Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post There can only be one

Mr. SEC asks if Mike Bianchi is becoming the new Paul Finebaum. I had been wondering about this since both went after the low-hanging fruit of Mark Richt on the hot seat. Finebaum has been stirring that pot all summer, but Bianchi took Round 1 with a single missive last week comparing Georgia to South Carolina. Travis sees Bianchi as a strong contender in this race to the bottom, but one episode won’t settle this competition.

Round 2 is out now and takes on the pressing issue of Vanderbilt’s membership in the SEC. Bianchi launched his salvo last weekend. It was bombastic enough to earn the Finebaum comparison from Mr. SEC, but honestly it was a bit disappointing and came off more as a pitch for the hometown team. Paul struck back with his own screed against Vandy and Caldwell, and it’s a formidable response with enough Jerry Clower and Larry the Cable Guy references to qualify for a spot on Sirius/XM’s Blue Collar Radio channel.

With the score tied, we can look forward to round 3. I’ll be really let down if it doesn’t throw some gasoline on the 2004 national championship topic.
