    Good for him...get it while you can...as much as you can...

    Maybe this will open up a spot at ESPN for Lance from Jasper.

    Leverage for new SECN contract. Paul can't survive without suckling at Nick's teat, DTs would kill him.

    For the life of me I don’t understand this business model, fox sports outbids ESPN for their most obnoxious ‘talent’ and then they’re never heard from again.

    I will laugh if this happens watching finebaum trying to schill for the big ten after all these years of kissing Bamas and to a lesser extent the rest of the secs ass

    Hate to see Paul go. Paul Finebaum is one of our Southern traditions. Like em or hate him you will not find western, midwestern, or Neastern areas that have anything matching a show with popularity like this. Just another piece of that "southern passion" that makes football in the South what it is.

    I will say there are some areas in Texas with that same passion.

    He is the leader of all the SEC schools on the anti Florida Gator crusade. Anytime he can take a shot at us he will. Wish he would go to Premier Football league TV in Great Britain.
    NEVER a dude with such little talent grow to where he is . And his trailer trash groupies will follow him to hell.

    Please go to the big 10 and disappear forever. Worst show in sports history. I can't believe the SEC network can't come up with something better. Considering all the former players and coaches, they could really come up with something special if they wanted to.

    He plays to every bad stereotype of the south.
    Big 10 can have him.

    Watching his show is like shopping at Sears,Wal-Mart, or Winn Dixie. Who even does that anymore?

    lol What is wrong with Sears? I bought my Kenmore washer and dryer there. Wal-Mart sucks and Winn Dixie I don’t ever see.

  18. Maybe the Big Ten network can also take Danny Kanell, so I do not have to hear him on Sirius XM radio.

    I dont understand the Finebaum interest. I don’t really care about someone’s opinion on football who has never played a down of football in their life.

    In the few shows I’ve watched, he doesn’t seem to have any connections to programs except maybe bama.

    His guests are right out of an old Jerry Springer/Ricky Lake show. Good riddance (hopefully). I would love to have a show replace him with someone more knowledgeable of the game of football and more connections to other programs.
