I completely agree with everyone here that the timing of Spurrier's comments was questionable and classless.
Dabo was trying to pay a compliment to a hard working young man who football fans and coaches around the country were sad to see got injured and they all hope he heals soon. After all, wasn't that the whole point of Marcus Lattimore Day in Columbia? To show support for #21.
Was WHAT Spurrier said out of line? absolutely not.
He has always trash talked teams that he beats repeatedly (He used to say you can't spell "Citrus without UT" when he was at Florida because Tennessee always had to settle for the Citrus Bowl). Like it or not, Clemson fans, his team has beat your team 3 years in a row.
Now with that said, was the TIMING out of line? ABSOLUTELY!!!
He accomplished nothing by insulting Clemson at a moment like that, when they were supposed to be showing support for a fallen teammate, and after Dabo complimented a player on his team.
All it did was motivate the Tigers.
Spurrier has fully transformed into a dirt pecker.
Someone in the coaching business told me "Spurrier made a tactical error"
