Clemson Is Classing Up The Championship Game




We’ve already brought our readers the story of the tiger paw on the lawn of the federal court house, but Clemson University continues to class up the national championship game.

The latest?

Henry “Tripp” Swinney – brother of Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney – was arrested by Bay County (Florida) sheriff’s deputies this week in connection with aggravated stalking charges.

Specifically, he’s accused of sending malicious text messages to his estranged wife – along with nude pictures of the woman.

Here’s his mug shot …

Nice …

Tripp Swinney is best known for bestowing upon his brother the now-famous nickname “Dabo” – which is short for “Dat Boy” (a.k.a. what he called Swinney as a toddler).

In fact Dabo (whose real name is William Christopher) told reporters this week he didn’t even know what his real name was until he was in the third grade.

Nice …

Seriously … you can’t get human interest stuff like this from any other school, can you?

The top-ranked Tigers (14-0, 8-0 ACC) face No. 2 Alabama (13-1, 7-1 SEC) in the 2015 title game, which will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on January 11.  Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. EST, with ESPN televising the game nationally.  The Crimson Tide – winners of the 2009, 2011 and 2012 national championships – are seven point favorites.
