This doesn't feel like something new coming out of Paul Finebaum's mouth. He loves talking not only about who's going to replace Nick Saban at Alabama, but that he thinks it's Dabo Swinney. He was on WJOX’s The RoundTable this morning expressing those predictions once again...
“Who knows when Saban’s day will come, but I’m putting a couple of chips down on the longshot now,” Finebaum said. “It’s no longer off the board. It was off the board, but I just saw it. I felt it. You know? His wife grew up in Alabama. His family is from Alabama. That will be a fascinating gravitational pull when Alabama calls and says ‘OK, Dabo. It’s time to come home.’ I don’t know if it would be as absolute [a no] as I thought it would have been a couple of months ago.”
“I’m probably going to upset somebody, but it’s Alabama vs. Clemson,” Finebaum said. “It’s no contest if you’re thinking about ‘OK, where do I really want to be long-term?’ And I think because he’s from Alabama I’m going to keep pushing that ball up the hill. And the fact that he’s already won that championship [at Clemson]. I don’t think anybody wants to replace Saban — it’s an impossible task.
“But I will say this, before anyone says it’s impossible to replace Nick Saban, I think the only person who can replace Nick Saban is Dabo Swinney.”
