Analyst rips 'unrealistic' Michigan football fans 'from another planet'

Paul Finebaum rips Michigan football fans ... again

College football's top SEC supporter is at it again.

On his show Tuesday, SEC Network analyst Paul Finebaum took aim at Michigan football fans for the second time this season, comparing them to fans of rival Ohio State.

"There's no comparison between Ohio State and Michigan fans. Ohio State fans are very knowledgeable people," Finebaum said.

"Michigan fans are from another planet ... Ohio State fans at least know what they're talking about."

The latest outburst comes almost exactly one month after he called Michigan fans "pathetic," sniveling" and "whiny."

"Is there a more pathetic fan base in America than the University of Michigan? What a whiny and sniveling bunch," he said in mid-September.

This time, he attacked Michigan fans for thinking that their team's 6-0 start has any meaning.

"Call me back when you win just one (championship)," he said.

Finebaum called Michigan fans "some of the most unrealistic people" with whom he's interacted while covering college football.

"I don't think (Michigan fans) are nearly as knowledgeable as Ohio State fans when it comes to football IQ," Finebaum said. "I've yet to meet a Michigan fan that has a sense of humor about his program, that has an ounce of objectivity in their body."

Michigan didn't even play last weekend, but that didn't stop Finebaum. As the Wolverines continue to win, the rivalry will only get fiercer.
