Default Setting the record straight on the pregame handshake

There is a lot of misinformation out there about the pregame handshake between Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney and South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp. There are even some out there saying that it did not happen.

Well it did happen. I was waiting at midfield for the handshake to get a picture. It didn't happen for a while. At one point Muschamp came to midfield to do the handshake, but at that time Swinney and the Tigers were doing the arm-and-arm walk towards the west end zone so Swinney did not even see Muschamp at midfield.

Later in pregame Swinney walked all the way down to South Carolina's 20- or 30-yard line and the two coaches had the handshake.

So yes there was a handshake.

While those around me did not see the handshake, we did see Dabo running back from the SC end during warmups and nearly tripping on some media guys camera wire.
