Longtime ESPN analyst Paul Finebaum, a big supporter of the SEC, is not happy with what SEC announcer Gary Danielson said about Neyland Stadium this week. Danielson said that Neyland Stadium is “just about the same” as the SEC's other stadiums. Finebaum then went off...
“There’s kind of an unwritten rule if you’re not so full of hubris and arrogance and think you know everything,” Finebaum said. “It’s not like Gary was stopped at the Atlanta airport and said, “What stadium do you think?” He was being interviewed by a reporter who works in Knoxville for the Knoxville News-Sentinel group and he’s coming to Knoxville. So only Gary could stick his foot in his mouth by not praising the greatest stadium in college football, Neyland Stadium! That’s the part I don’t understand.”
“Next year when he’s doing the Big Ten Saturday afternoon Game of the Week when it’s Minnesota at Purdue, and he’s in a cornfield in West Lafayette, he’s going to have to say, ‘This is like any other Big Ten stadium,'” Finebaum said. “… I may never get over that interview you did with Gary Danielson.”
