Dabo Swinney trademarks phrase B.Y.O.G.

by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney answered questions from the local media during his Tuesday press conference and said that his agent had trademarked Swinney's famous term B.Y.O.G.

"It was just a message to the team (BYOG)," Swinney said.

Swinney joked that "I had a lot of good things in 2010 and nobody listened. Didn't make it out of the room."

B.Y.O.G. - Bring Your Own Guts refers to Dabo Swinney's post game interview against Notre Dame where he told his team to Bring Your Own Guts.

“What I told them tonight is that we give you scholarships," Swinney said in the post game interview. "We give you stipends. We give you meals, and a place to live and nice uniforms. I can’t give you guts, and I can’t give you heart. Tonight was B.Y.O. G. – Bring Your Own Guts. They brought some guts and some heart and they never quit until the last play. Thank you to the good Lord and my dad for being with me tonight."
