Swinney on Clemson's future Playoff rankings

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney held his weekly press conference on Tuesday to preview the Miami game and answered a question about the importance of the playoff rankings being released soon.

"It’s irrelevant right now. It doesn’t matter. We have to go play the games," Swinney responded. "If we
take care of our business, all that stuff takes care of itself. It’s not even worth the conversation at this point."

However, Swinney did say that the Notre Dame win should look impressive on his team's resume.

"We’ve got a pretty good resume. We’re the only team in the top-12 that’s beaten a team (Notre Dame) in the top-12 at this stage. But what does that mean? This time next week it could be totally different, and it will be."

Swinney knows that there is so much unpredictability in college sports in general.

"Every week is a season of it’s own," Swinney said. "How many people predict a (basketball) bracket right every year? It’s hard. It looks good on paper but you have to go play. It’s fun to talk about but every week in college football is a playoff game. The picture changes each week."

The Clemson football team has just hit the midpoint of the season (6 games) and there are many games left to determine his team's ultimate success or failure.

"We just need to take care of Clemson then maybe it’s worth a conversation in November," Swinney said. "Sitting here at 6-0, it’s just like halftime. You have to go play the second half. This time last year I don’t even know if Ohio State was in the conversation of the final four and they won the National Championship. So none of that stuff matters."
