Finebaum says Benny Snell would get his vote for Heisman today

Paul Finebaum of the The Paul Finebaum Show fame was kind enough to lend his time to Matt Jones and Hey Kentucky! for a brief chat about Kentucky football last night.

The interview began with talk of the Cats’ undefeated start to the season and how Finebaum’s telephone lines have been lit up with callers wanting to talk about Kentucky, which is very unusual this time of the year. He also chatted about the radio business and his own career, before Matt had him make his predictions for the remaining eight games on UK’s schedule.

I think Kentucky can go 10-2,” Finebaum said, when asked to make a prediction. “I really don’t see that many difficult games left on the schedule. I think Georgia is the wild card, maybe Texas A&M.”

Finebaum then said Benny Snell would be his pick for Heisman, not Alabama’s Tua Tagovailola, if the voting were today.

I think Benny Snell is a legitimate Heisman candidate, too. Today I would vote for Benny Snell first on my ballot. That is today but that’s what I would do. I think he is that good, he is that impactful… Even over Tua, Benny Snell is my guy.”

    Anyone who thinks Benny will win the Heisman is retarded

      Yeah he probably won’t, but he definitely can end up in the top 3 which would have him at the ceremony. It’s nice to tell recruits that we had a Heisman finalist. Hell Couch was the #1 draft pick, but didn’t end up as a finalist.

      Anyone who would use that term to try to put others down is just a plain ASS. Hope KSR takes away your right to ever post again, but if they make money from hits and ads and post they will probably not care. Would love for Blueballz to have the balls to come see me at the game, will give you a chance to explain why you use that term before I show you what a jerk you really are.

      He had a poor choice of words to try and be edgy, and drive home a point. It was a terrible idea he had…but threatening violence against people, especially people who have to use that word to convey a point, is never the right answer man. Teaches them nothing and probably adds more fuel to their fire. Give that guy his own special needs child, let him walk that walk, then he won’t use such ugly words. Beating him senseless will satisfy you, me, and lots of other people appalled by his crude, and slow attempt at wit, but it won’t change him.

      And I will add if we continue this run and Benny does this to A&M and UGA leading us to wins and maybe a spot in the SEC Ship game he can win it. I know that is alot of IF however just like in the rankings, he has to come from way back just because he did not start the season in top 5. Yes Tua will prolly win it, but all players are one hit, one weird step from their season being done. Lots of football to go, and like Benny said he plays for KENTUCKY and not awards. As for me I just love watching him play and watching the fun he has on the sideline and with the cameras.

      If you go off of only the impact made by a player so far he has a legitimate case.
