After the game Swinney told his team that a guy like Swearinger could not play for him. Actually, Swinney should want guys like Swearinger to play for him. Tough, hardnosed guys that bring it every play of every game are a valuable commodity in college football. Yes, sometimes they cross that line and have to be reeled in, but you still want those kinds of players because, as illustrated in this play, they can be difference makers. Swinney might not want to admit it, but he has some guys like Swearinger on his team now. Remember that throat slash by Martavis Bryant in the N.C. State game? How about the upper cut from Isiah Battle in the fourth quarter? No, Swinney doesn’t condone those actions, but you better believe he is happy as heck to have some guys with a little swagger on his team.
By the way, in case you are wondering, JungleBoi_Swagg is Swearinger’s Twitter handle and nickname.
