SEC Network's Paul Finebaum was on the 'The RoundTable' on WJOX 94.5 FM on Monday and discussed several topics including the heated rivalry between Clemson and South Carolina.
Finebaum understands the Gamecocks haven't enjoyed watching the Tigers stockpile National Championship hardware.
“The difference is that South Carolina, under that other guy Steve Spurrier who Carolina fans want to trash, had won five straight over Dabo Swinney," Finebaum said. "We were talking about Clemsoning and the program teetering. And now that Swinney is going for sixth straight, it has made Gamecock Nation fraught with jealousy and pure hatred for Clemson. It’s stunning to watch that and they can’t believe it."
Finebaum admits that Clemson has been pretty dominant in football.
"You knew Alabama would be really good, but no one expected Clemson to be this good and dominate like they have with an assist from Florida State. They’re (Gamecocks) beside themselves and hanging on to Will Muschamp because they see him as the hope. But if this season goes bust and there is a good chance it will with the schedule, then next season goes do or die for him."
