Clemson reminds its players of futility against South Carolina

Dabo Swinney Steve Spurrier AP

Every Clemson football player could probably tell you exactly how many days, hours, minutes and seconds there are until his team’s next meeting with South Carolina. And he could probably tell you Clemson’s record against the Gamecocks in the last five years, too.

That’s because, seemingly as a motivational tool, Clemson has a countdown clock to its next game against South Carolina up in its football facilities.

That’s a fine motivational tool and all, seeing as the annual game against South Carolina is a heated in-state rivalry. But coming off the program’s best finish in the AP poll since 1982, perhaps the reminder could be tailored more toward winning a second national championship and first since 1981.

Although to do that, Clemson will have to beat South Carolina. But surely Steve Spurrier won’t notice this and crack wise about it at any point this year. Nope, definitely not.

    Clemson is no longer competition for South Carolina. It’s just not a fair fight – Spurrier vs Dabo? Spurrier could hang out at the concession stand during the game and still outcoach Dabo. Clemson always has better recruiting years and better players, yet SC consistently beats them like a drum. You figure it out.
