Dabo Swinney Probably Shouldn’t Be Letting His Players Fight In The Locker Room

A video has surfaced online appearing to show Clemson football players MMA style fighting in the locker room.

It’s not known who the two players are, but both are wearing fighting gloves. That likely means this wasn’t just a spontaneous fight that broke out, but a planned activity.

The Tigers just got upset by Syracuse, and I can’t imagine head coach Dabo Swinney is overly hyped at the idea of his players throwing punches in the locker room. How about a little more time on the field or in the film room, and a lot less time fighting with teammates? Seems like that’s the easiest way to get the season back on track.

I also highly doubt Dabo Swinney knew about this or sanctioned a boxing match between two of his players. There’s not a coach in the world who is going to risk injuries during the season. It’s just not going to happen.
