From Dan Wetzel of Yahoo:

Spurrier should've been gracious enough to see that shared experience in Swinney's words. If, for some reason, there is too much animosity there, Spurrier could've just held his tongue. It was Marcus Lattimore Day, not Steve Spurrier Day.

Instead, he took it to the worst of the political game, where the other guy is never anything but a terrible person and even his good ideas are to be held in contempt. Instead he acted like the worst of the fans, obsessed with not just wins and losses but humiliations and insults, focused on slight differences rather than massive commonalities.
Instead he took the collegiality out of college sports.

The expectation is Spurrier will address his failure here. He's too smart and too experienced to not realize his mistake. Or else, hopefully there is still someone still capable of sitting him down and explaining it.
College coaches like to fashion themselves as teachers and unfortunately on this one, a bad injury that was bringing out the good in everyone, Steve Spurrier's lesson was how not to act.
