Caller to ‘Paul Finebaum Show’ not recognizing Georgia national championship
Some fans sure live in a world of denial.
One fan named “Fred From Alabama” called into “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Thursday. Fred is an Alabama fan and explained why he is not recognizing Georgia’s national championship.

Fred’s argument is that Georgia beat Alabama on Monday when the Crimson Tide were not at full strength.
Bama was without its top two wide receivers in John Metchie and Jameson Williams. Metchie suffered a torn ACL in the SEC Championship Game and Williams suffered a torn ACL early in the national championship game. When the teams played in the conference championship game, Alabama won 41-24. Georgia won the rematch 33-18.
Here’s our message to Fred: injuries are and always have been part of the game. Despite their injuries, Alabama led 18-13 in the fourth quarter. They just blew it and let the Bulldogs come back and beat them.
Fred is suffering from a case of sour grapes.
