After Clemson’s shocking upset loss at Syracuse, the Tigers no longer control their own destiny in the ACC or for the College Football Playoff.
A few players decided to throw down in a locker room fight in the aftermath of the game, and head coach Dabo Swinney was not exactly thrilled in his first response to the video.
Via The State:
“It was brought to my attention and obviously it was something we won’t tolerate that,” Swinney said. “We’re not 10 years old. We’re not eight. We’re grown men… It’s not a frat house. It’s not a romper room. And so that’s kind of what I told them. This is a new house. It’s really nice. And that locker room is not a romper room. This ain’t kindergarten. And so yeah, I don’t think you’re going to have any more problems with that.”
Swinney said the video wasn’t taken in the last week despite it being posted last Wednesday. He also downplayed the video a bit as “boys goofing off.”
Here’s the video
If Clemson players were actually fighting and didn’t like each other, it’s doubtful players would be filming it and leaking it elsewhere.
It looks like a way for them to pass the time. No big deal. No harm done. Unless they lose to Georgia Tech, then talking heads will probably find a way to connect the two.
