#SECNation and The @Finebaum Show in Starkville for #USCvsSTATE this weekend


The #SECNetwork shows @Finebaum and #SECNation are in Starkville for the #Gamecocks matchup with State. The Paul Finebaum Show will be broadcast live from The Junction on the Mississippi State campus on Friday afternoon starting at 3 p.m.

Paul Finebaum shares compelling opinions on SEC sports through a deep knowledge of the conference and interaction with passionate callers that have followed him for years.

His show airs on television on SEC Network from 3-7 p.m. ET, and is also available on syndicated radio station. Fans can be a part of the show by calling 855-242-PAUL (7285).

SEC Nation, an SEC version of ESPN’s GameDay Show, features the Mississippi State campus for the Gamecocks visit.

If you love SEC football, you’ll love SEC Nation. Joe Tessitore, Tim Tebow, Marcus Spears, Greg McElroy, Paul Finebaum and Kaylee Hartung break down everything from touchdowns to tailgating. The show airs from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. every Saturday during college football season on the ESPN SEC Network. The two-hour pregame show has several established weekly segments: Tebow’s freak of the week, Spears’ tailgate eats, and Hartung’s social segments.

The pregame show will broadcast live from The Junction, a beautiful tailgating area beneath the shade of  oak trees outside of the Mississippi State football stadium. The brick pathways winding along among rows of tents beneath the oaks mimics The Grove at the University of Mississippi. The show begins at 10 a.m.

Mike Patrick

The play by play man is veteran Mike Patrick from Virginia. Patrick’s announcing notoriety arose during a 2007 SEC game between Georgia and Alabama. During the overtime period of that exciting football game, Patrick spontaneously asked the color man, Todd Blackledge, what he thought of Brittany Spears’ career. Blackledge was confused. “Why do we care at this point? Is she here?” We didn’t and she wasn’t.

Ed Cunningham

Ed Cunningham

The color man is Ed Cunningham. This is a multi-talented man. He won an Oscar as the producer for the documentary Undefeated, a story that looked inside an inner city Memphis high school football season.

Cunningham took some heat last week for speculating that a Michigan football player was not playing against Hawaii for disciplinary reasons. Michigan’s touchy Head Coach Jim Harbaugh lit him up.
