Tigers coach Dabo Swinney loses it when asked about 'Clemsoning'

BY foxsports • October 10, 2015

On Saturday, Clemson showed no signs of letting its guard down against a struggling Georgia Tech team as the No. 6 Tigers blasted the Yellow Jackets 43-24.

The victory was the fifth straight for Clemson (5-0, 2-0 ACC), who just last week topped then No. 6-ranked Notre Dame 24-22.

Afterward, Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney was asked about if his team had put aside "Clemsoning" for good. “Clemsoning” is the snarky buzzword that is used when the Tigers blow a big game.

Needless to say, Swinney was not happy about it and let the media know.

"I think it's ridiculous that you're even asking me that question," Swinney said in a video from Orangeandwhite.com. "That you even say the word. I mean, I'm serious. I'm sick of it."

“I can’t believe I have to come into here with a 5-0 football team that just had a great win and have to talk about ‘Clemsoning,’” Swinney said in the video. “It shouldn’t be in the conversation.”
