Is there any way to get a television show featuring Steve Spurrier and Dabo Swinney dropping one-liners on each other one after another? Because right now, they have got the best two-man show going in all of college football. Want to stir the pot a little? Ask Spurrier what he thinks of Clemson. Ask Swinney what he thinks about Spurrier. Ready ... set ... talk trash! Who knew Spurrier and Swinney would become such a perfect match? In an era when most coaches are too buttoned up and PC to speak in anything other than clichÃ©s, Spurrier and Swinney have honed their barb-jabbing skills, taking them to new heights every time they deliver a sound bite.
BRISTOL, Conn. -- Vanderbilt has played in three consecutive bowl games for the first time in school history.

It seems it pays to be smart in college football nowadays. “You’re not walking into a home having to apologize about being smart,” new Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said.
