Paul Finebaum Went From a Moving Eulogy for a Late Media Member Immediately to a Guy Named Squirrel

First of all, rest in peace to longtime Alabama reporter Cecil Hurt, who worked for The Tuscaloosa News for nearly 40 years covering Alabama and tragically passed away Tuesday at the age of 62. Anyone who has followed SEC football for any length of time has probably read more than a handful of Hurt's stories. He will be dearly missed.

But in a needed moment of levity only something like The Paul Finebaum Show could provide, viewers went from a prayer by a pastor from Tuscaloosa right into somebody named Squirrel. You can see the moment Finebaum looks down at his screen and realizes he has to say that Squirrel is up next. You couldn't script that any better.

Thankfully, Squirrel at least acknowledged the "great prayer" from the previous caller before presumably going into his question about how the Tide can still get into the College Football Playoff with a close loss against Georgia. He's not callous.

If you ever want to know why It Just Means More, spend an hour watching Finebaum. It's some of the best entertainment we have in college football, and that's saying something.
