Dabo Swinney shared his thoughts on Clemsons 52-10 victory over Charlotte and upcoming game at North Carolina via teleconference, Sunday. Swinney made it clear he has tremendous respect for Tar Heels head coach Mack Brown and looks forward to competing against “one of the best to ever do it.” Swinney also detailed the way Brown influenced him early in his head coaching tenure and the relationship they’ve enjoyed since. Additionally, Swinney praised North Carolinas freshman quarterback, Sam Howell, labeling him a “natural leader with a toughness you like to see.”
