Clemson manhandled Florida State in the first half, amassing a 28-0 lead. But Tigers coach Dabo Swinney wasn't pleased and chose to make an example out of placekicker B.T. Potter, who missed a chip-shot field goal.

There are two schools of thought here. The first one is that Swinney is a fiery competitor who is going to coach the same way regardless of score. The other is that he's needlessly embarrassing one of his players -- one who may not have the agency to fire back.

How one feels about this clip probably depends on how one feels about Swinney.
