"There is no justification for the altercations that took place at the end of the Clemson vs. South Carolina game, and I am disappointed in the actions of some of our players. But, 90 percent of them either stayed out of it or tried to break it up.
"I hurt for our players and coaches because I know how hard they worked this season. At the same time, I understand the mission of the university, the importance of integrity, and thus accept the decisions made by our administration and the Atlantic Coast
"I am disappointed that we are not going to a bowl game. I feel for the players and our assistant coaches.
"I am especially disappointed for the seniors, who won't have another opportunity to play for Clemson. These seniors contributed ignificantly to our three top 10 wins within the last 15 games. Their leadership was the biggest reason we were able to overcame a 1-4 start to become bowl eligible, something that had not been
accomplished previously in ACC history.
