Dabo Swinney: Dabo 'Dat Ticket Gamecock
Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney was issued a speeding ticket on September 3rd after being clocked at 63 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone in Pickens, South Carolina. Now policeman Michael McClatchy, the issuing officer, is out of a job. He claims that he was fired because he issued a citation to a popular, high profile college football coach. Wrongful termination? Who knows, but McClatchy now has legal representation. By the way, do you think it matters that Officer McClatchy is a South Carolina fan? Everyone knows that Gamecocks and Tigers don't mix in South Carolina. Just sayin...
