Paul Finebaum, who is largely considered the voice of
reason controversy within SEC country, seems to have promised an Auburn fan and show caller a trip to Pasadena should the Tigers get to the big game.
Joshua Smitherman called into the Paul Finebaum show at some point during the season and asked Finebaum if a one-loss SEC Champion Auburn team, which seemed all but out of the national picture, could jump an undefeated Oregon and get into the national championship with wins over an undefeated Alabama and then-undefeated Missouri. Finebaum said that wouldn’t happen, but then he added he would take him to Pasadena if the Tigers ‘do all of that’.

Here are Finebaum’s comments, and you can hear the call below:
“I’ll make you this promise, though, Josh. And I shouldn’t be doing this, but if Auburn does all that and gets into the national championship game, I’ll take you to Pasadena. Okay?
Finebaum adds, “You’re going with me to Pasadena.”
Josh responds that that would be great, and he adds that he’ll hold him to it. However, Josh now says that Finebaum has backed out of the deal.
