in the second quarter when Clemson went for a touchdown instead of kicking a field goal right before halftime up 35-7. Swinney was asked his reaction in his postgame press conference.

"Were we supposed to take a knee?" Swinney said. "The game is never over until the last second ticks. I won't take it easy in the second quarter. We thought a touchdown would be a better deal right there."

For his part Shafer said that "The thing is, football is an emotional sport, anybody who knows me knows I'm extremely emotional, sometimes over the top. I said a few things out there today that I feel bad about, I really do. In the heat of the moment they were the same things I said on the basketball court or the football field when I was a kid playing, but I'm an adult now and I need to constrain myself a little bit better."
