What an ass...talk about not being able to handle being called out and wrong.

Class of 2010.

he is achieving his goal.  Getting reaction and attention.  Funny how a longtime SEC blowhard has nothing to debate or contraversialize (if that is even a word) now that the SEC is the clearcut King of college football and the BCS is going to a small scale playoff.
Seems like he is reaching for reaction, please don't help him......ignore him.

I agree.  It also allows him to ignore the Mississippi State allegations.  I would be interested to see how that is covered by CBS and SECSPN over the next few days.

I bet his ratings go up significantly. This is how you get ratings these days. Make controversial statements, whether true or not, and the resulting outrage will create ratings.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

There should be some sort of journalistic credibility maintained, something Brando threw out early in the conversation.
Corso has to issue an apology every time he lets a swear slip on air, the same accountability should be held towards sports "journalists" who fabricate lies and base stories upon these fantasies.

You're referring to an accidental slip at Houston, aren't you?

Instead of sending any response to Brando or listening to his show. Send it to CBS and tell them as long as he is on air you will boycott all CBS tv and radio advertisers. His ass might just get removed if enough do it.

Untalented journalist says something to piss off large fanbase and encourages people to call into his show and debate him.  Nobody pays attention to Tim Brando (or Greg Doyel or Paul Finebaum or Clay Travis...) because he's entertaining or insightful, they do it because they get angry at him.  The vast majority of sports media is pulling a discount skip bayless schtick right now. 
The thing I don't get is why people get so bent out of shape over it.  It's easy to avoid these assholes.  Just don't click on their links or watch their shows.

I don't know about you guys... but that was freakin awesome. Reminds me of that guy at a party who blatantly tells bullcrap stories about himself and when you ask him to produce some bit of evidence he calls you a "creep" or "doesn't care if you believe him or not" when clearly he is just spouting garbage.

My favorite part was when Tim May started calling him on it, and he acts like he's an attack dog for OSU.

Man, I thought this topic would of died by now.  Can't believe it's still going.
