Georgia Tech cornerback Rod Sweeting didn’t appear to be a big fan of doing an interview when he was called up to the podium following the Yellow Jackets’ 21-7 win over USC to accept the MVP award.
But CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson asked Sweeting how the Yellow Jackets were able to have such a great defensive effort against USC and she received an all-too-honest response:
Interpret that how you will, but it was definitely an S-bomb. The kind you get when you’re answering a question from one of your friends, not a reporter during a broadcast that was not only shown in millions of homes, but also transmitted throughout the Sun Bowl.
To Sweeting’s credit, after a brief pause, he composed himself and gave a decent answer.
Then he called Wolfson “Sir.”
Here’s guessing that if Sweeting goes on to have a professional career, he won’t be doing many more live interviews.
