It’s been a war of words the past week between South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and Clemson head man Dabo Swinney. Spurrier, after his Gamecocks knocked off Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl, referenced winning the “state championship” in his post-game speech. Swinney countered last night after the Tigers’ Orange Bowl win by proclaiming Clemson as the “first team from South Carolina to ever win a BCS bowl game.”
Swinney’s rebuttal is clearly resonating with Tigers fans. Via Kristan Alewine, we’ve got a ridiculous photo of a young CU fan holding up a gigantic sign trolling Spurrier and the Gamecocks. It was taken this morning ahead of the Tigers players returning to campus.
Whether you think it’s cute or offensive, one thing is for sure. This rivalry is just getting started.
