Relax, guys; our long Southeastern Conference nightmare is over. Paul Finebaum will reportedly re-sign with ESPN and the SEC Network, according to Dan Wolken.
Finebaum’s previous contract with ESPN was set to expire at the end of this month, and with negotiations stalled, word spread a few weeks ago that he was entertaining offers from Fox Sports and its Big Ten Network. According to this report, that’s not the case anymore, and PAWWWWL will be on the SEC Network for years to come.
Thank goodness. The SEC without Paul Finebaum is like Alabama without houndstooth. South Carolina without “Sandstorm.” Tennessee without checkerboard — oh, wait…
