Last year Cowherd said we were 1year away from elite, defense much improved with a powerhouse offense.  He is saying now our defense won't stop anybody, WTF?

Why do you listen to that moron.  He is the worst host on ESPN.  He has no real opinions; only spouts provocative BS.

Why are you listening to Cowherd?

Cowherd is one of the biggest flip flopping douches on the planet. He will say anything that is in vogue if he thinks it will make him sound smart. That is all.

He owes me 260 bucks vacation pay, and he won't fuckin' pay that, so I figured a handful of chips wasn't too much to ask.

I listen to Cowherd, I admit it..

This would make good bulletin board material, and last year our defense did sort of suck.

He's a joke-just spews things to get ratings.  SVP and Russillo are actually a good listen, and have a clue about the things they talk about.

Cowherd's formula....

1) think of an opinion

2) find some obscure fact that supports that opinion, while at the same time ignoring other more pertinent facts

3) integrate it's correlation with tv ratings

4) dismiss all other opinions

why are you listening to Cowherd? He is good 10% of the time, and thats only when he isn't actually speaking.

Cowturd may be mad that we remember him saying Rich Rod's offensive schemes Going to Michigan were going to set other Big 10 schools on their ear.

He does what all the others that try to troll Ohio State do...troll. Says something dumb to upset a huge fanbase and that equals more responses, more spotlight and more pageviews for himself. Just ignore it.

Whether positive or negative, Buckeye talk generates ratings. I remember a time when the Fabulous Sports Babe made it a point to disconnect whenever someone referenced TOSU. Sadly, it's all done to generate listeners. Good or bad we move the dial, I love being a Buckeye.

Probably showing my age there, as that was some time ago. Possibly not the best reference for this environment, but it was comparable in my mind.

He spouts a special type of douche baggery that is hard for me to comprehend. Every body on here has him nailed: 1) He makes a controversial statement, 2) Backs it up with the most obscure information, 3) And then flops and makes an excuse for his inane comment. At least he was right last year when he said we were 1 year away from being elite.

You forgot how he just keeps repeating the same thing over and over.  This morning he was dogging RGIII for an hour and all he really said was, can't slide well, gets popped.  WTF does that mean?

I have to admit, about 10 years ago, when he first started at ESPN, I really enjoyed listening to him. I haven't listened to him for 4 years now, and I can't say that I have missed him at all. Like you say, he just says the same thing over and over.

I'd rather listen to the Fabulous Sports Babe...

Why ANYONE on this earth gives one damn about what Cowherd says is beyond me. He is paid to 'poke the bear'. He is paid to get people talking, agitated and tuning in. He is THE MOST abrasive radio personality on air today, IMO. His voice is made for radio about as much as Don Knotts' was, and his point of reference specific to football is no different / better than my sister (who, just like Cowherd, never played a down of football in her life). Listen to Dan Patrick on 1230AM... you'll be more entertained and far, far less agitated.

Cowherd likes to hear himself talk and if you are smart you'll let him be the listener as well. as Sgt Schultz on Hogans Heros says   "I know NOTHING" and neither does CC

Cowherd just wants the ratings, which is why he's been around so long.

He's a closet Ohio State fan. Fact.

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

Sometimes he seems interesting and other times when I hear him, it's like my head has 4 headaches at once.

I think he may be in cahoots with my wife.  They always seem to have the exact opposite opinion as me...

Cowherd is no one to pay attention too.  The worse thing you can do is feed that troll.

I don't always downvote, but I do always downvote a Michigan fan trolling the Buckeye boards.
