My Finebaum appearance

KconnorrileyKconnorriley Posts: 150 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

So I went on the Paul Finebaum show yesterday (starts at the 12 minute mark). It was really cool as someone who has listened to the show a lot over the years. I know he's not the most popular figure with everyone but as someone who is still relatively new to all this I did enjoy the experience.

As far as what I said regarding beating Alabama, Paul Finebaum is really good at what he does and getting reporters and media types to give him an answer he's looking for. He pushed Kirby and a few weeks ago on the Georgia-Alabama dynamic this year and of course Kirby handled it way better than I did.)


Clearly winning a national championship is very important to this program. I've written that plenty of times. I said as much on the show.

I also do think that beating Alabama is really important to a lot of people. It's important to me as someone who knows a lot of Alabama fans. The larger point I wanted to make(and did make but they're not going to put that in a tweet) is that if Georgia beats Alabama but doesn't win a national title, it can still be a successful season.

A lot of people disagree and that's ok. I realize it's not a great take to have. Winning a championship is still the end goal. I don't think it should result in me being called an idiot and things of that nature but I suppose that just comes with the platform.

Anyway, thanks for reading and following dawgnation. I'm far from perfect and I know I have to get better. But I'm trying ringo, I'm trying real hard.

    @Kconnorriley Got stuff here , i listened and you did well for your first go around

    The good news is that you gave a pretty hot take on something that is going to give finebaum some extra clicks and discussion. That has to help with notoriety and getting back on the show at some point.

    Now with that said, come on mannnnn! The natty is the highest priority. If we play LSU in the championship and then dont see bama in the playoff then that doesnt make the natty any less sweet for me.

    To each their own though. I ain't mad at you like the Twitter warriors seem to be (and who honestly cares what they have to say anyway?)

    Good job on the show and keep it up.

    Not bad for a rookie.

    I don't always agree with you, but that would make for boring discussion. I think your good at your job with alot of time to get better. Here's hoping you do your growing with us.

    Many years ago an old columnist for the Atlanta Journal (pre AJC) told me, " If I'm not making at least half the readers mad then we're not selling enough papers".

    and always remember,

    Keep up the good work and the good work will keep you up.

    @Kconnorriley , kudos for walking into the wolves’ den dressed as a sheep. I see your point, but I want to see the Dawgs win a title. If it goes through Bama, great. But it might not. If it doesn’t, we’ll still have to hear chirping from Bama fans, but at least we’ll have a ring to show for it.

    By the way, thank you for making the point about how even the talent is between the three teams. I completely agree. From a talent standpoint, we don’t have to get there, we are there. Frankly, I think the key to success this year is between Kirby Smart’s ears.

    Not mad at all about your FB appearance. You do a good job everyday with BA and much appreciated. No way I could talk that much publicly and not insert foot. Now please watch this short presentation:
