New Story: Shafer, Swinney and the curse heard round the world

Shafer, Swinney and the curse heard round the world

Cameras caught Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer launching a few profanities in the direction of Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney during a game between the two programs last fall, but Shafer told TigerNet Monday that the two are now friends. They even have the pics to prove it. What does Shafer say about the outburst? How did he apologize? (Elsa Shafer) Full Story »

Well that's just special. SMH

Shaffer was just giving salutations......

New York style! I can see a coach getting fired up in the moment. We were a little touchy during our FSU meltdown as well. He has handled it well at this point.

It was in the heat of the moment...

...and Shafer was embarrassed and apologized for it immediately after the game. Had Dabo done the same, we would have been raving about his fire.

Glad Dabo's man enough to show how to forgive and forget

and then go whup his butt again in Death Valley.

I wonder what he's going to say

When the score is 49-7 at halftime this year

Glad they've moved on ... never understood what he was upset

about in the first place.

A 35-7 halftime score is not a sure thing these days. Any coach who stops trying to score before the half is out of his mind.

I can see Shafer getting upset if it was the 4th quarter. But,it was still in the first half.

Just ask WA St. Their bowl game vs. CO St. is on ESPiNU now.***

Glad to hear that Shafer apologized that night. Handled it

well and good to see that they have become friends instead.

I think both have handled this with class!***

Anybody who thinks this is not a game of extreme emotion is fooling themselves. We all deal with it differently. Dabo has his way, Shafer has his. I think Dabo is great, and I like his way, but I admire Shafer showing his passion, too. The fact that he regrets the outburst shows class to me. The forgiveness by Dabo and Kathlene shows class also. Proud to be a Tiger in so many ways!

Shafer yelled that because he is

an immature 16-year-old and Syracuse will never be on the same level as Clemson or Florida State.

There's something in these hills.

The REAL takeaway is...

Dabo taught Shafer a much deserved lesson. Don't talk so much shizz when you've got nothing to back it up.

I bet Scott will keep a muzzle on those arrogant bastarges this year.

I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.

I'm hoping we give Shafer another opportunity to lose his...

...kewl when in DV this season. Heck...let's hope it happens at the end of the 1st quarter instead of the 2nd.

Let your lady in the picture Shafer.....sheesh! No respect***

Can't worry about making friends during the game.
Its war out there, no friends.

After the game, go get soda and pizza-LOL


Keep the can of whup-a$$ open against SYR this year***
