Dabo Swinney was on fire at his press conference in Orlando for the Russell Athletic Bowl, and it all stemmed from an unfortunate event the night before.
Last night, while driving through Orlando, Swinney and a few members of his staff were involved in a mild car accident where the guy who hit them took off.
Swinney, Marion Hobby, Vic Beasley, Jeff Scott & two others were involved in a car wreck last night in Orlando. Everybody’s OK. Blog later. — Aaron Brenner (@Aaron_Brenner) December 12, 2014
Understandably a bit upset, Swinney says that he had a brief flashback to his younger days growing up in Alabama, where he later went on to play.
“The Alabama came out in me and I wanted to go get them. Luckily, if I was driving I would have.” he explained.
I have no idea how Scott, Elliott, Streeter and Venables are going to follow this all-timer of a Dabo Swinney press conference. — Aaron Brenner (@Aaron_Brenner) December 12, 2014
