Default Swinney comments on tweet involving Tee Higgins

As a lot of you know, last week Tee Higgins posed in front of an expensive sports car last week at a car dealership and the dealership tweeted the picture to advertise its lot. Instead, it got Higgins in a whole lot of trouble when he did nothing wrong.

The dealer has since taken the tweet down and apologized for using Higgins' likeness for advertising purposes and admitted Higgins knew nothing about it. On Wednesday, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney commented on the incident when he was asked by the media prior to the start of his high school camp.

"It is the world we live in," Swinney said. "It is what it is. I mean, everything is an opportunity to learn. He is one of the best kids that you will ever have and be around. It kind of comes with the territory so we learn from it.

"Obviously, it was a lot of ... what do you call it? Fish bait or click bait? Don't they call it click bait to try and get (you) in some story? That is just the world we live in so you have to be smart and hope that you can avoid those types of situations that create false perceptions. But, as long as you do what is right, you don't have to worry about it."

That certainly wasn't a good luck. Tee seems to be a class act young man though.
