Dabo Swinney says that Florida State (2-6) used the coronavirus as an excuse to not play the Clemson Tigers. Swinney said at his Sunday night news conference that FSU used the virus that has caused a pandemic as an “excuse” not to play Saturday’s game.
“If the standard to play was zero positive tests, then we would have never had a season,” Swinney said. “This game was not canceled because of COVID. COVID was just an excuse to cancel the game.
To me, the Florida State administration forfeited the game. And if they want to play Clemson, in my opinion, they need to come to Clemson or they need to pay for all expenses.”
Among the many people who did not like his comments was Booger McFarland, who took to Twitter to call him out.
“I’m a Dabo fan however this is the most idiotic thing I’ve heard a person in his position say Especially when it was his player that had Covid,” the ESPN analyst tweeted.
