Colin Cowherd was one of many people who didn’t think that Clemson could beat Alabama, but he went even further than that in November. He called Clemson a “fraud” and said they would “get their ears boxed by whoever they play” in the postseason.
Dabo Swinney caught wind of the comments and absolutely unloaded on him in his post-game comments. He had absolutely no regard for Cowherd’s life and ripped him apart:
“At the end of the day, we left no doubt tonight. We wanted to play Alabama because now y’all got to change your stories. You got to change the narrative. Y’all got to mix it up. The guy that called us a fraud? Ask Alabama if we’re a fraud. Was the name Colin Cowherd? I don’t know him, never met him. Ask Alabama if we’re a fraud. Ask Ohio State if we’re a fraud. Ask Oklahoma if we’re a fraud.
“The only fraud is that guy, because he didn’t do his homework. I hope y’all print that.”
And that is definitely going to get printed by everyone. The Tigers ended a 26-game winning streak for Alabama and of course dismantled Ohio State 31-0 to get there too. Not sure there’s recovering from that one for Cowherd.
