Dabo Swinney responds to Steve Spurrier’s latest jab (AUDIO)

Dabo Swinney took the high road Tuesday

Dabo Swinney was asked the million dollar question Tuesday: Did he hear what Steve Spurrier said about him Monday!?!? The answer was yes, and normally Swinney doesn’t let Spurrier get away with a swipe at Clemson, but this time Dabo didn’t seem the least bit upset about what he heard.

“People just need to kind of back of the ledge,” Swinney said. “Personally, I really think he was trying to pay me a compliment. I think…I think. I know it was kind of a roundabout way of getting there, it would be kind of like me telling me wife that I think you should wear this dress, this dress looks great on you, you don’t look nearly as fat in that dress. So it was kind of a roundabout way, but I take it as a compliment.”

Swinney went on the reiterate his previous comments on Marcus Lattimore and his wishes for a speedy and full recovery for the Gamecock running back. Take a listen to the full clip below.

  1. Well,well..I guess I was right…dabo saw the uniqueness of the situation and was able to see Spurrier was in fact waiving the flag and creating health to the rivalry as has been sos’s MO. Dabo should know sometimes emotions skew the true intent and context of our comments. smart by dabo,I think it was an obvious thankyou for well wishes as SOS and USC and fans reciprocated to so very many.

    too back k-mac and kornblut Don’t want to see it, they would rather ignore to try to stir something up. Geesh guys, is this professional media? Really?
