Once again, Paul Finebaum is letting his thoughts on the Michigan fan base be known.
It’s no secret that the widely broadcasted college football radio analyst has a strong distaste for those in maize and blue. He made that clear earlier this season when he called Michigan fans “a whiny and sniveling bunch” before saying “call me back when you win just one championship.”
Thursday, he took it a step further. On ESPN’s “Mike & Mike” show, Finebaum ripped into Michigan fans.
“I have never met a Michigan fan who has had an ounce of humility or didn’t think his team was the greatest of all-time regardless of the record – especially since Jim Harbaugh took over,” he said.
Finebaum was then asked who he thought had the most arrogant fan base in college football. It was an opportunity Finebaum used to take more shots at Michigan.
“They have won a half a national championship in about 60 years, and they talk like they’re Alabama, Ohio State, USC, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Penn State wrapped into one,” he continued. “[…]When Harbaugh showed up, it gave them a sense of entitlement that they really haven’t earned.”
All of this appears to have started from Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic discussing a video of actor/Michigan fan Verne Troyer being hypnotized to say he liked Ohio State.
Finebaum ended his rant by saying that Michigan doesn’t have a seat at the “big boy table” in college football.
