Found October 15, 2013 on College Spun:
Dabo Swinney has a big task on his hands this week as he prepares his team to take on Jameis Winston and the Florida State Seminoles in a battle between undefeated teams. Despite it being a home game for the Tigers, FSU is a slight favorite, and today Swinney was asked what he thought about it and if the guys were prepared — he had a perfect response: Swinney: “We might lose the ball game, but it won’t be because we aren’t prepared. ..Ain’t nobody going to skin us and eat us alive.” — SportsTalk (@sportstalksc) October 15, 2013 Dabo says he doesn’t get into the underdog role, and doesn’t think he will use as motivation. “It comes down to execution. This is a tossup” — TigerNet.com (@ClemsonTigerNet) October 15, 2013 He’s right about this one being a toss-up — it’s two great teams facing off under the lights, and will likely come down to a big play here or there. The game kicks off at 8:00 Saturday night on ABC.
