Not a Fraud: Colin Cowherd says ESPN hated Swinney diatribe after beating Bama

This past week, Cowherd and Swinney were able to laugh about a January 2017 incident, with Swinney thanking Cowherd for the ammunition he needed to get his team fired up.

LOL...ESPN hated it !!!!

Of course they did because it spoiled their little $EC circle jerk love fest.

They hated the Santa Clara beatdown even more.

I think both games even made Paul Finebaum cry.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


Cowherd meant ESPN hated it because it gave press to Cowherd


May 14, 2021, 10:01 PM

instead of press to ESPN.

ESPN wished Dabo would've said the comment about one of their guys because those comments boost ratings.

Cowherd ratings were boosted due to Dabo.

I can't stand Cowturd. He's super loud and obnoxious and very annoying. I don't particularly care for the talking heads on ESPN, either. I just watch the games and don't need some 'expert' to tell me how.
Cowturd is one of the worst.

Of COURSE ESPN hated Dabo's comments. He was making

their beloved SEC, AND it's most sacred cow, Bama, eat crow. Surprised they didn't censor him. If they had any advance warning, I'm sure they would have had "technical difficulties" during his speech. :)

Embarrassing Article for David Hood

[4]
May 14, 2021, 7:48 PM

So apparently journalism is not a thing on T-Net... the entire article is a joke and based off a false narrative... Cowherd isn't detailing some internal ESPN conspiracy, desired outcome, or bias--because he wasn't working for ESPN at the time, he left for Fox Sports Radio in 2015, and we won the natty in 2017 (2016 season), and Cowherd was on the air of FS1 (TV) and FSR (radio). If a real writer was going to write this article they would take the time to actually do some journalism--Cowherd said ESPN hated Dabo saying that, because it was aired on the ESPN networks and Cowherd was getting a free plug, as a competitor. T-Net writing has been a joke for a while, but this is certainly icing on the cake.

Yes, because the entire article is trying to be a "gotcha" moment on ESPN for hating on Clemson and that is 100% not the case, it's not some behind the scenes look into anything, the comment was about Cowherd being mentioned and THAT was embarrassing ESPN, not that Dabo embarrassed ESPN for calling out Cowherd--WHO WAS NOT AN EMPLOYEE OF THEIRS. Grow up dude.

"Cowherd went on his ESPN radio show..."

No he didn't, wasn't an employee of theirs :)

Great Pro Clemson Interview

[1]
May 14, 2021, 9:02 PM

C'mon guys, that was a great interview. I didn't intend to listen to it all, but couldn't stop smiling and listening. Cowherd had nothing but glowing words for Dabo and Clemson. He admits up front about his big mistake. What more do you want? If anyone listens to that long and entertaining interview they can't help but be pro Dabo and pro Clemson.

To bash the Tigernet staff like that is uncalled for. Don’t like the content on this site? The simple solution would be to stop reading the articles. The overwhelming majority of us really appreciate what the Tigernet staff brings us. This website gives you tons of great content about out Tigers FOR FREE. You don’t donate and even if you did your comment about T-net writing is arrogant and inappropriate. I will say it again, if you don’t like the content on this site you don’t have to read it. If you do decide to read it and don’t like it please refrain from bashing our staff in the comment section. To give your opinion and call out a mistake is one thing. To call their work a joke and say that it has been a joke for a while is another. It’s the off-season and there is nothing wrong with posting an article like this to keep readers engaged IMO.

I realize as a Coot fan that you do not mind making things up and that facts do not matter, hence why every offseason you guys claim next year is the year with no reason in recruiting or coaching or facts to back up those claims. To us Tiger fans, facts matter, spelling matters, grammar matters--BEST is the Standard. So writing an article that the headline and the content are literally made up and the only accurate things in them are the quotes, yet those are even taken out of context. Researching and fact checking before you publish an article is not too much to ask, or expect, writing articles like this create doubt and a lack of trust in the writers ability to accurately report things, and believe me, I have read T-Net less and less over the last couple of years. That said, no one needs your permission or approval to view anything on the web, your replies are far more arrogant, lack self awareness, and just flat out ignorant. Enjoy watching your games at the cockroach this year :)

Have a great weekend!

So now I’m a coot fan aside from all your other false accusations? OK

I’m just going to leave you over in left field where you belong.

I do have one last suggestion for you. If you can do a better job than the Tnet staff please start your own Clemson sports website and show us all how it’s done. We’ll all be looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

of the team write articles about it. Articles are bound to be “fanboy” journalism. I don’t mean that in a negative way per se, but it just explains what you’re getting.

Dude, what in the #### is wrong with you, you're calling out one of our favorite T-Net writers. You're a free loader that donates nothing to help assure that our Clemson Tiger sports board is up and running daily, 365 days a year...

You're not from around here, are you? I'm almost 45 years old and have watched their bias since the 80's. Colin owned it, unlike most the ESPiN hacks. Yeah, it was a two edged sword that cut them twice but that does not take away from the reported slice.

Our onside to end the game was poetic justice from the previous year where we were down so many players and Saban still had to recover an onside to beat us. Then the super hilarious one was the $EC Network's ("Thinking Out Loud") live broadcast of the 2018 Championship. All the way down to them questioning Bama putting Hurts in because Bama needed to come back. It was the last time they would posses the ball in that game. Haha

1) Sure Cowherd is a provocateur, pro-west coast, and a jerk at times. He's also high IQ for a sports anchor. And he has grown up some and grown to like & respect Dabo and Clemson.
2) David Hood gets a pass on national story subtext - he's a busy man and no one is as close or accurate when it comes to Clemson on-the-field prep for games and player insights. Thanks David!
3) If ESPN did not like the original Dabo calling out of Cowherd, they also did not like Cowherd talking about how Fox sports guys were pulling for Clemson because Bama was growing stale ...

I agree with those Tnetters who believe it was a good interview for Dabo and good publicity for Clemson. The egotistical Cowherd was saying "my bad but I own it", and things have changed.

Go Tigers!

I was not a fan of his victim narrative either. it does not matter what ESPn says, he knows that, just go out and win and be humble about it.

Sometimes it feels good to say enough is enough, already. They have been forced to give us our dues and they still attempt to resist. Even as they need us to carry their ACC Network.

The best part of that classic for me, was when Dabo ripped off all the big time college teams that he had beat like, ask Bama if we are a fraud, ask OSU, ask Oklahoma if we are a fraud, that Colin Cowherd is the fraud. I want that on my tomb stone lol!!!!

Like I said, the interview was very helpful to our program. A fun loving, yet hard working coach was displayed for all. Trust me, Sabin and Co. would not fare so well in a long interview like that one asking all types of questions. Funny thing was Dabo didn't know Colin was in California. Colin rushed past that. That was Clemson positive time that money can't buy. Nice.

As far as the ESPN thing. I'm sure Colin has friends there. He clearly said he USED to work there, implying he had contacts who told him they didn't like what Dabo said after THAT game. Funny.
