CLEMSON, S.C. — Dabo Swinney shared a consistent message early on during the 2019 season, and really throughout his time as the head coach at Clemson, whenever he was asked about things such as polls or outside noise.

“I don’t even think about it,” Swinney said after the Tigers received some criticism and dropped from No. 1 to No. 2 in the AP Poll following a 21-20 victory at North Carolina last month. “We always say, ‘Don’t let anybody walk between your ears with their dirty feet.’”

During his time as a high school coach, Scott would get creative when searching for ways to motivate his players. “I’d get on Microsoft Word and make up my own article or something,” Scott said.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney has a bone to pick with all those unethical reporters out there who don’ t cover his team exactly the way he wants Swinney , however, became visibly agitated when he was questioned about the incident, and proceeded to issue what appears to be a semi-prepared

In his comments Tuesday, the head coach said athletes hoping to take a stand on an issue should do so during news conferences, not when He was critical of Swinney ’s comments , in particular, saying they seemed to indicate the coach cares more about winning games than helping his players grow as

Yet as the Tigers have continued to slip, dropping in at least one of the polls for a fourth consecutive game this past week, Swinney has gone from dismissive to seeming annoyed.

Clemson, the preseason No. 1 team in both the AP poll and Coaches poll, is now ranked No. 4 in the AP poll and No. 3 in the Coaches poll, despite the Tigers being 8-0 and winners of 23 consecutive games.

Swinney had a little fun with the Tigers’ slide following a 45-10 win at Louisville on Oct. 19.

“I think after seven games we were winning by an average of 28.7 points per game (in 2018) and this year after seven we’re winning by an average of 28 points a game,” Swinney said. “So that .7 is elusive and we’re chasing that. That’s probably the greatest .7 out there. But we’ll keep working.”

The increase is the largest in four years.► Ten coaches are making north of $6 million. Clemson's Dabo Swinney leads the way with $9.32 million in total compensation for 2019-20.► For the first time, there is a league in which all of the coaches are making at least $3 million. It's the 14-school Southeastern Conference, in which the average total pay is $4.95 million.(The SEC was close to eclipsing that mark in 2015, when all 13 of its public-school coaches were making at least $3.

His Voice Is So Emotional That Even Simon Started To Cry!

Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney undoubtedly barked that very phrase at his players during that unseasonably chilly Florida night President Trump said as much in his remarks as he introduced the winning team and coaching staff during their traditional Next to speak was Coach Swinney himself.

Swinney seems particularly unhappy with the criticism star quarterback Trevor Lawrence has received.

The sophomore entered the season as the Heisman favorite but is no longer in the conversation as he leads the ACC in interceptions with eight. But Swinney believes Lawrence is being judged unfairly by some in the media.

“Trevor’s been amazing,” Swinney said. “I know everybody just focuses on anytime he has a bad play, but he’s had a lot of great plays. That’s a major reason why we’re 8-0.”

ESPN analyst Emmanual Acho is one of several on-air talents to criticize Lawrence’s play this season. Acho claimed after Lawrence threw two picks in the first quarter against Louisville that he knew the recipe to beat Lawrence.

“The secret is out to beating Clemson, just rush three people,” Acho claimed. “Trevor Lawrence has got to get it together.”

But even with Lawrence’s turnovers he ranks second in the ACC in passer rating at 157.4, and Lawrence is also second in the ACC in touchdown passes with 17.

But Swinney held firm, and his university backed him . Swinney ’ s statement was a model of polite conviction. First, he outlined the three simple rules that every Dabo Swinney is a man of conviction, and his conviction commands respect. The Tide has rolled far enough. Tonight is Clemson’s night.

It definitely doesn ' t prove that he thinks you're his one and only and that you're going to be walking down the aisle anytime soon or even staying together much longer. Sure, the truth hurts, but wouldn't it hurt so much more if you kept dating this guy while knowing how he actually feels? Yeah, exactly.

He had his best game of the year this past weekend against Boston College, completing 16 of 19 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns. Lawrence did not have a turnover in the game.

“Trevor throws a couple of picks and that’s the story and it’s a shame, because the story really should be what these guys have done,” Swinney said. “We’re the only team with seven Power 5 wins out there and have really played a good season to this point.”

Lawrence is the first Clemson quarterback to toss at least three touchdown passes in three consecutive games since 2013 when Tajh Boyd accomplished the feat, a stat that Swinney brought up unprompted during his Sunday night teleconference.

“Deshaun (Watson) never did that,” he said.

But Swinney wasn’t done reeling off stats. He arrived for his teleconference ready to fire off a number of marks the Tigers offense has reached as of late.

Clemson reached the 600-yard mark for the third time in the same season against Boston College, tying a school record; the Tigers reached 550 yards of offense in three straight games for the first time since 2013 and scored 45 plus points in three consecutive games for the first time since 2012.

A random guy on Reddit just did a better job reviewing AirPods Pro than most tech bloggers

  A random guy on Reddit just did a better job reviewing AirPods Pro than most tech bloggers I was a big fan of Apple's AirPods when they first launched, but I have to say grew tired of them fairly quickly. The concept is terrific, of course, and they were certainly among the best true wireless earbuds on the market when they first hit store shelves. But the smooth plastic tips don't isolate sound so all the bass leaks out of your ears. That's fine if you're a runner or if you commute in a city and need to hear what's going on aroundThe new AirPods Pro earphones look great, but I personally didn’t even bother to try them at first. Why not? Well, I poked around a few reviews out there and I really didn’t find anything worthwhile.

Coach Dabo Swinney doesn ’ t think black football players ought to use their influence to protest racial injustice. He also thinks we don’t really have a Dabo did that, too. But the most egregious sin was when Swinney implied that people ought to be more Christian and stop protesting the American flag

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney ripped Colin Cowherd for calling his team a "fraud" back in November after Back in November, Colin Cowherd went on his Fox Sports radio show and said that he didn’ t think there was any They’re the New York Giants of college football. I don’ t care what their record is.

“For an offense that’s supposedly struggled all year I think these guys have done pretty good,” Swinney said.

In reality, no one has said Clemson’s offense has struggled all year, and most national outlets have had the Tigers projected to reach the College Football Playoff for a fifth consecutive year.

Even Clemson co-offensive coordinators Jeff Scott and Tony Elliott, as well as Lawrence, said earlier in the year that the Tigers were making too many mistakes and left too many points on the board.

Clemson entered the 2019 season with most of the stars that put up 44 points on Alabama in the national title game back, and most expected the Tigers to pick up where the left off. Instead, Clemson faced a little more adversity than most expected on its way to an 8-0 start.

Still, the Tigers are 8-0 and No. 4 nationally in total offense, averaging 526 yards per game.

“The team last year was the best ever, and if you just look at that team versus this team there’s not much difference,” Swinney said. “In fact, we’re ahead in a lot of areas. And could be much further ahead if we left some of these guys in there to play some of these fourth quarters where we’ve had control of the games.”

Swinney brought up Clemson’s success this season unprompted on several occasions during his Sunday teleconference, and you can bet he’s bringing up whatever negative attention he can find to his team as well.

As much as Swinney proclaims that he doesn’t care about negative attention or the polls, he’s clearly bothered by it and is using it to motivate his team.

“Coach Swinney can find a way, (even) when you’re the No. 1 team, to have fun and keep that edge,” Scott said. “And it’s important.”

Yet coach Dabo Swinney had said the Tigers (10-0, 7-0, No. 3 Coaches, No. 4 AP, No. 5 CFP) were in a ''good spot'' and needed to focus instead on finishing strong.
