Following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota, violence and riots erupted across America, and many voices from the world of sports have spoken up.
According to Nicole Auerbach, Swinney addressed the media Monday and said, “We are all hurting for the Floyd family and our country. … We have all witnessed just disgusting acts of evil. That’s really the only word I can appropriately use.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I’m not sure how else you could describe what’s going on in America. Floyd’s death following police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on his neck was horrific and terrible.
The riots that have broken out across the country are also terrible and horrific. The country is a hell of a lot of pain right now.
There’s simply no other way to sum it up. It’s tragic and heartbreaking.

Say a prayer for our nation. If there was ever a time we needed it, it’s right now. Props to Swinney for speaking up. He wasn’t the first, and I’m damn sure he won’t be the last.
We’ll take all the love and kind words we can get at this point.
