One would think that SEC talk show host Paul Finebaum would have more than Clemson on his mind this week. Guess not.
The SEC has some huge games on this weekend’s schedule. That alone should have him wanting to discuss the top ten matchup between No. 8 Arkansas at No. 2 Georgia. Or No. 12 Ole Miss at No. 1 Alabama. Instead his sights are set on Dabo Swinney and Clemson.
It began earlier this week on ESPN’s College Football Podcast when Finebaum voiced his thoughts on the Tigers’ slow start to the 2021 season, taking shots at Swinney, calling him a terrible loser that nobody wants to hear from.
He went on to discuss Swinney’s personality and how he feels everyone is looking at him currently, in nauseating detail.
“Dabo Swinney, for all of his charm, is a pretty lousy loser,” Finebaum said. “Nobody wants to hear his whine, nobody really wants to hear him say whatever he says. He’s a good winner. Well, he’s not even a good winner, but he’s a terrible loser.”
Then there are his latest comments today. Finebaum he joined ESPN’s Heather Dinich and Robert Griffin III on ‘Get Up’ to discuss Clemson’s offensive struggles so far this season, along with the question about whether or not their time as a national contender is over.
“Dabo’s dynasty is done,” Finebaum said. “I do not like anything I see there.”
The Clemson program was built on adversity. And the struggles the Tigers a facing today will make the program better.
“Our program was built through and from adversity over the last 12 years or so,’ Swinney said on Sunday. “So we’ve been here before.”
Swinney has thrived in these situations over the years. He is at his best when he is doubted. With that said though, this may end up being his and his program’s biggest challenge of overcoming adversity. And it might take a little longer than most fans would like to get it rectified.
