After beating Clemson last week, a Steve Spurrier quote on Clemson began circulating the Internet. Although Spurrier never actually delivered the words himself, South Carolina play-by-play man, Todd Ellis delivered it for him.
Turns out, this quote was indeed misattributed, and Steve Spurrier never did take this Clemson jab. Well, at least not this one.
Flash forward to Clemson practice this week, and of course someone asked Dabo Swinney about Spurrier’s comment which obviously made its way back to him. At the time Dabo did not know about the “issues” with these relayed comments.
At first it appeared Dabo might avoid the topic and provide the vintage “we need to concentrate on the ACC Championship route,” but instead he decided to take a long trip down Retaliation Lane. On a related note, Dabo appears to have done some serious, serious South Carolina history homework.
Take it away, sir.
