Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney is still having trouble getting over this past weekend’s game postponement against Florida State.
The game was postponed due to a COVID-19 scare which led to Swinney ripping the Seminoles program.
Swinney said that FSU was using COVID-19 as an excuse which led to plenty of backlash.
While Swinney has seen the backlash, he is not backing down and he is continuing to take shots at the Seminoles.
“I’m not very worried about what they say down in Tallahassee,” Swinney said, via ESPN’s David Hale. “I’ve been here 18 years. They’ve had three coaches in four years. I’m not worried about advice from down in Tallahassee.”
Ouch. Dabo really is upset over the entire debacle.
As for Florida State and head coach Mike Norvell, his side has been handling everything with nothing but class.
Dabo: “I’m not very worried about what they say down in Tallahassee. I’ve been here 18 years. They’ve had 3 coaches in 4 years. I’m not worried about advice from down in Tallahassee."

“… I appreciate the protocols that have been put in place by FSU and the ACC to ensure everyone’s health while allowing us to play this season,” Norvell said in the statement. “It’s unfortunate that we will not have the opportunity to compete today, but we hope to be able to play Clemson in December. I am thankful for the support and coordination between our administration, Clemson and the ACC office. Our team will now turn our focus to hosting Virginia next week.”
Florida State will reportedly work with the ACC in an effort to reschedule the game.
