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.
