Paul Finebaum: "The ACC outside of Clemson is a clown show"

ESPN's Chris Low wrote in his latest schedule notes article that Clemson has been 'owning the SEC' with all of the recent victories including two out of three National Championship titles against SEC power Alabama.

“For the second straight season, Clemson has two nonconference games against SEC foes -- Texas A&M at home and South Carolina on the road. Dabo Swinney is 13-5 against SEC teams since the start of the 2012 season, which includes five wins over South Carolina, three wins over Auburn, two wins over Alabama and wins over Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M.”

SEC Network Paul Finebaum told AL.com on Tuesday that the ACC is overrated besides Clemson and tried to discredit some of Swinney's biggest wins.

“It’s a completely misleading and outrageous proposition,” he said. “A preponderance of those wins from the gaudy statistic are against one school - South Carolina, which has been in transition.”

“A more intellectual way of approaching this would be to ponder what the record would be if Clemson had to play an SEC schedule with road games at Alabama and LSU opposed to Wake Forest and Boston College."

Finebaum went full Finebaum calling out the majority of the ACC programs a bunch of clowns.

“Dabo is 13-5 against SEC teams. Saban is 57-5. Which is more impressive? The SEC is the toughest conference in football. The ACC - outside of Clemson - is a clown show.”

Sounds like Finebaum isn't patiently waiting for the new ACC Network channel starting up on August 22.
