Leading up to the 2016 College Football Playoff, radio host Colin Cowherd gave Clemson no shot at winning a national title. The longtime radio host went as far as calling the Tigers “a fraud.”
Clemson cruised by Ohio State by shutting the Buckeyes out in the semifinal round, then knocked off Alabama 35-31 to win their first national title in more than 30 years.
After that win, Swinney infamously took his shot at Cowherd.
“Was his name Colin Cowherd,” Swinney quipped. “The only fraud is that guy.”
On a recent appearance the Cowherd’s podcast, the two go back in time and relive the back and forth.
