ESPN pundit Paul Finebaum thinks that Alabama could beat the Cleveland Browns.

“How could you call [Alabama] a semi-pro team? They could beat the Cleveland Browns right now, which a lot of schools could,” Finebaum said during an appearance on SportsCenter. (SLIDESHOW: Get College Football Started Right With These Top 25 Ranked Cheerleaders)

Finebaum, or anyone else, thinking a college team can compete with an NFL team is absolutely laughable. A recent poll also showed the majority of people in Ohio think Ohio State could be the Browns, which of course is also a ridiculous statement.

The idea that a team of teenagers and young men in their early twenties competing against seasoned professionals is so outlandish it’s almost hard to describe. There’s not more than four players on Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson or any other team in America that could start for the Browns if they had to tomorrow.

Former Alabama running back Derrick Henry won the Heisman and has yet to score a touchdown in the NFL. It is incredibly rare for a rookie to come into the NFL and have a substantial impact. The idea of the whole team doing it is absolutely ludicrous.
