Steve Spurrier takes shot at Dabo Swinney over ‘different planets’ comment

Dabo-Swinney-Steve-SpurrierSteve Spurrier and Dabo Swinney probably do not like each other. The two coaches have never openly admitted that they dislike one another, but all the signs are there. At ACC media days on Monday, Swinney joked that he and Spurrier are “from different planets” when asked about their relationship.

“He’s from Pluto and I’m from Mars,” the Clemson coach joked.

Of course, Spurrier couldn’t let that one slide. When asked on Tuesday about Swinney’s quote, the 69-year-old had to point out how Swinney called Pluto a planet.

For those of you who don’t follow science (or know how to use Google), Pluto was known as the ninth planet before 2006 but is now classified as a dwarf planet. So while Swinney was correct in that Pluto is still a planet of some sort, Spurrier succeeded in making him look bad.

The Ole Ball Coach was also asked about Swinney rubbing it in his face last year that Clemson is the only team from South Carolina to win a BCS bowl game.

The South Carolina-Clemson rivalry is as good as it has ever been. The success of the two programs in recent years is the main reason for that, but the constant exchanging of jabs between Spurrier and Swinney is what really keeps us entertained.
