Paul Finebaum Says He was Embarrassed for Steve Spurrier

Paul Finebaum considers himself an old friend of Steve Spurrier, but there are some things he has to speak out about. 

The radio host talked about the South Carolina coach making a story out of nothing when an Atlanta Journal-Constitution writer brought up the issue of his age. Finebaum mentioned if Spurrier would have let the story go, there would not have been anyone talking about it days after, saying he turned a "dead story into a two-day story." 

"I was embarrassed for him," Finebaum said. "He came off like the crazy uncle in the attic. There was no explanation, there was no reason." 

Finebaum went on to say Spurrier brought the attention on to himself, which is not the best at this point in time.

"He's not as good a coach, he's not at the same type of program that he used to be," Finebaum said.
