GREENSBORO, N.C. -- ACC Commissioner John Swofford issued the following statement today:

"The events that occurred during Saturday's football game between
South Carolina and Clemson have no place in college football. Those
events, which marred an otherwise quality game between two great
rivals, are inexcusable, and should not be acceptable to anyone who
cares about and loves the college game.

Discussions between this office and Clemson Director of Athletics
Terry Don Phillips, as well as with SEC Commissioner Mike Slive, have
taken place last night and this morning as part of a thorough review
of the unfortunate events that transpired. We will complete this
review as soon as possible."
