Steve Spurrier trolls Clemson fans again
South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier was at it again on Tuesday with his trolling of Clemson Tigers fans, this time saying he would try not to upset them until Nov. 29...when South Carolina aims for its sixth straight victory against Clemson.
Spurrier on upset Clemson fans: "They're interpreting too much...I'll try not to say anything to upset them, at least the next two weeks."— Michael Haney (@WorldofHaney) November 18, 2014
After Spurrier led South Carolina to an overtime win over the Florida Gators on Saturday, Spurrier referred to the fact that rival Clemson had fallen to Georgia Tech earlier in the day, and went on to address the Tigers as "that team from upstate."
Dating back to 2009, Spurrier and the Gamecocks have won five straight over Clemson, meaning that Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney has yet to beat Spurrier in a head-to-head meeting. His next chance comes Nov. 29 at Death Valley in Clemson.
Following the win over Florida, South Carolina improved to 5-5 on the season and will face South Alabama this week at home before heading to Clemson. The Tigers dropped to 7-3 with their loss Saturday and will face Georgia State this week.
