Dabo claimed to be building this program. We'll see if this team is different from the 2008 team that lost to Alabama or if it's going to take someone else another 5 years to rebuild. This is when we need Tahj Boyd to show he's a fifth year senior and the leader we know he is. This is when we need Chad Morris to reboot the offense after getting shutdown by Boston College and Florida State. This is when we need Dabo Swinney to hold the team together.
Unlike 2008, this team proved something on the field pre-hype. Finishing strong, even with an embarrassing loss against a very good FSU team, is a step forward that could result in a BCS bowl. Lose just one more game this season and it's two steps back.
