Note to Paul Finebaum

As you prepare to genuflect in the nude to the soon-to-be-erected statue of the most brilliant man to ever coach a down in college football, perhaps you consider that he’s the same genius who opted for Duante Culpepper over Drew Brees when he had the choice.

    Why are you giving him free publicity?


  2. Saban was told by Miami’s doctors that Brees’s shoulder wasn’t healthy. Unless you’re going to criticize Saban for not having a medical degree so he could contradict that conclusion, you can’t blame him for the decision to go for Culpepper.

    Not to defend the F-baum too mightily here (I live in Alabama, and his column is one of the things I check on once a week; I know, I’m a glutton for punishment), but he hit Saban kind of low this week.

    Recapping recruiting, Saban said something about thinking the word “commitment” meant something other than it seems to mean to recruits who bailed on him at the last minute. F-Baum responded in his article, “I don’t think LSU, Michigan State, Miami, or Toledo has your back on that one, Coach Saban”.

    When I was thinking he’d string together a decent column, he crapped all over UGA at the end saying CMR was rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic while the fat lady was warming up. Oh, well. His callers, though, are bigger jokes than he is.
