South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp is 0-2 against Clemson and the Gamecocks have lost four in a row in the series.

Even with South Carolina's five-game winning streak at the end of the Steve Spurrier, the Tigers have won 14 of the last 21 games in the series and will likely be favored to make it five in a row this fall. Muschamp told Scott Keepfer of the Greenville News that it's up to the Gamecocks to make it more of a rivalry and talking is pointless until games are won on the field.

“Ain’t no doubt about it – we need to make it more of a rivalry,” Muschamp said. “There’s no question we need to do a better job on our side. Coach Spurrier beat him (Swinney) five times in a row, so he could say whatever he wanted to. As a matter of fact, Coach Spurrier could say whatever he wanted to no matter what.”

Muschamp put a little spice in the verbal war in mid-April when describing his days as an assistant coach at LSU.

“We were at the real Death Valley, not the one somewhere else,” Muschamp told attendees at a Gaston County (N.C.) Sports Hall of Fame gathering.

Two days later, Swinney smiled while giving his response.

“I like the Death Valley that I am at,” Swinney said. “We will keep working on it. We’ve lost about two games in five years so we’ll pick it up and keep working hard and see if we can get a little better.”
