Dabo Swinney becomes easy target for fans, media after bold Cheez-It Bowl outfit
Dabo Swinney is a proud Clemson coach, so when given the opportunity to dress in a full-on orange jogging suit as part of the promotional efforts for the Cheez-It Bowl, Swinney jumped at the chance.
But the bold head-to-toe outfit drew plenty of reaction from college football fans and media, as strong reactions poured in about the orange.
Clemson faces Iowa State in the bowl as both teams are trying to salvage disappointing seasons. The Cyclones are 7-5, but won’t have record-setting running back Breece Hall, who is planning to attend the game but won’t play as he prepares for the NFL Draft.
Clemson opened the season at No. 3, but saw its six-year streak of reaching the College Football Playoff end.
Here’s a sampling of some of the reaction:

Based on these outfits, Clemson’s Dabo Swinney and Iowa State’s Matt Campbell will be the next millionaires to go into space… https://t.co/oUkTin86EW

Dabo… If you’re going “ALL IN” on the outfit, you’ve got the resources to at least match your kicks.

Matt Campbell’s expression is exactly what mine would be if confronted with Orange Dabo and forced to take a photograph with him https://t.co/SykIqXPcOz
