Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney was mixed up in a wild scene during postgame interview after his No. 12 Clemson held on in the pouring rain to beat No. 6 Notre Dame, 24-22 Saturday night.
Boasting about his team and dropping tidbits such as “BYOG,” which Swinney said stood for “bring your own guts,” the coach's passionate interview was cut short when the studio suddenly cut to the SportsCenter studio which awkwardly showed its two anchors quietly scrolling through their iPads as they prepared for the upcoming show — unaware they were live on air.
Here's the hilarious moment on video when viewers' television screens went from wet madness to library quiet in an instant:
All that was missing was the Jeopardy theme song.
But conspiracy theorists claim the jump wasn't so accidental and maybe Swinney's language got a little too salty for network TV or, mercy, he mentioned God.
Deadspin uncovered the missing footage and it was nothing more than Swinney simply answering a question about what he told his team at a specific point in the game.
ESPN senior director of PR, Kerri Potts, later clarified the technical difficulty in a tweet.
"As a result of an error in TV transmission, we inadvertently missed 12 seconds of Dabo Swinney's postgame interview," Potts tweeted. "We apologize."
