So when the football team was being honored for having another top 10 season and winning the Capitol One Bowl you know he had to say something about 'that orange team.'
As much as he talks about Dabo Swinney and the Tigers--well, turns out he is just doing it for the fans.
Spurrier on the Clemson barbs: "When I talk, it’s just all talk as everybody knows, and it’s for our people."

Now isn't that sweet? It gets better. He went on to talk about why he does what he does and even told Clemson fans what they should do if it bothers them (and it wasn't inappropriate).
"...when I talk its just all talk as everyone knows, and it’s for our people. It’s not for the other school’s people. And when Dabo talks it’s for his people. It doesn’t bother me I can assure you anything he says. That’s what we do in the offseason, we have to talk a little bit. So I am talking to the Gamecocks. The other people shouldn’t listen to me really, but they may I don’t know.”So no harm intended folks. It's all for show (in case you didn't know).
