Paul Finebaum weighs in on the 'massive overreaction' of the Mike Bobo promotion
Paul Finebaum took the opportunity to react to Georgia promoting Mike Bobo to replace Todd Monken as offensive coordinator, and he first addressed the backlash associated with the move.
Finebaum made his regular Monday appearance on “McElroy and Cubelic In the morning” on WJOX in Birmingham, Alabama.
“I’m somewhat surprised by the massive overreaction of this move,” Finebaum said. “It’s as if Kirby Smart has abandoned his stewardship of this program and thrown the keys to Mike Bobo. I understand Bobo’s past, we all do. We’ve all followed him and he’s probably gotten a lot of blame that coordinators shouldn’t get, but get anyway. But ultimately, I don’t understand how this changes the trajectory.”
Finebaum added that he doesn’t understand how articles are being written that suggest that the Bobo move opens the door to Nick Saban and Alabama. Because he’s not convinced Alabama made the “right choice” at offensive coordinator.
“I think fans are looking for some way to find fault for Kirby Smart and that’s exactly what happened here,” he said.
The @SECNetwork‘s Paul @Finebaum stopped by @MacandCube to discuss if Mike Bobo taking over as @GeorgiaFootball‘s OC impacts his expectations for the Bulldogs this season.
