Wonder what kind of reception he will get.
Alabama will honor its 1992 national championship team this weekend during the team’s game against Arkansas. One of the players on that roster was a walk-on wide receiver and key special teams contributor named Dabo Swinney.
Swinney is, of course, the head coach of the defending national champions. His Clemson Tigers beat his alma mater in last year’s title game. Many have speculated that Dabo could eventually replace Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa.
While that day might not be coming for a while (if it ever does), Swinney is reportedly set to be back in T-town this weekend. Because Clemson plays at Syracuse on Friday night, Swinney will attend the ceremony honoring the 1992 champs at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Despite the fact he beat the Crimson Tide last year, Alabama fans seem to have maintained a liking for Swinney, who coached at his alma mater from 1993-2000.
Most likely, he will be greeted pretty warmly.
