Clemson’s Dabo Swinney Talks Georgia Opener, Loss Of Zac Brooks
This week on ‘The Mac Attack,’ Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney called in to talk with the guys about his team’s ACC regular season as well as the Georgia opening game and loss of running back Zac Brooks.
On Clemson taking on Georgia in the season opening game:
“There is a great sense of urgency that comes with that, but…when you go through camp and college football, you don’t get preseason games. It doesn’t matter who you open up with. The guys are excited to play somebody else. There is a small margin of error when you play a team like Georgia right out of the gate.”
On RB Zac Brooks’ being out for season due to injury:
“We do have some depth, but with Zac, as a coach you just love seeing a guy click…develop, and he was at a point in his career where you just know he’s just itchin to tear it up.” On the positive side, Zac Brooks’ has been red shirted so he can come back and play next year.
On his emotional coaching style:
“I’m still as passionate about preparing and impacting young people, and organizing and winning more than ever.”
Tune into the Clemson/Georgia game in Athens, GA on Saturday, August 30, 5:30 PM on ESPN.
