ESPN’s Danny Kanell calls out Paul Finebaum on UT

Another day born, another day that ESPN’s Danny Kanell is preaching his hate of the SEC to the masses. Just one day after calling out Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban on his comments about draft grades, Kanell, a former Florida State Seminoles quarterback, has now shifted his attention to ESPN’s SEC analyst Paul Finebaum, specifically about the allegations that six Tennessee Volunteers football players from last season committed an act of sexual assault.

I wonder if @finebaum will spend the amount of time on the allegations at Tennessee as he did on FSU???

Per Anita Wadhwani of The Tennessean, the federal government has gotten itself involved in the investigation.

In terms of whether or not Finebaum, whose favoritism towards the SEC is well-known, will indeed spend as much time covering this story as he did the investigation involving former FSU quarterback, Heisman winner and championship winner Jameis Winston, Bud Elliort of SB Nation’s Tomahawk Nation offered more.

Realize that this Tennessee thing will not get the media play FSU does. Tennessee is not that level of program & no star player involved.

As of now, given how Tennessee has yet to release an official statement on the investigation, the conclusion here is simple. It looks as though Kanell is just very proud of his university and is stirring the pot with an SEC-loving co-worker.

Campus Sports will update the story around the investigation at UT as more information becomes public.
