|Clemson Coach Holds Championship Trophy|
“Clemson’s a fraud. Clemson’s going to get their ears boxed by whoever they play,” Cowherd said. “I don’t buy into Clemson. They’re the New York Giants of college football. I don’t care what their record is.”
Obviously, Clemson appeared to be anything but a fraud during last night’s 35-31 win over top-ranked Alabama. But Swinney, who evidently either listened to Cowherd’s remarks or was told about them, made sure to take time out of his post-game celebration to publicly call out the sports-radio host in a big way.
“The guy that called us a fraud. … Was the name Colin Cowherd?” Swinney said. “Ask Alabama if we're a fraud. Ask Ohio State if we're a fraud. Ask Oklahoma if we're a fraud. The only fraud is that guy, because he didn't do his homework. I hope y'all print that.”
The National Championship win was the second title in the history of the program. It was Clemson's first since winning it all in 1981.
