The above article caught my attention because of a passage that mentioned Herbstreit as part of an ongoing trend of sexual deviance at the WWL. The article itself is about Steve Phillips and his bizarre affair with a production intern. However, it also sheds light on others who work with the company. This passage was told by Phillips' mistress.
He [Phillips] talked to me about how—you know, not to worry. It would have been okay if we had had sex, because he had a vasectomy. Told me about how it was it okay, because how everybody at ESPN does this kind of thing, and he named a bunch of names, Scott Van Pelt and Nick Davis, who was like a dad to me at work, and Kirk Herbstreit.
I'm not saying this is breaking news. Many of us in the OSU fan community have heard rumblings about Herbstreit's supposed infidelity for years. But it does suggest that these rumors aren't just message board ramblings.
Mike Riccordati suggested that Herbstreit had "skeletons in his closet" after The Torg got fired from 97.1. Obviously he didn't say anything that would get him fired or in legal trouble, but the tone of his message was very clear.
I have to think that it's only a matter of time until the truth about Herbstreit finally surfaces. I don't know what that truth is exactly, but I know that it can't be good if it involves a handsome, married father of four who is away from his family for long periods of time. It doesn't help that he's made real enemies for the first time in his career. He really went out of his way to run Torg (who I cannot stand myself) off of the station, and it won't surprise me if that same ruthlessness is used against him someday
