The tweet from Clemson’s football account lays out exactly how the conversation by staffers to prank Dabo Swinney likely played out.

“Coach Swinney will have fun with this, right?”

“It’s coach Swinney.”

“Say no more.”

That, and the video rolling before the team and coaches roll into the team meeting room, set the scene. Then, as Dabo is addressing his guys, the lights go off…and when he turns around he gets quite the surprise.

Well played fellas.
