Finebaum was "mortified" at Auburn performance

ESPN analyst Paul Finebaum was confident that Auburn would roll over Clemson with his prediction earlier in the week before Clemson's 14-6 win in Death Valley.
Finebaum was on SportsCenter on Sunday morning and discussed the ACC-SEC battle.
"I think they’re in trouble," Finebaum said about Auburn. "I'm not quite as optimistic as you are [Booger McFarland]. You may be taking pixie dust for breakfast, but I’m not. I was mortified by the performance. I just didn’t understand it. Gus Malzahn, after talking about bringing Chip Lindsey in was Gus Malzahn. And that’s a problem because Auburn fans like Gus Malzahn as a head coach, they don’t like him as the offensive coordinator. To me, it looked very similar. This a team that has to go to LSU in a couple of weeks and has to deal with Georgia and Alabama. The defensive line may be great, by the way, Clemson’s defensive lineman may have made Stidham look stupid. It’s not Auburn's defense that is the problem. It’s the same old problem - red zone mistakes. We've been watching this for last four years under Gus Malzahn."
Mr. Finebaum didn't mention that he picked Auburn in the upset as he was too busy throwing Malzahn under the bus for the 8 point loss to the defending National Champions.
