The NCAA announced on Monday that it would relocate seven championship events from North Carolina because of a controversial transgender bathroom law to other states to an "inclusive atmosphere for all college athletes, coaches, administrators, and fans."
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney talked to the media on Tuesday for his weekly press conference previewing South Carolina State and answered a question about Monday's decision to pull major championships from North Carolina.
"Tim [Bourret] just told me about that last night during my radio show, so I haven't read anything about it other than what he said, but I don't have any thoughts other than I hope we are in the championship," Swinney said. "We'll go to Pluto and play or wherever. It doesn't matter. Just tell us where it is at and we will play. It's really all that matters. Just tell us where to show up. We'll show up. Hopefully, everyone can go to the bathroom."
ACC commish John Swofford had the following comments on Monday afternoon.
“HB2 was previously scheduled to be thoroughly discussed at this week’s ACC Council of Presidents meeting, so it would be premature to make any decisions or announcements regarding ACC Championships until our membership is able to discuss. The league’s longstanding commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion will continue to be a central theme to our discussions," Swofford said.
