Dabo Swinney fires back at Steve Spurrier with zinger

Dabo SwinneyClemson coach Dabo Swinney will not back down from Steve Spurrier, and he obviously enjoys the intrastate competition with his South Carolina rival.

After winning the Capital One Bowl on New Year’s, Spurrier, unsolicited, boasted that beating Clemson several years in a row was nice. He obviously was playing to his fans with the line, and his Gamecock supporters loved it.

Well Swinney must have heard about Spurrier’s shot at the Tigers, because he came out with a liner of his own after Clemson beat Ohio State 40-35 to win the Orange Bowl on Friday.

“We’re the first team from the state of South Carolina to win a BCS game,” Swinney said in the postgame ceremony.

Great line from Swinney. And we have to give him a ton of credit — not just for the great line — but for doing a great job with the Clemson program. He may have lost five games in a row to South Carolina, but achieving three straight double-digit win seasons at Clemson is a heck of an accomplishment.
