Let all Tiger fans unite against this tool

The big eared troll has come out from under his bridge. Check this out:

Paul Finebaum believes Dabo Swinney's luster has 'worn off' at Clemson

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum did not hold back his criticism of Dabo Swinney after the Clemson Tigers lost in astonishing, 27-21, overtime fashion to the N.C. State Wolfpack on Saturday — in fact, he believes that the most recent loss should end Clemson’s mini-dynasty.

“The luster [has] worn off,” Finebaum said Monday on McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning. “I think it’s going to be fascinating to see what happens as a result. Clemson was like a comet seven or eight years ago. … I think two or three years from now, we’re going to see this moment being an inflection point, being somewhat of the end of what has been a mini-dynasty at Clemson.”

With the loss, Swinney and Clemson picked up their second loss in just four games, and fell to No. 25 in the AP Top-25 poll. With the demotion in the polls, Clemson’s 97-week streak in the AP top-25 — which was tied with Alabama for the longest current run in college football and the second-longest in the history of the AP poll (behind just Miami’s 137 in the 1980s) — was snapped.


“I don’t think Clemson will fall off overnight,” Finebaum said. “But watch the recruiting. If you’re one of those can’t-miss five-stars, and you have the predictable Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma and Ohio State on your list, are you more likely or less likely to go to Clemson in the future? I think you’re less likely.”

N.C. State forced Swinney’s quarterback, D.J. Uiagalelei, into a fourth-down incompletion to clinch the overtime win, and Uiagalelei’s inability to pull Clemson back into the game was consistent with his play all night. Uiagalelei managed to complete just 12 of his 27 passing attempts, throwing for 111 yards in the air, two passing touchdowns and one interception, finishing with a quarterback rating below 50.

Finebaum echoed these thoughts on ESPN’s College Football podcast, saying Clemson is a program that’s trending downwards. He believes Swinney’s team won’t have the same glow it used to with a generational quarterback, especially playing in an ACC conference that Finebaum said is far from exciting.

“Really, since the Georgia game a month ago, we’ve been talking about [Clemson’s] issues, especially on the offensive line, D.J. [Uiagalelei] being shaky and not being Trevor Lawrence and they kept willing their way through,” Finebaum said on ESPN. “You knew this was a trap game, but you kept thinking to yourself, ‘N.C. State — didn’t they just lose to Mississippi State, which has lost to pretty much everyone now?’ I mean, what an epic game.”

Clemson’s rushing attack was no more effective than Uiagalelei under center, as Uiagalelei happened to also be Swinney’s leading rusher with nine carries for 63 rushing yards. Freshman Will Shipley, who had 11 carries, only turned it into a meager 36 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown.

“They have come so close, so many times. Four or five years ago they had the game won until the final four or five seconds,” Finebaum said of Swinney and Clemson on ESPN. “I think the real question that has to be asked now is where does this Clemson program go? And I’m not suggesting the dynasty of the last six years is over. But if you’re a 17-year-old making a commitment, and you’ve got all the usual suspects, that program just doesn’t look the same today.”

Why worry about what this guy says. I watched his show about 3 years ago and saw nothing of substance. I'd rather waste my time doing something meaningful.

He is just an SEC tool. Besides he looks like a peni$ with ears. His name should be Richard Richardson. Then we could call him micro d**k.

Bill Connelly wrote two articles in the last 4 weeks saying Clemson was on the decline overall. It’s in their business model to promote certain teams while 2nd beating the rest. Dabo’s ROY bus is not a joke, even though it sounds funny. ESPN is ruining our beloved sport of college football and all the experts are their tools, so the best we can do is not watch ESPN.

It's all about trying to keep the 5 star recruits in the SEC by bashing Dabo. I won't lose any sleep over what Finebaum says. He hasn't been right since his boyfriend deformed his ears in a TN dorm room.

He makes it perfectly clear why he spews the crap that he does:

“I don’t think Clemson will fall off overnight,” Finebaum said. “But watch the recruiting. If you’re one of those can’t-miss five-stars, and you have the predictable Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma and Ohio State on your list, are you more likely or less likely to go to Clemson in the future? I think you’re less likely.”

Seeing Bama embarrassed and absolutely DESTROYED 44-16 still stings for Dumbo Ears.

would like to have been cool and act like Clemson really didn't matter to him one way or the other. But when we beat Bama the second time, he completely lost it and has basically been attackinb Dabo, the program and certain players since then. He claims that he and Dabo are friends, but I can assure you they are not. Notice Big Ears never has an interview with Dabo. The 2nd best coach in the game for the last seven years and he's a Bama boy and Paul got not one single interview. And he never will get one. Packer doesn't mention his name, but he talks about Finebaum plenty when describing the scum of the game.

The real loser is Finebaum because its easy to see Clemson got the best of him. Especially when we made fools of his prognosications that last few years.
