ESPN radio personality Colin Cowherd, an Eastern Washington alumnus, is in attendance for the contest. ESPN brought Cowherd into the booth to talk about the game and other college football topics. The Twitterverse was not happy about that.

Listening to Cowherd makes my ears bleed!  He does like Meyer and gives him a lot of credit so I try to like him, but I can't.

So they're saying they don't like him?

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Yes to all the above tweets. I don't care for Cowherd, and that's putting it mildly. Nasally, self important, arrogant, preachy, abrasive and absolutely zero football perspective on which to draw and form his opinions. I just don't get how he's still on the air. Apparently he's pulling the necessary ratings… but every time I acquiesce and listen to his show for five minutes I regret it. I end up wanting to put my fist through the radio.

Everybody in the free world knows Colin put $$$$ on this game.

And hopefully lost.

There are three different types of people in the world.....those who can count, and those who cannot.

TheBadOwl's picture

I generally can't stand a lot of the ESPN pundits... but...

Shockingly enough, I actually do like Cowherd. He's probably one of my favorites on the network.

No, I'm not joking.

Nobody cares, but here's a list of ESPN personalities that the 11W commentariat hates that I actually really like.

  • Bill Simmons
  • Dan Le Batard
  • Bomani Jones
  • Mike and Mike
  • SVP and Russillo
  • Michael Wilbon (disagree with him pretty frequently, but I respect the hell out of his work)
  • Kenny Mayne
  • Kirk Herbstreit
  • Michele Beadle
  • Keith Olbermann (His ESPN show is great. I like hearing him talk about sports. Don't care nearly enough to watch his political stuff)
  • Buster Olney / Tim Kurkjian
  • Anything written for Grantland (I'm a sucker for long-form journalism)

Sidenote: I'm pretty sure I could make a checklist of everyone who's been regularly on ESPN over the past five years, and there would be a forum post about every single one about how much someone here hates them.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Ryan Russillo..... Would punch in the face if I wouldn't get prosecuted.  Total putz.

buckeyeinthechi's picture

Even people in Miami hate Dan Le Batard, his talk show (and tv show if it's still on) is a total clown show.

His billboard stunt was very fitting, since he's an idiot.

I thought what he did with his baseball HoF vote this year was incredible, given how ridiculously pretentious and sanctimonious many of the voters are (one ballot had just Jack Morris, no Biggio/Maddux/Glavine, and other ballots had guys like JT Snow, Jacques Jones and Armando Benitez getting votes without Biggio).

He gave his vote to Deadspin, and ended up submitting the most rational ballot out there, with the ten most statistically worthy players up for induction.

There's always going to be a segment of any sports pundit's local audience that is vocally against that pundit. I personally think that HQ is the best show on ESPN's afternoon lineup, and Le Batard is much better than many give him credit for.

I didn't realize there was a problem with Simmons, I generally like his writing. You can't actually like LeBatard, his schtick is to make nobody like him, he's a poor mans Jim Rome. If you like LeBatard then you don't get what he's doing.

Michael Wilbon is about the only one I dislike with any conviction. There's nothing respectable about his work, and his opinions are all biased as hell about everything. I think he's boring, and not really a sports guy. Plus every time he makes fun of someone's bad first pitch I wonder if h thinks people forgot about his.

Michael Wilbon is about the only one I dislike with any conviction. There's nothing respectable about his work, and his opinions are all biased as hell about everything.

He's a columnist, his opinions are supposed to be biased. If he was a reporter, it would be much different.

When it comes to columnists, you can't really complain about them being biased. I understand frustration with their biases not reflecting your own, but people have different worldviews and it's not worth getting so worked up over slight differences in opinion.

You can't actually like LeBatard, his schtick is to make nobody like him, he's a poor mans Jim Rome. If you like LeBatard then you don't get what he's doing.

I actually can't stand Jim Rome, he tries to be too edgy and antagonize his guests. Le Batard is different. I know people here hate him for the Cleveland thing, which was dumb, but Highly Questionable is a pretty great show and his radio show (when Bomani is on) is a good listen, too.

I've never really heard Le Batard say something that I really vehemently disagree with, I just generally enjoy watching his show. His Deadspin BBWA vote thing won me over, though.

No sportswriter will ever share every single one of my opinions on every single topic, so it's not worth getting worked up over when one of them writes something (or a lot of things) that I disagree with.

The "problem" with Colin cowherd that Espn loves is that he says things to stir up the pot then people go all over social media loving or hating him for it and getting the Espn brand plastered everywhere. 

As long as you're talking about him, good or bad, it's good for Espn.
