discussed at his post game press conference some of the CBS analysts comments that provided extra motivation leading up to Clemson's 24-22 win over Notre Dame on Saturday night.

"I don't know who Aaron Taylor is, but I guess he is analyst or commentator," Swinney said. "The comment was we were not going to be ready. Clemson wouldn't be ready, and our crowd was going to be lugubrious when the game was over. I don't know how to spell that. I'm hooked on phonics. I just sound it out. Lugubrious. But I did look it up and lugubrious means to look sad and disappointed. So I want to wish Notre Dame and their lugubrious crowd safe travels back to South Bend. And we will show up in 2020. We look forward to that trip. So I appreciate the education that we got this week - the vocab lesson. The first thing our players said to me when they came to the locker room was 'man that leprechaun was a little lugubrious looking'."

Taylor works for the CBS Sports Network and serves as a game and studio analyst. Taylor was drafted out of Notre Dame, and he won the Lombardi Award and was a unanimous first-team All-America selection in 1993 as an offensive tackle.
