Dabo says he apologized to Satterfield about the Booth punch, said he's the last kid he would expect to see so that. Comes from a great family. "But there will be consequences this week"

Swinney doesn’t just want good players at his program; he wants ones who will represent the school well, which is why he is promising consequences. There is no room in the game for throwing punches like that.
