Paul Finebaum explains why Saturday's Iron Bowl was not as significant as the Kick Six
Paul Finebaum doesn’t think that Saturday night’s crazy finish in the Iron Bowl was as significant as the Kick Six 10 years ago.
Finebaum was certainly impressed by Jalen Milroe’s fantastic throw to Isaiah Bond, but he wasn’t surprised by it.
“I don’t wanna be that guy, but I really wasn’t even surprised,” Finebaum said on the Matt Barrie Show on Sunday. “Because I saw it 2 years ago, almost identical. 2 years ago, they were playing a far inferior Auburn team and they were 23-point favorites. As the play developed, I was screaming, why are they rushing 2 people and they got what they deserved. It was a brilliant throw by the most maliante quarterback of the first 2 weeks of the football season, Jalen Milroe, and it was justice.”
Finebaum doesn’t think it was as significant as the Kick Six, because there wasn’t nearly as much at stake in the game.
“I don’t think it’s quite a significant as the Kick Six for one reason,” Finebaum said. “The Kick Six was a 1 vs. 4 matchup. The winner of the game ended up playing for the national championship. Auburn is limping into a bowl game. But it was just so amazing to watch.”
