Finebaum has fond memories of the Classic City.
… Paul Finebaum doesn’t think Georgia fans care enough.
“I’ve always criticized Georgia fans because I don’t think they’re angry enough,” he said. “We got into this debate a couple years ago where I was asking the question, Georgia is coming off a mediocre year and the fans are still defending coach Richt I was like, ‘Georgia fans aren’t like Alabama fans. Alabama fans were ready to fire Nick Saban after losing one game.’ Georgia fans I think are a little more cerebral. They appreciate who Mark Richt is.”
But he does know first-hand that Georgia fans like to go crazy.
“My last time here I was doing a live shot for a local TV station in Birmingham in 2008, when GameDay was here and Georgia went down 31-0 after being ranked No.1 in the country, and right in the middle of it a lovely frat boy poured a beer can over my head,” Finebaum said. “I’m still waiting for somebody to reimburse me for that sport coat.”
I’d rather reimburse the fan for the beer, thanks.
