Dabo disses Corch.

I can feel a whole new book of grievances coming on.

… Swinney said he doesn’t watch many Big Ten games during the season but felt the conference was overrated after watching Ohio State in preparation for the bowl game.

“Go back to last year. We’re trying to figure out a way to put four Big Ten teams in the playoff,” Swinney said. “And I didn’t pay no attention to the Big Ten. You just kind of buy it (the Big Ten hype), right? That’s just what’s out there. And then we get ready to play Ohio State and I start watching the tape, I watch every single game and I go in and tell our guys, I’m like, ‘Boys, these guys are in trouble.’ I mean, I’ve watched the whole league, I’ve gone through the whole league both sides, these guys are in trouble. And that’s exactly what happened.”

Next time your teams meet, Dabo, I’d keep an eye on how many timeouts Meyer keeps in his pocket in the second half.  Just sayin’.

“I’m not going to be the Twitter police.”

South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley decided to take a little pride in his team on social media and promptly got the kind of feedback that makes you proud to be a fan of college football.

South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley made some waves in the offseason, giving a few confident thoughts about how his team stacks up with national champion Clemson. Predictably, this got him a fair share of flack on social media.

And a couple unlikely users led the way.

“It was crazy,” Bentley said. “These two elderly ladies always killing me on it. That’s part of the reason you stay off Twitter.”

Only in America.

Eh, but who’s counting?

I’m not sure if it qualifies as bulletin board material, but the South Carolina Department of Transportation is installing two more highway signs celebrating the Gamecocks’ national championship in women’s basketball than it did for Clemson’s football natty.

Then again, maybe that’s their way of saying South Carolina’s a basketball state now.

They said, they said.

Talk about your meteor pissing match — Dabo and Boom (“obviously, there was a racial slur”) argue about insults being tossed by Clemson players before their game without having any direct knowledge of whether or not that occurred.

Setting the tone

Well, I see this morning that several Gamecock players had their fee-fees hurt by some of Clemson’s actions towards the end of last night’s blowout.

The 56-7 loss stung plenty for the South Carolina football team.

The way Clemson acted in the final minutes, including late timeouts and showboating, was a step too far, USC players said.

Multiple Gamecocks players directly expressed their displeasure at the way the Tigers finished out Saturday’s Palmetto Bowl. The word “classless” was thrown around, as several South Carolina players said this one will stick in their craws for a while.

“I feel like they kind of disrespected us at the end,” safety D.J. Smith said. “Holding the ball and doing all that showboating. I feel like it wasn’t really classy, but it is a rivalry game. It’s going to stick with all of us and we’re going to remember.”

Wide receiver Terry Googer was visibly upset coming off the field, having to be directed to the locker room before coming out to sing the alma mater.

“Classless is not a strong enough word to describe the actions!” Googer tweeted.

The Gamecocks were on the wrong end of a 56-7 score. Clemson started pulling starters with more than 18 minutes to go. The Tigers used back-to-back timeouts to give seniors and departing juniors a curtain call as the game wound down.

“That last couple minutes was pretty disrespectful,” tight end Hayden Hurst said. “We’ve got a year to think about that and let it sink in.”

Running back A.J. Turner said coach Will Muschamp in the postgame told the team he didn’t like what Clemson did.

Did he now.  I wonder how the team took Boom’s classy act before the game’s start.

“Tensions higher”? Color me shocked.

Tommy Bowden, the gift that keeps on giving

Thanksgiving may only be a meal, but I suspect Agent Muschamp is mighty grateful for the assist he just got from Clemson’s former head coach.  (h/t)

I suspect that bad boy’s already gone up on a few locker room walls.  Hell, Boom’s probably gonna stuff a turkey or two with it while he’s at it.

Auburn with a lake vs. Auburn

It suddenly dawned on me that the Auburn/Clemson game could be a lot of fun to watch.

Meanwhile, Auburn has more questions than answers at many of its positions.

For one, a newcomer could be Auburn’s starting quarterback when Clemson comes to the Plains. Auburn’s identity could also change at several position groups, including the entire defense with the addition of five new staff members, including former Clemson defensive coordinator Kevin Steele.

Steele was fired at Clemson after West Virginia knocked off the Tigers 70-33 in the 2012 Orange Bowl.

Deshaun Watson facing the Auburn defense does not promise to generate a low-scoring result.
