Paul Finebaum Offers Odd Take On Oklahoma, Alabama

Paul Finebaum offers an odd take on Oklahoma and Alabama during a recent interview.

Following this weekend’s big game between LSU and Alabama, many wondered what the implications would be for the rankings.

Surely enough LSU finished No. 1 on Tuesday night whereas Alabama slid all the way to No. 5 – a two spot drop from where the Crimson Tide were last week.

Prior to the rankings being released, Finebaum offered some strong words regarding where Oklahoma and Alabama stand.

While he believes that Nick Saban’s bunch is “unequivocally” one of the four best college football teams in the nation, he is not as impressed by the Sooners.

“Everyone is talking about Alabama getting the nod,” he said. “But they have proven it when it counts. What has Oklahoma done with it?”

One of the big knocks on Alabama this year has been that they have not beaten anyone of note. Their biggest victory came versus a No. 24  ranked Texas A&M squad that, in retrospect, is not particularly solid.

Oklahoma meanwhile has an admittedly worse loss on their resume in Kansas State, but they also have a much more impressive win in Texas.

The same Texas squad, mind you, that arguably put up a better fight against LSU than Alabama did.

Is Finebaum’s take on Alabama vs Oklahoma a fair one?

That is up to each individual college football fan to decide on their own.
