Coach Swinney has always subscribed to the “I got mine, don’t worry about his” school of thought when it comes to player compensation, so him coming out forcefully against players sitting out bowl games to prepare for the NFL draft is no real surprise, but you gotta love the logic to his thought process. Or, to be more precise, the lack of logic:
Dabo Swinney comes out strong on players sitting out of bowls, saying those players might as well skip their entire final season. “You can get hurt in any game and every game is huge…” [Emphasis added.]
Dude, guys like Fournette and McCaffrey are skipping their senior seasons. That’s the whole point. Does that mean you actually approve?
