Clemson’s football program is stomping all over Alabama these days, and their latest move is extremely cocky.

Just how cocky are we talking here? Well, the Tigers have a tombstone honoring beating Alabama 44-16 in the 2019 national title game with the words “best ever” on it. (RELATED: Clemson Beats Alabama For National Title)

My friends, I’m all in on this movement. Getting tombstones to remember times you dominated things is awesome.

Dabo Swinney is known as a humble dude, but this is about as arrogant as it gets. I’m not saying I don’t like it. I love it. It’s awesome.

It’s not really in his character, but who gives a damn? This tombstone is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.

I hope all major college football programs follow this example. They should have a dedicated graveyard near the stadium just full of headstones commemorating big wins.

Hell, I’m ready to make some calls right now and write a check in order to get one in Madison for the Badgers. Of course, after our pathetic season last year, there wouldn’t exactly be many headstones, but that’s a conversation for another time.

As for Clemson, thank you for making my day. Once again, Dabo Swinney has managed to dominate the headlines for all the correct reasons.
