His comments are perhaps the most ridiculous take of the entire college football season. Alabama would be nearly a thirty point underdog if they played the Browns.
Furthermore, Finebaum is a well-respected football expert and if anybody knows how insane his comments are it should be himself. Derrick Henry won the Heisman trophy at Alabama and shredded defenses. However, he has been the definition of lackluster against NFL defenses. He failed to rush for more than 500 yards and only scored five touchdowns.

The Browns have perhaps the best offensive lineman in the NFL in Joe Thomas, quarterback Robert Griffin III would run wild on a college defense, defensive back Joe Haden could lock down any college wide receiver and receiver Terrell Pryor would get open easily against teenage defensive backs.
Alabama would be lucky to cross midfield, and scoring touchdowns on an NFL defense would be a fantasy. Utterly ridiculous to ever think any college football or basketball team could beat their professional counterparts.
