One of the most powerful SEC voices does not have high praise for what's going on in Gainesville right now.
Paul Finebaum (noted Alabama cheerleader) has called out the Florida program for being nothing more than average...
And what makes that claim even worse is that he says the fans are unaware of how irrelevant they've become to the college football world @ large.
“Alabama went through this period of 15 or 20 years when almost everything that could go wrong, did go wrong,” Finebaum said during a radio appearance on WJOX, (first transcribed by Saturday Down South). "However, it didn’t stop the fans, and Cole, you played during this era, but no matter what, you're doing a show in June and you know Alabama is going to have a losing season, or go 6-6, and you go to the phone lines and it's all of people saying ‘Alabama is going to win a national championship.’ That’s how Florida fans are. They cannot accept that they are really a mediocre program right now.”
These comments come at the same time as the latest eyebrow raising moment for Florida. They just lost a highly touted recruit to Miami and to make matters even worse for Florida, his agency buried the Gators on his way down south. (Story below)
as the Gator program is again under scrutiny for losing a top QB recruit to the Miami Hurricanes, and getting buried in the process. Billy Napier is tasked with turning this ship around. Billy, of course, was hired from Louisiana after Dan Mullen was relieved of his duties at the end of the 2021 season. Napier spent four seasons at Louisiana and went 40-12 overall.
