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.
Why is Colin Cowherd part of this broadcast crew? Undeserving and uninteresting.

Why in the hell is Colin Cowherd announcing this football game?

You moved up college football a weekend early to let Colin Cowherd talk about coconut water. This is why we get ungrateful, ESPN.

Dear ESPN, please do not put Colin Cowherd on College Football broadcasts anymore. Otherwise I'm just going to have to mute everything.
