I won't get too vulgar, but I'm willing to bet Finebaum would do un-natural things to Saban if he was offered the opportunity.

"Would do?" Insert "has done" in that sentence and I agree! :jester:

Cannot wait to see how ESPN "molds" him into changing his perspective. Being based in Charlotte, he will HAVE to show some ACC love as well. I predict that the color "green" will overtake the Crimson and White AND in pretty short order.

What a strange acting fellow. Even on TV he acted as if he didn't care what was being said, just trying to get HIS thought heard, very similar to the way he would hang up on callers who didn't agree with him....

He will use back handed compliments to other teams by comparing them to Alabama. i.e. "You know, of all the teams in the ACC......Florida State has the best shot at being close to as good as Alabama".

If given the chance Bamers would probably rather spend the day with Saban than (insert religious figure here)

But he is a VOL, not a Bammer, just another of thousands jumping on that wagon. Did he do "unnatural things" to Shula? I think not... he is a JOKE.
