10 Bold Predictions from ESPN
Thought this was funny:
Perhaps no rival coaches exchange verbal jabs as much as Clemson's Dabo Swinney and South Carolina's Steve Spurrier. Spurrier is 6-2 against the Tigers during his nine-year tenure at South Carolina, and he loves reminding Swinney about his recent five-game winning streak in the series.
After South Carolina defeated Wisconsin 34-24 in the Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day, Spurrier said winning bowl games in Orlando was nice, and "that state championship isn't bad, either." Two days later, after Clemson beat Ohio State 40-35 in the Discover Orange Bowl, Swinney boasted about the Tigers becoming the first team from South Carolina to win a BCS bowl game.
The Gamecocks and Tigers might want to move their annual game to a beach in Charleston, S.C., or a parking lot outside a mill in Greenville, S.C. Spurrier would probably win, regardless of the setting.
