Paul Finebaum declares Georgia Alabama, SEC football is ‘significantly ahead’

Georgia is overtaking competition in the SEC as college football’s new dominant program, according to Paul Finebaum, who points to the Bulldogs’ back-to-back national championships and superior talent advantage as key factors in the Bulldogs’ rise. Finebaum explained further this week McElroy and Cubelic.

“All of a sudden it seems like yesterday Alabama was No. 1 in the country and ‘Bama rode in preseason and now, Kirby Smart aiming for a three-peat,” Finebaum said. “Things can change so quickly. I think whether it’s reality or not, the perception out there is Nick Saban struggles upstream to stay afloat. I’m not sure if these are correct, but in reality, whether that’s true or not is perception out there. Kirby Smart is just another national championship away from a three-peat.

“This has never been done before, so enjoy getting that out of your mouth because in the real world — not Vegas — that’s probably not going to happen.”

Smart’s recruiting skills are one of the reasons the Bulldogs are the nation’s new It program.
