Daboisms by Clemson coach Dabo Swinney:

''Listen, we give you scholarships, we give you stipends and meals and a place to live. We give you nice uniforms. I can't give you guts, and I can't give you heart. Tonight, it was B.Y.O.G. - bring your own guts. And they brought some guts and some heart, and they never quit until the last play.'' - Swinney, following Clemson's 24-22 victory over Notre Dame on Oct 3.

''I'm sick of it. I'm serious. I don't even know why we bring up the dadgummed word.'' - Swinney, after beating Georgia Tech on Oct. 10, when asked if his team had eliminated the term ''Clemsoning'' with its play this season.

---

''That's why Carolina's in Chapel Hill and USC's in California and the university in this state always has been, always will be Clemson. . You can print that, tweet that, whatever.'' - Swinney, in December 2011, answering back to a comment misattributed to South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier slamming Clemson.

---

''I said, `I couldn't get Jesus tickets' and that's the truth.'' - Swinney in September when asked about ticket requests for Notre Dame's game at Clemson.

---

''There was no fake punt. That was (punter Andy) Teasdall losing his mind. I mean like, went crazy. I don't have an answer for you. We have a play called Rambo and it's third-and-forever and he thinks he's Superman or whatever.'' - Swinney about punter Andy Teasdall's failed fake punt try in the ACC championship game

''We'll open up Death Valley and serve pizza to everybody. That'll be a time to celebrate a poll. Until then it doesn't matter.'' - Swinney before the season's first College Football Playoff rankings when asked if the Tigers would celebrate getting in. Swinney delivered on the pizza party after Clemson's 45-37 win over North Carolina in the ACC championship game.

---

''Alabama's the smartest state: Four As and a B.'' - Swinney, an Alabama native, on his home state.

---

''Best is the standard.'' - Swinney's oft-spoken motto to players.

---

''That's it. I don't have anything new for this one.'' - Swinney on Sunday when asked if he's got some new slogans ready for the championship game.
