Spurrier Likes USC-Clemson Rivalry

Steve Spurrier is a fan of the South Carolina-Clemson rivalry.  He’s especially pleased that little venom exists between the two programs at this point — fans not included, of course.

“I think we have a good, healthy rivalry with Clemson now.  There’s no bad-mouthing in recruiting, at least that I know of, between Clemson and South Carolina now.  I realize some fans don’t want to hear that, but I believe that’s the way it should be.  I think Dabo (Swinney) and his guys believe that’s the way it should be, also.”

Spurrier even received a congratulatory text from Clemson’s coach upon winning the SEC East.  “He did text message me and I called him back and said, ‘I appreciate it.’  Usually most coaches don’t do that.”  (Spurrier said Mark Richt also congratulated him.)

“He’s a good person, good coach,” Spurrier said of Swinney.  “And he runs a good program up there.”

You wouldn’t catch Dan Mullen saying that kind of stuff about the MSU-Ole Miss rivalry.  Heck, you wouldn’t have caught Spurrier saying anything like that about the Florida-FSU rivalry 15 years ago.

Age must be mellowing the Ol’ Ball Coach a bit.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that.  It’s hard to go wrong by showing class.
