Paul Finebaum Names The Best Program In College Football

Paul Finebaum makes comments about roy Williams.


The pervasiveness of cheating in college football wasn't the only thing Paul Finebaum talked about during his Monday appearance on "McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning." The ESPN personality also gave his thoughts on who the best program in the country is.

And fresh off a national championship and 15 players selected in the 2022 NFL draft; Finebaum believes Georgia holds the crown.

What Thursday really was, ended up being the final cherry on top of the cake for Kirby Smart and Georgia. I mean, it was a defining moment for Georgia's program — as the national championship was — but this confirmed it. ... It's remarkable and I think, now, hopefully, people will give Kirby Smart the credit that he deserves as a builder and as a developer — and, obviously, as a head coach.

Finebaum also noted players such as Justin Fields, Cade May and Jermaine Johnson III that transferred out of Athens; but still walked through those turnstiles at one point.

It's hard to argue, after this past weekend, that Georgia doesn't have the best overall program in the country — and I'm not talking about a moment in time, the winner of the championship. Too often, we do that. I'm talking about — look at who has the best program in college football right now. You can make an argument it's the University of Georgia.

It's been an outstanding run for Kirby Smart since taking over at Georgia.

And to think 15 players could get drafted and you still return as the top program in college football? Incredible.
