Paul Finebaum was unimpressed by Steve Spurrier's SEC Media Days appearance.

South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier had most of the media eating out of his hand Tuesday during his time at SEC Media Days. The one exception: SEC Network media gadfly Paul Finebaum, who was having nothing of it.

Finebaum was asked by The State for his thoughts on how the Gamecocks' upcoming college football season would be like. He took the time to dissect Spurrier's comments to the media on Tuesday, accusing the coach of "playing a lot of defense" when it came to

“I am not overly optimistic,” Finebaum said. “I was a little surprised by what Steve Spurrier said (Tuesday). As the greatest offensive coach in SEC history, he seemed to be playing a lot of defense, and that surprised me. It was somewhat uncharacteristic of Steve Spurrier to continue to try to spin a 7-6 season, and I thought it was a little odd that he took a shot at Tennessee and Arkansas. Tennessee had 23 freshmen and a new quarterback, and they beat him last year. The whole thing was somewhat perplexing. I think they (will finish) about where they were last year.”

Never let it be said that Finebaum shied away from not following the crowd when it came to having an opinion. It will certainly make Spurrier's next appearance on Finebaum's radio/TV show even more interesting.
