Paul Finebaum calls Dabo Swinney a lousy loser: 'They're done for the season'
Paul Finebaum never seems to hold back when it comes to Clemson coach Dabo Swinney. The latest comments came after Clemson lost to N.C. State on Saturday.
“Dabo Swinney, for all of his charm, is a pretty lousy loser,” Finebaum said on the ESPN College Football Podcast. “Nobody wants to hear his wine, nobody really wants to hear him say whatever he says. He’s a good winner — well, he’s not even a good winner. But he’s a terrible loser.”
For Finebaum, the struggles at Clemson begin at one position.
“I really do think it starts at the offensive line position,” Finebaum said of Swinney’s struggles. “I heard Dabo a month ago saying, ‘we are much better at the offensive line. I really like this offensive line.’ If he likes that offensive line, he likes bad football because they can’t block anything. They’re done for the season; it doesn’t matter who’s left.”
Clemson returns to action next week against Boston College on homecoming, before its bye week.
