Paul Finebaum Says There Is 'Bias Against Alabama' For The Playoff This Year
© Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
ESPN’s Paul Finebaum thinks Alabama is not only in great shape to make the CFB Playoff, but also says there's a bias against the Crimson Tide this year...
quote:

“In my mind, they are in great shape. Now again, you have to be careful here because there is a tremendous amount of bias against Alabama by people in the media. Yeah, I said it. You read various columns and some people have Alabama No. 7 or No. 8, No. 6 – right now, I don’t know how you can objectively say that. To me, Alabama looks like one of the four or five best teams in the country. You start doing comparison tests. Somebody this morning put Oklahoma ahead of them – I mean are you out of your mind? Oklahoma is not better than Alabama.”

"Paul Finebaum Says There Is 'Bias Against Alabama' For The Playoff This Year". Possibly so, but in the immortal (and immoral) words of Hillary, "What difference does it make". Given all the correctly called penalties in the AU game, we are out bias against us, or not. There is blaming bias or officiating.

There is NO blaming bias or officiating.

I hope Bama loses to Auburn just to make this a-hole look like an asshat in the national media

That very well could happen that’s why I wish everyone that’s freaking out about Bama getting in would relax and enjoy your Thanksgiving. This is all probably a moot point after Saturday.

My God ! Please make him stop. Why do they give a damn Bama fan a national stage????

He went to Tenn?! He crapped on Bama when Auburn was waxing Bama for 7 straight in the early and mid 2000s. He rides whatever team is hot so calm down little buddy.

It must be nice to have a propaganda spinner on payroll that works at ESPN to help you recruit and garner sympathy when you have a rough season. Just a company man with an agenda (just like Herbie)defending and strategizing the victim vote for the school that ALWAYS gets the benefit of the doubt (with the officials, the SEC office, and the permanent east opponent). For no other reason they should miss the playoff - Their PITIFUL schedule. No excuse. No sympathy. Go away Finebaum - Alabama parasite.

Pitiful schedule? LSU, Auburn, aTm...not the strongest slate ever but not pitiful, Clemson is pitiful. Could barely beat UNC. Bama, aside from the LSU game, took care of business against everyone else they played. Didn't once play down to shitty teams like Clemson, Oklahoma, Baylor, UGA, Utah did...some more than once.

If this Bama team was so bad, you would think that LSU fans would be anxious to play them again in the playoffs and make it a steak at 2 in a row. But no, they keep lying to themselves about how Bama isn’t a top 4 team, even before Tua was hurt

You ignorant Bama freak...LSU fans would love to play Bama again.

@xGeauxLSUx - Cool. As a Bama fan, I'd gladly play LSU again. You may get your chance.

Just don't feel like we should have to play them after we play an extra game and they get the weekend off. In most sports the better team gets the Bye.

I don't want to hear this shite. Alabama had media bias in their favor for YEARS. The only team worth a damn that they have played is LSU and LSU dominated them for 3 quarters. Finebaum is out of his fricking mind.

Man, Bama MUST be a top 4 team then to get "DOMINATED" by LSU and only lose by 5. Clearly they're getting in now...

Finebaum [DISNEY CLOWN] - what happened to LSU being ranked #2 after Ohio State's win against Penn State? #whyisfinebaumstillonESPN

I have accepted the fact that a one-loss Alabama team will always be in the Four Team Playoff system. I also believe that this "Eye Test" criterion was invented SPECIFICALLY to put Alabama in the playoffs, because it is a completely subjective criterion and there's no way to objectively refute the Committee's decision that Alabama wins the "Eye Test" criterion.

Dude is just a Bama shill. Pathetic.

There is a crap ton of Bama fatigue out there this is a fact. Maybe if O and LSU goes on a similar run y’all will get a taste of the national animus.
Reply2 months
Nah, people find LSU and O very appealing. Not a plastic, emotionless automaton who spits out 'the process'. And then there is the lunatic, tree killing, sex criminal, tantrum throwing, redneck fan base. It isn't Bama fatigue, it's Bama nausea. O is one of us, not a hired shill who actually despises the people he works for.

Um, I don't know how to say this politely - but your "Bama fatigue" is a joke. Thats like playing the race card. So lazy. I have no sympathy for you, your fans or your team. Your schedule is an insult to college football and you almost got away with it this year. Saban thought he could "arrogance" his way in again with that piss poor schedule. I hope they don't fall for it, because y'all don't deserve to be there this year - just like 2011. You didn't belong in that game either. So, forgive me for not taking that garbage excuse seriously.

hey Stunna, 21-0 is a real good indication that Alabama did indeed deserve to be there in 2011 at least more than LSU did.
