The Tigers coach retaliates and totally destroys Spurrier

Steve Spurrier, South Carolina's college football coach was trying to make a case for his team earlier this week and made the following statement: "We may not be LSU or Alabama, but we ain't Clemson."
That didn't sit too well with Clemson Tigers coach Dabo Swinney. After hearing about Spurrier's remarks from a reporter, the Tigers coach proceeded to detroy South Carolina's history and program with lines like "they're never going to be Clemson, and no three game win streak will change that," while giving political answers like "I have a lot of respect for Coach Spurrier."
This isn't the first time Steve Spurrier has irked others around college football. He likes to get a dig in here and there, but no one has ever calmly and completely detroyed one of Spurrier's comments.
A few favorite lines:
"My grandkids won't live long enough to see this turn into a real rivalry."
"We've won more bowl games than they've even been to."
"We got 100 plus more wins than South Carolina. That's reality."
"The best era of South Carolina football is right now. After five years [at South Carolina] coach Spurrier has 35 wins. If I had 35 wins in five years there'd be a new coach here. Because there's a different standard at Clemson than there is at South Carolina."
"Now what do you want to talk about, anything else?"
Well done Dabo. Well done.
