Dabo Swinney: “I Don’t Know” If Georgia Faked Injuries
No, you can’t “tweet that …”
Usually outspoken Clemson University head football coach Dabo Swinney took the diplomatic route when asked by reporters Sunday whether he believed Georgia Bulldogs’ defensive players faked injuries in an effort to slow down the Tigers’ high-octane offense.
“You know, I don’t know,” Swinney said.
Obviously it didn’t work, as Clemson defeated the Bulldogs 38-35 in a thriller at Death Valley.
“Someone sent that clip to me today,” Swinney said, referring to a video of a Bulldog player appearing to take a dive. “I’ll let others speak on that. I’m not worried about that. I don’t try to get into second-guessing that stuff. You are getting into ethical behavior there. If you really aren’t injured and you have guys go down, that gets into the ethics of the game.”
