Booger McFarland isn't having the excuses made over the last few months for the stunning margin of victory Clemson had.
Booger McFarland isn't having the excuses made over the last few months for the stunning margin of victory Clemson had.

Excuses made by people defending Alabama after its 44-16 loss to Clemson in January reached a breaking point for one ESPN analyst on Thursday.

Former LSU defensive lineman and current Monday Night Football analyst Booger McFarland appeared on the Paul Finebaum Show and brought up what he's heard from Alabama apologists over the last few months.

"I’ve been listening to your show and I’ve kinda been a little disappointed - and here’s why. Everyone seems to say when Alabama loses, the kids aren’t focused," McFarland said. "Mack Wilson is worried about winning the Butkus (Award). These players are concerned with their individual accolades. How about saying that Clemson was the better team and (Alabama) got beat. That’s the one thing that people who call into (Finebaum’s show) don’t say.

"Sometimes there isn’t a reason or excuse and the other team is better...What about that the other team is just better? Dabo has done one hell of a job. And I was at the game, Paul, Clemson lined up and beat Alabama. It wasn’t a fluke. Tua (Tagovailoa) wasn’t sick and didn’t have the flu.

"(Clemson) just lined up and beat Alabama and hit them square in the mouth and beat them. And I think that’s the thing that if you ask him, Nick Saban, he’ll tell you (that)...Let’s stop with the excuses. Alabama got beat by a better team that’s called the Clemson Tigers.”

Longtime college football announced Tim Brando predicted a repeat of last year's title game result on the same SEC Network-simulcast on Thursday.
