Swofford Releases Statement

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- ACC Commissioner John Swofford issued the following statement today:

"The events that occurred during Saturday's football game between South Carolina and Clemson have no place in college football. Those events, which marred an otherwise quality game between two great rivals, are inexcusable, and should not be acceptable to anyone who cares about and loves the college game.

Discussions between this office and Clemson Director of Athletics Terry Don Phillips, as well as with SEC Commissioner Mike Slive, have taken place last night and this morning as part of a thorough review of the unfortunate events that transpired. We will complete this review as soon as possible."
