The Jedi mind tricks between Steve Spurrier and Dabo Swinney have reached a new level. It appears that Dabo has installed countdown clocks throughout the team’s facility that will strike zero on the day South Carolina and Clemson meet. And if that’s not good enough, every clock has “0-5″ plastered on it, recognizing the Tigers’ half-decade of futility.

Clemson may be the only team from South Carolina to ever win a BCS bowl game, but Spurrier’s dig about holding the “state championship” has apparently stuck in Dabo’s craw.
