimes. I think Clemson would be happy to compare arrest records with SC. Sammy has more class in his little finger than SC`s entire starting team including your coach. Why do you think Lattimore is hailed as such a hero? Because he is an oddity in the history of SC’s program.

I am glad they are happy with beating clemson 4 years in a row. Clemson has beat the gamecocks 4 times in a row 7 times, not to mention once 7 years in a row. The past or not this is only the second time the gamecocks have done this. The gamecocks are enjoying their time on top in the state. Enjoy it and act with class.

Clemson holds a 65-41-4 lead in the series, which dates back to 1896. Do you think that is this kid’s life time he will ever see USCe with a winning record over Clemson? Nah…this is probably the proudest moment this kid will ever experience as a USCe fan…Dad is just a loser.
