Paul Finebaum doesn't believe the upcoming college football season will be played
Paul Finebaum has given up hope that the upcoming college football season can be played.
The good news is he doesn’t have any power in the matter but when it comes to platforms, the SEC Network host arguably has the biggest one in college football and his recent comments on ESPN radio program “Golic and Wingo” were pretty damning.
Here’s Finebaum’s response when he was asked if the upcoming college football season would be played.
“I don’t. I keep reading comments from athletic directors about games — I saw the AD at Alabama today say, well, you know, the game with Southern Cal we’re still planning on it,” Finebaum said on the show. “I mean, why don’t why are they trying to kid us? The college football season is slipping away by the hour. What’s happening in college football right now is essentially a game of 1,000 cuts. Excuse me, this is a death by 1,000 cuts. I mean, what are we talking about here any longer? I’ve lost track and you know, it’s a game of dueling statements. You have conference after conference putting out the boilerplate statements.
“The worst being the one by the NCAA last night. I mean, you could get a third-grader in Madison, Wisconsin and have come up with a more cogent, intellectual message about where we are in college athletics than the one that the NCAA, the governing body of the sport put out last night. And by putting that statement out, they were essentially saying, we have no earthly idea what’s going on. We don’t have any control over it. It is the Wild Wild West. So, have at it. You know, we still can still disseminate some meaningless statements, but we have no more control than that.”
Based on his comments, Finebaum appears tired of talking about the subject and is willing to call out the lack of leadership in college sports that led us to this result.
Let’s all hope he’s dead wrong about his prediction.
