Dabo Swinney furious with refs, continues shouting at them in tunnel
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney made it known to the refs that he was robbed right before halftime.
The Tigers were forced to burn their last timeout after many seconds bled off the clock despite a first-down completion. Clemson would’ve been able to run an additional play if the clock was stopped more promptly.
Instead, Clemson kicked a 44-yard field goal, which was blocked by D.J. Pettway and was no good.
Swinney was irate with the refs on the field before halftime, then continued his beef with them on the way to the locker room, according to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.
