Paul Finebaum says the Browns didn’t draft Trent Richardson, when in fact the Browns drafted Trent Richardson
A caller — Tom from Cleveland — on Paul Finebaum’s radio show brought up the Cleveland Browns drafting SEC players and how perhaps that’s been part of their problem (and there’s probably not much to that, but we don’t care about that right now). The caller mentioned Johnny Manziel with Texas A&M, and Trent Richardson with Alabama as failed Browns draft picks out of the SEC.
Finebaum: “Well first of all, Tom, let’s try to keep facts… the Browns did not draft Richardson, okay?”
Caller: “The Browns didn’t draft Trent Richardson?
Caller: “Eh, I think they did, Paul.”
Finebaum: “Uh, I don’t think they did, Tom.”
Trent Richardson was taken with the third overall pick of the 2012 draft… by the Cleveland Browns! This is pretty common knowledge to most football fans, and you’d think it would be quite common knowledge to people that cover SEC football for a living.
Finebaum later — sort of — corrected himself, saying that Richardson was drafted by the Browns, but said that Richardson didn’t start for Cleveland… which is also incorrect!
Richardson started 17 games for the Browns over his first two seasons, before being traded to the Colts. Just a really messy couple of moments for Finebaum, especially given that he tried to make the caller sound like the dumb one.
ESPN NBA Countdown crew on the election
Michelle Beadle, Jalen Rose, and Chauncey Billups got into a pretty deep discussion on NBA Countdown about the election. It was really good stuff, and our Andrew Bucholtz had an in-depth post on it with more videos, but here’s a sample:
