Swinney discusses less practice time than Alabama


by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney was on ESPN's Mike & Mike on Tuesday morning and commented on the situation that the Tigers will have less practice time than Alabama in preparation for the title game on Jan. 11.

"This ain't rocket science," Swinney said. We're either good enough or not."

The (14-0) Tigers will have to adhere to the 20-hour weekly NCAA rule while Alabama can have unlimited practices and meetings leading up to the title game because Clemson's spring semester starts on Wednesday while Alabama's semester doesn't start until after the championship game.
