SEC Network’s Paul Finebaum already spoke out with his opinion that Alabama defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand should be suspended for the team’s season opener. But that’s not the only issue that Finebaum has with the situation.
Hand recently was arrested for a DUI, the same offense that offensive lineman Alphonse Taylor received an indefinite suspension for last summer. So Finebaum is wondering why Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban isn’t doing the same to Hand. Finebaum voiced that opinion on Monday morning on WJOX 94.5 FM.
“[Saban] likes to deal with things internally, that’s great,” Finebaum said on WJOX’s “The Opening Drive.” “But I still think he has opened himself up again on this issue of discipline, I think there has been inconsistency.”
And according to Finebaum, there should be consistency by suspending Hand.
“I think [Saban] tries to have it both ways,” Finebaum said. “I know there are very few Alabama fans listening who probably care what any of us think, they think Nick Saban is right about every issue, but he’s not. When it comes to driving under the influence, there should be a pretty standard response.”
Alabama opens the season with a huge marquee matchup against Florida State on Sept. 2.
