Lee Fitting, is the Senior Coordinating Producer for College Sports Studio Shows for ESPN.

He is also one of the few who has the ability to render Paul Finebaum speechless.

Fitting joined Finebaum at the student center on the campus of Auburn University during a remote broadcast of “The Paul Finebaum Show” which was broadcast on Friday prior to “Iron Bowl 2013”.

Apparently, Finebaum was laughing so hard that, more than once, Fitting reversed roles with him to remind listeners that they were tuned to the show.

Said Finebaum on air (while choking back tears of laughter), “This has been my favorite interview of the football season.”

Finebaum’s self proclaimed “best caller”, “Jim from Tuscaloosa”, has been openly critical of Fitting and the past GameDay celebrity pickers.

“Iron Bowl” week has started early this year. Fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide have already banked the win over the University of Tennessee Chattanooga Mocs this upcoming Saturday.

In light of the recent developments in Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston’s legal issues, Bama fans are speculating that he may fall from grace as Cam Newton did at the University of Florida.

Die-hard fans of the Tide have long accused Auburn of “buying” Cam Newton for $180,000.00.  There are more than a few who have suggested that Winston may be on the market soon.

We thought we would give you a peek at what the future may hold for “Jaboo”.

While quarterback AJ McCarron may not generate the same level of Heisman Trophy hype as counterparts Johnny Manziel or Jameis Winston, the Alabama star was recognized with another honor this week. As he continues his quest for a third consecutive BCS title, McCarron graces the cover of the most recent issue of Sports Illustrated.

McCarron has won 35 games over the course of his Crimson Tide career, and he has passed for 2,228 yards with 21 touchdowns and five interceptions in 2013. Still, in some circles, the senior is labeled as a “game manager.” Writes executive editor L. Jon Wertheim:

“McCarron might be almost as well known for his arm candy as his arm strength, his body ink as his body of work. But let’s be clear: He’s not just one of the great Alabama quarterbacks. AJ McCarron is on the short list of the most successful players in the history of college football. Even if not many think of him that way.”

In the story, Wertheim explores the dichotomy between McCarron’s reputation in Alabama and across the nation, touching on his high-profile relationship with Katherine Webb and his leadership role in the locker room.

“By conventional metrics, McCarron is not going to elevate eyebrows. He will not often throw for 300 yards, the way, say, Manziel, Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater will. He’s not a dual threat.

“Then again, if you want to build a case for McCarron, you could do worse than starting here: He has as many national championships as he does defeats.”

Following last Saturday’s 20-7 victory over Mississippi State, ‘Bama is 10-0. It closes the regular season with matchups against Chattanooga (Nov. 23) and rival Auburn (Nov. 30).
