Meet The Press Moderator Chuck Todd Calls Out Paul Finebaum On Twitter For Bashing Miami

Meet the Press and Paul Finebaum are not typically in the same headline, but that wasn't the case Tuesday night. 

ESPN's Finebaum spent the better part of the afternoon bashing Miami's football program and its fan base's hope for a top-tier coaching hire, and that apparently rubbed Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd the wrong way. Todd, who was born in Miami but never attended UM, fired back at the radio host on Twitter.

">@finebaum, I know you are being provocative, but the SEC didn't know what real college football was until Miami reinvented it.

Hey @finebaum, I know you are being provocative, but the SEC didn't know what real college football was until Miami reinvented it.

It will be interesting to see if Finebaum responds.
