Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney made headlines on Tuesday by throwing some shade at Alabama, South Carolina and most teams on the Crimson Tide's schedule last season...

Swinney was asked by 247Sports this week about The Citadel's 27-24 overtime win vs. Wake Forest in week 3 and said that the Bulldogs were Alabama's toughest opponent in 2018 before facing Georgia in the SEC Championship.

He also added that the Citadel beat South Carolina...


The Citadel beat South Carolina back in 2015, the year that Steve Spurrier retired during the season.

And as far as The Citadel vs. Alabama, it sounds like Swinney is trying to say that The Bulldogs were a tougher opponent for Crimson Tide than Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas A&M, LSU, Mississippi State, and Auburn... which doesn't make a lot of sense.

His comment here seems more pointed toward the rest of the SEC than toward Bama.

He is going to regret it if Alabama plays them again.

There's a big difference in telling the truth and throwing shade

The hack that wrote it post the quote under his story but gets the team wrong and Dabo said probably. He did not include that either. Editor please.

If that was Dabo trying to "throw shade", then he isn't very good at it.

This is throwing shade? He’s not wrong but it’s not like he’s insulting anyone either

“Threw some shade” is one of my top ten most hated pop slang phrases

He's right. Bama blew out all those other teams.

Arkansas was a tougher opponent. LSU was a tougher opponent. A&M was a tougher opponent. Going by the scoreboard alone is foolish and provincial.
