Paul Finebaum Called Out This Major Head Coach Today

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum called out a major head coach during his appearance on SportsCenter this morning.

The SEC personality believes one head coach is being extremely "stubborn" so far this season. That head coach: Georgia's Kirby Smart.

Finebaum believes a quarterback change should've been made for the Bulldogs, who need to give five-star freshman Justin Fields more snaps.

The ESPN analyst can't see why Smart hasn't made the change.

"I think he should’ve done it in Baton Rouge a couple weeks ago and maybe it wouldn’t been a lopsided game,” Finebaum said this morning. "Everyone is making that (quarterback) move including his old boss Nick Saban. Kirby Smart is stubborn. You can’t hang your hat on Jake Fromm being 18-3 as a starter. Alabama had that in Jalen Hurts, but they made the move and that’s why they’ve looked so dominant.

"If Jake Fromm struggles in this game, look for a change. orby Smart has shad a bye week to get ready. I don’t believe he can win this game with a sloppy Fromm. Florida’s defense is too good."

Fromm has struggled at times this season, but so has the rest of the Georgia offense. The Bulldogs remain a contender in both the SEC and for the College Football Playoff.

Florida and Georgia are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. The game will be on CBS.
