Dabo Swinney brings out the old dude dance moves to celebrate a Clemson football victory.
This could not be more on-brand for Dabo Swinney celebrating a Clemson football win.
The funky football coach saw his team improve to 7-0 with a backup quarterback starting the game in true freshman D.J. Uiagalelei. While he marveled in his first career start filling in for Heisman Trophy frontrunner Trevor Lawrence, Swinney was more blown away by his team’s willingness to avoid being upset at all costs. He viewed it as an awe-inspiring performance.
“What you saw today is not the norm,” via The Athletic’s Grace Raynor. “It’s uncommon … and to be honest with you, what I saw today was inspiring.”
This is how every 50-something white dude dances at a cul-de-sac cookout
You can tell by this video shot off Uiagalelei’s phone that Swinney has practiced this in the mirror before many, many cul-de-sac cookouts in his time on earth. It may have been inspired by something he saw The Temptations do decades ago, but he’s about to bring out something extra saucy once “Y.M.C.A” by The Village People comes on.
When your No. 1 team nearly loses at home to an unranked Boston College Eagles team, why storm the field to celebrate when you can do “The Twist” like Chubby Checker taught us in the locker room. Clemson overcame a massive 18-point deficit to stay perfect. The only thing more perfect than Swinney’s football team is his epic old white dude dance moves.
Even without Lawrence next Saturday vs. Notre Dame, it’s always time to celebrate at Clemson.
