Podcast: Finebaum's click bait, Braves win WS, Last Dance review

By Bo Wilson Sports Editor

ESPN's Paul Finebaum is creating headlines throughout the college football landscape. In particular, between UGA's Kirby Smart and Clemson's Dabo Swinney. 

Finebaum says Smart took a shot at Swinney during a recent interview about recruiting. We think differently than Finebaum does. 

Below is what Smart said on Finebaum's show.

“It’s a great sales pitch but what gets me, Paul, you probably – well, let me rephrase that – you probably would believe it, but you wouldn’t believe what some coaches outside our conference tell kids,” Smart said to Finebaum. “They’ll sell to a kid it’s better to not go to the SEC because it’s too tough. It’s too competitive, it’s too physical, you might get beat up, you might get banged up you might not have as good a career there that you go somewhere else. “Well, that’s not the way the NFL GMs are looking at it, and that’s not the way the NFL coaches are looking at it. They want to take kids that want to compete at the highest level they want to go play in the big-time matchups, and that’s what the kids want. They want to go play in the biggest games in the biggest places. And that’s what they aspire to do. So, for a coach and maybe another conference the sale that, ‘Hey, it might be a little easier path to come over here and go this way.’ No, it just speaks volumes, you want kids to be able to see through that.”

On this week's show, we discuss the opinions of Finebaum and add our own. We also review The Last Dance, the docuseries about the 1998 Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan and reminisce about the 1995 Atlanta Braves.
