Default Swinney on style points: "I am not about that at all"

From Swinney's Monday Radio Show

"If it comes down to style points we will have to be on the outside looking in because I am not about that at all. I am just worried about playing well and playing to a standard.

I do want to dominate the opponent but I am not out there trying to embarrass people and things like that. I am not going to get a player hurt when you are up 45-0 and really the game is over. I know some people may not like that but that is just the way it is."

Dabo should stick to the "get the back ups experience" and "get playing time for those who have worked hard" story line.

We all know and agree that key players do not need to get unnecessary injuries, but the way this statement is worded it almost sounds like it is OK for back ups to get injured but not OK for starters.

I don't think he meant it that way but he was right that if he had left a player like Trevor in and they got hurt then everyone would have been on his case about why did you have him in the game.

Robert, I totally agree with you, just that it could have been worded differently in out politically correct world.
