Earlier this week, ESPN analyst Paul Finebaum made a bold statement by saying Alabama’s run of dominance is now over. Many people agree with that narrative, but Tim Tebow isn’t part of that group.
Tebow was on First Take to discuss the most interesting topics in college football. Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman asked the former Heisman Trophy winner if he agreed with Finebaum’s stance on the Crimson Tide.
“I just don’t agree with it, I love Paul but I just don’t agree,” Tebow said. “I think Alabama is one of the best programs in the country.”
At the end of the day, Nick Saban’s team fell short to a pair of really good programs – Auburn and LSU. For that reason alone, Tebow isn’t ready to write off Alabama.
Another reason that Tebow is pro-Alabama in this scenario is because the program constantly makes the postseason, saying “That’s still a really good team with a lot of the best players in the country on it. First time they’re not in a playoff in the history of the playoffs and we’re gonna say their dominance is done?”
Here’s the full segment from ESPN’s First Take:
The competition around Alabama is definitely catching up. Clemson and LSU have taken those next steps to potentially dethroning Saban’s team as the most dominant in college football.
Nonetheless, the Crimson Tide will remain a threat to win the national title as long as Saban is at the helm.
Who do you agree with on this topic: Paul Finebaum or Tim Tebow?
