Will Muschamp confirms Clemson used racial slurs vs. South Carolina
Multiple South Carolina players were fuming after their 52-7 loss to rival Clemson in the regular season finale, but not for the result on the scoreboard.
Many had alleged after the game that Clemson players were using racial slurs directed to members of the Gamecocks while on the field. And according to coach Will Muschamp, it was “obvious.”
“Several players came to me after the game about something that was said during the game,” Muschamp said during Sunday’s press conference. “Obviously there was a racial slur said during the game. I told them, ‘I hate that in 2016 you’re dealing with something like that first of all. Secondly, we’re going to control the things we can control and that’s having class in all situations.’ Let’s leave it at that. I don’t really have anything else to say about the matter.
“I believe my guys.”
Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said the day after the rivalry game that the racial slur talk was “absolutely false.”
