Swinney vs. Spurrier: Who has the edge?

By Andrea Adelson

Dabo Swinney and Steve Spurrier have headlined the recent rivalry between Clemson and South Carolina.

So who has the upper-hand?

I debated this topic with SEC blogger Chris Low, writing this about Swinney:
Here is where Swinney has the upper hand: in the championships column. In fact, you could argue that Swinney has done more for the Tigers in a shorter period of time. Clemson goes into its game against South Carolina on Saturday with a higher ranking and a better record.

Chris says of Spurrier:
I realize for ACC fans that this may be a bit too much football talk with basketball season already under way, but comparing Spurrier to Swinney is akin to comparing Augusta National to your standard country club course.

It's on, Chris!
