Dabo Swinney on allegations Clemson players used racial slurs: 'Absolutely false'
South Carolina players accused Clemson players of using racial slurs Saturday
Following Clemson's 56-7 win over South Carolina on Saturday, there were plenty of Gamecocks players who felt they had been disrespected by their in-state rivals. Some of the disrespect was your typical rival fare, as South Carolina players thought Clemson was doing a bit too much celebrating.
Then there were more serious allegations that Clemson players hurled racial slurs at South Carolina players, accusations that Clemson's Dabo Swinney says are "absolutely false."
"I was made aware of that. Obviously everyone is talking about it. That's a shame," Swinney said when asked about the allegations Sunday. "Absolutely, I asked my guys about that. To a man, absolutely false. I believe my guys. I know the character of our team and that's really all there is to say about it."
Receiver Terry Googer also tweeted about it following the game.
