The Bruise Brothers: Swinney Previews Georgia Tech

October 13, 2020

Dabo Swinney just wrapped up his time at the podium in Clemson. Here are a few quick notes from Tiger Town. You can also watch the full session with the media above.

On Baylon Spector:

“If you have the work ethic, then talent gets them here, but their skill develops them. Baylon is the epitome of that.” — Says Spector and James Skalski’s play is a “reflection of their practice.” — Calls them "The Bruise Brothers".

On getting to fuss at Trevor Lawrence after spiking the ball:

"When he gets to New York or wherever you think he’s going, he can spike the ball. But not here.” — “Next time I’m going to put him on kickoff coverage and let him cover the kick."

On NFL teams looking at Lawrence:

“I don’t know what you would want in a quarterback that he doesn’t possess. You want size? You got it. You want a guy that can run? You got it. You want a guy that’s humble? You got it.” - On and on and on...

On Lawrence and Etienne:

There is not better two football players than Trevor and Travis. "T-squared” (Can’t type superscript on Twitter for some reason.)

On GT’s punter Pressley Harvin:

“It’s difficult. You just hope he kicks it so far that he outkicks his coverage."

On no triple option at Georgia Tech:

”It's a relief to prepare for Georgia Tech and not have to worry about the triple-option. They know a lot more about them this time than a year ago because of the film they have on them.”

On the 12th anniversary of taking over at Clemson:

  • Said that his wife, Kathleen, gave him a kiss last night a little after midnight and said "Happy Anniversary." He panicked at first, but then realized what she was talking about. 
  • "About this time 12 years ago I was trying to plan out the next seven weeks. Hopefully, we can get a different result at Georgia Tech than we did my first week."

Injury updates:

  • Justin Foster remains out this week.
  • Joseph Ngata practiced last night and could play unless there are setbacks.
  • Xavier Thomas might see more action this week especially if he gets in a full week of practice.
