Asked that very question to a random Clem fan right before the ACCCG last year.

25-16 overall record
1-3 in bowl games, including last season's Orange Bowl debacle
1-3 versus rival South Carolina, including 3 straight losses
On the positive side, he's won 2 Atlantic division titles and 1 ACC championship, and has put together a couple top 15 recruiting classes.
Anyone have a pulse on how Clemson fans feel about him, both as a coach and an overly emotional spaz?
Clem fan: ....< long pause > ..... Yea I'm happy, he's been good for the program.
Me: Yea, but you really had to think about it there.
Clem fan: I'd rather have Beamer.
Me: Allow me to buy the next round.
