Spurrier: I thought about sending him a message about...

Dabo Swinney said early this morning that he has talked to Steve Spurrier a couple of times this year. 

When a reporter asked Spurrier about his communication with the Clemson head coach, a humble Spurrier explained, “He (Dabo) did text message me (after we won the East) and I called him back.  Mark Richt also sent a letter congratulating me on the East championship. I thought about sending him (Dabo) a message about beating Wake Forest, but I didn’t think he wanted to hear that.”

“To tell you the truth, I usually don’t send a message to the winner of the East.”

“I really like Dabo.  I think we have a healthy rivalry.  There’s no bad mouthing in recruiting between South Carolina and Clemson now.  I think that’s the way it should be and I think Dabo and his guys think the same thing.”

About the rivalry, Spurrier wouldn’t mind moving it to Game #1.  “It would make sense if we moved the game to the first game of the year,” Spurrier said.  “That would give fans something to talk about all year.”

“We’ve turned it a little bit, winning the East.  The next two weeks though will really determine our season.  Our players know that.”
