What’s the secret to Ohio State’s success? According to Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, the Buckeyes’ trick might be their coach’s underwear.
On Friday, at a Fiesta Bowl joint news conference for Meyer and Swinney, the coaches were asked about how to succeed on gamedays. Meyer launched into a thoughtful lecture on the importance of preparation, then ended with, “It’s not because of the lucky t-shirt or good fortunes.”
Swinney smiled and said, “You mean the gameday underwear, that’s not a key reason?”
Meyer responded that, “I’m not saying I don’t wear it.”
Swinney then joked that he had read Meyer’s book, referencing a wisecrack from earlier in the week about wanting to read the book before the Fiesta Bowl on Saturday.
Via Joe Gorchow, here’s a clip of the exchange.
