The Origin of Clemson's BYOG Mantra



If you've been following Clemson football this season, you may have heard the phrase "Bring Your Own Guts", and you might also be wondering where that all came from. Well, it all started with Coach Dabo Swinney's speech after the rain-soaked game vs. Notre Dame. Clemson won 22-24, a close fight against arguably their toughest opponent all season. The game was played right in the middle of Hurricane Joaquin, and the rain was coming down like crazy. The Tigers came out on top and kept rolling through the rest of the regular season.

Dabo's speech started a whole wave of people off using the phrase in regards to Clemson Football. And so far, Clemson's season has held up to the meaning behind "bring your own guts." The Tigers are 13-0 and ranked number one going into the Orange Bowl, where they will face off against the third-ranked Oklahoma Sooners on New Years Eve for a chance to play in the National Championship. 

Thanks to Dabo Swinney and the 2015 Clemson Tigers, a new epic mantra has entered the college football world. We're likely to be hearing this one for years to come.

Check out the highlights from this epic game below.
