just brutal. Saw a little of the Finebaum show today and we have become a joke. They had a lsit of 10 things that would happen before Arkansas beats Bama things such as aliens coming to earth, Bret Bielema making a hole-in-one, etc.
They also said that Bama had a 98.1% chance of beating Arkansas. Laura Rutledge asked Finebaum if he had ever seen a percentage so high for an SEC team vs SEC team and Finebaum snickered “No”.
I remember watching the 52-0 beatdown in 2013 and thinking in a few years from now after Bielema has had time to recruit a few OL classes we’ll physically be able to play with Bama. They may still beat Arkansas but the days of it being a complete physical mismatch on the lines of scrimmage are over. We actually played them well in 2014 and 2015.
Well…five years in to the " we’ll build our program from the inside out" regime taking over we are very likely going to be beaten on the lines of scrimmage as bad or worse than we were that first year.
Sad that our program is basically back to where it was when Bielema took over and the high water mark was a 7-5 season and a Liberty Bowl win over a K State team with a 4th string QB.
Paul Finebaum will do whatever he can to endear himself to Alabama fan base. Those are his people. I wouldn’t put too much stock into him poking fun at someone or something; his shots typically are taken at those who are down.
Also, Alabama has a 90-something percent chance to beat just about any team it plays.
Paul Finebaum is a Tennessee grad, but an Alabama shill. He loves the Tide…weird, but true.
He spoke to the Little Rock Touchdown Club several years ago and was very rude to one of the guests who asked him a question during the Q and A part of the program. It was embarrassing to me and the other people there. It was disparaging to the people of Arkansas and to the guy who asked him the question. I have not liked him since.
