This is great! Paul Finebaum’s anti-FSU bias on display again after latest snub of Jimbo Fisher http://gridironnow.com/paul-finebaums-anti-fsu-bias-display-latest-snub-jimbo-fisher/ Florida State and Jimbo Fisher are no strangers to SEC pundits throwing shade their way. ESPN personality Paul Finebaum is one of the most notable figures with an anti-Seminoles bias, which helps explain why he has been absent from his radio show three years in a row during Fisher’s annual day-long, summer round of interviews across ESPN’s platforms. Fisher visited on July 26, appearing on multiple programs.

Peter Burns filled in. Considering Finebaum’s track record, it’s becoming more and more difficult to believe the absences are mere coincidence and not a direct snub of Fisher and Florida State. Finebaum has been adamant in the past regarding his disapproval of Jameis Winston’s behavior as Seminole, and also how he feels Fisher mishandled it. Finebaum even had Bobby Bowden on his show and baited him into saying how Winston was an embarrassment to the program. Then, Finebaum tweeted a misleading portion of the quote portraying it in the worst way possible for Winston. "I think it's a consensus among FSU fans and boosters that he was an embarrassment to the University" – Bobby Bowden on Jameis Winston — Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) May 12, 2015 Not only did Finebaum take the quote out of context, but he took out a portion of Bowden’s remark. Not only did Finebaum take the quote out of context, but he took out a portion of Bowden’s remark. Here’s the full text of Bowden’s comment, which, when read in the folksy demeanor with which Bowden speaks, takes on a completely different tone from Finebaum’s tweet: “Well, I think it’s a consensus among Florida State fans and boosters that he was an embarrassment in a lot of ways to the university. He won a lot of ball games. Probably one of the best football players that ever attended Florida State, but he hurt himself off the field. The good news is that he’s young enough to get over that, you know. But he’s got to do that. He just can’t make those junior high school decisions that he made when he was in college.” Need more evidence? Finebaum, a Tennessee alumnus, defended his alma mater and Butch Jones during a recent string of sexual assault cases while continuing to slam FSU. “I do think there was a culture at Florida State that stemmed from the top down,” Finebaum said. “If that’s the case at Tennessee, then we’ll find out. I don’t think it is.” And more. Florida State beating Auburn for the 2013 national championship also apparently left a bad taste in Finebaum’s mouth that he hasn’t gotten rid of. He is rooting against the Seminoles not only in football, but in other sports as well. He once displayed his happiness after an Auburn softball win over the Seminoles. Auburn beats Florida State. Has a nice ring. — Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) June 6, 2016 I defy you to find another Finebaum tweet remarking on college softball, and rare are the tweets where he outright roots for one school against another in a game. That’s some coincidence. After the most recent slight from Finebaum, Florida State fans took to social media to express their outrage. Wait is finebaum really not there again today? Third time now he's ducked Jimbo… — Melina Myers (@melinasphotos) July 25, 2017 Finebaum ducks Jimbo in person yet again. Third year in a row? https://t.co/q1nVdLwfuq — Tomahawk Nation (@Tomahawknation) July 25, 2017 Paul Finebaum when he realizes that Jimbo is on ESPN's campus pic.twitter.com/yqV5BlVe42 — Dakota Moyer (@DakMoyer) July 25, 2017 Finebaum’s relationship with the Fisher and the Seminoles seems like it is long past mending.
