We claim fair use of the material under 17 U.S. Code § 107. We have used the link to this video in an article posted on Spoilit News (http://spoilit.com/news/). A draft of the text of that article is as follows: As we all know, the Clemson Tigers clinched the Collage Football National Championship on January 9, 2017, beating Alabama in a nail-biter 35-31. Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney is the only man since 1936 (which marked the beginning of the AP poll era) to have a national championship as both a player and as a coach. His speech during the trophy presentation on Monday night was moving. He focused on the culture and character of his team. He has instilled in his team the importance of loving each other, handling the spotlight with wisdom, and perseverance. This culture and work ethic took the Clemson Tigers to the mountain top for the first time in 35 years. Through perseverance, the Tigers won the game with a stunning touchdown in the final seconds of regulation play to shock the Crimson Tide and the world. Below is a transcript and video of Dabo Swinney’s victory speech. “It’s a blessing. It’s surreal. I love my team. I told them tonight that the difference in this game would be the love that they have for each other. I knew they wouldn’t quit. And I talked to them about letting the light inside of them always be brighter than the light that’s shining on them and if they focused on that, they’d be okay. But, I’m just telling you, only God can do this. Eight years ago Terry Don Phillips gave me a chance to lead this program. We set out to put Clemson back on top. We came up a little short last year, but tonight at the top of the mountain that Clemson flag is flying. And I’m telling you…this has been the most incredible team I’ve ever been around. Y’all saw there hearts, and it’s been there all year, despite what some people say. Our fans, they deserve this. Thirty five years since Clemson has been on top. Credit to all of my teams. All of my teams have have a piece of these. They’ve all been a part of this journey. It’s been a heck of ride. And everything we’ve done once, we’ve done again. Hopefully before they put me out to pasture we can do this a few more times. Go Tigers.”

Dabo Swinney dances with his Clemson football team and the Atlantic Division Trophy in the locker room after beating #16 Florida State 23-13. SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oqg3iE The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is a collegiate athletic conference in the United States in which its fifteen member universities compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA's) Division I, with its football teams competing in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the highest levels for athletic competition in US-based collegiate sports. The ACC sponsors competition in twenty-five sports with many of its member institutions' athletic programs held in high regard nationally. ACC teams and athletes have claimed dozens of national championships in multiple sports throughout the conference's history. Generally, the ACC's top athletes and teams in any particular sport in a given year are considered to be among the top collegiate competitors in the nation. The ACC is considered to be one of the six collegiate power conferences, all of which enjoy extensive media coverage and automatic qualifying for their football champion into the Bowl Championship Series (BCS). With the advent of the College Football Playoff in 2014, the ACC will be one of five conferences with a contractual tie-in to an "access bowl", the successors to the BCS. Founded in 1953 in Greensboro, North Carolina, by seven universities located in the South Atlantic States, the conference added additional members in late 1953, 1979, 1991, 2004, and 2013. The 2004 and 2013 additions extended the conference's footprint into the Northeast and Midwest. The most recent expansion in 2013 saw the additions of the University of Notre Dame, the University of Pittsburgh, and Syracuse University. In 2012, the University of Maryland's Board of Regents voted to withdraw from the ACC to join the Big Ten Conference. On November 28, 2012, the ACC's Council of Presidents voted unanimously to invite the University of Louisville as a full member, replacing Maryland.
