Dan Wolken posits that “Paul Finebaum’s potential departure is biggest storyline in the SEC as media day nears”.
And, yes, he’s being serious.

Does anyone really think PAWWL is going to leave the SECN for the B1GN or anywhere else? If he did, would anyone other than his regular callers really care?

Paul has bubbled to the surface of national consciousness, a small, insular segment of the SEC fan base for all to ridicule and use as a broad brush to stereotype the entire region. Entertaining? Perhaps if you are into train wrecks and Jerry Springer fights I guess.
Sure, the media landscape now is turning more bland and corporate (insert Tony Barnhart comment here), but if this is the only true alternative, then I’ll pass, thanks.
Well said. I’d take Barnhart all day any day over this clown.
Nobody ever wants to talk about Finebaum’s first gig on television:
I’m starting to think there’s something wrong with me because I quit watching Finebum because of those stupid everyday callers. They ask his opinion about football when he seems clueless about the game but he does get into the weeds with the politics of the SEC better than anyone.
I’ll watch some more in the fall, but the callers are by far the worst part of the show, IMHO..
Speaking of …
Maybe the World Wide Woke Leader doesn’t covet Pawwwwwwwwwl’s demographic. I guess OCD rednecks just don’t buy enough cool stuff.
Something tells me everything will work out just fine for Finebaum, after all his agent is Jimmy Sexton.
Jesus. Is there anyone in college football he is not the agent for?
Jimmy Sexton doesn’t represent The Georgia Way, as it would conflict with his representation of The Tuscaloosa Way.
Leverage, and if he does leave, he better not take Laura with him.
Listening to Finebaum on beach today….just had a GREAT interview with Mohammad Massaquoi.
I tried really hard to care less about the details of Finebaum’s employment.
Finebaum is the Kim Kardashian of CFB journalism (and yes, I realize I’m stretching that term to its breaking point). Famous for being famous.
But…will Timmy Tears still BE SCREAMING without Paul?
