I've said this hear maybe a couple dozen times; Desmond Howard is the dumbest sports talker in the history of television.

ESPN is idiot stew. 

I mean, I can’t even narrow it down to the 4 that should go on the Mt Rushmore of idiot sports talkers.   I get to #7 or 8 before I even get to a non ESPN figure. 

Stephen A, Desmond, Booger, Heather, Mark May,  Berman, Jesse (will you accept this rose?) and Pollack all come to mind before I go outside the worldwide leader for examples of idiocy (Fouts).

This. Disney’s Pregame Clownshow Gameday has been unwatchable for many years

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.

Had Gameday on while I was doing some work around the house early.  What a lot of dopey chatter.

Why aren't you watching Fox with our old buddy, Urban?

I have to agree. Think Urban is a great analyst. Of course I'm a total Michigan homer, but I still don't get why you'd watch ESPN over Fox for pregame and game analysis. (I personally am not a great fan of Fox's game coverage . . . too many closeups and tight angles, making it difficult to see the field and see plays unfold.)

Agree wholeheartedly, Blu. Fox tries to use too much “thrill cam” and anyone wanting to see a play develop gets zilch.

Really... Gameday actually used to be fun to watch.. but now it's like 4 hours long, 50% Tom Rinaldi pseudo-poetic heartfelt stories about people tangentially associated with one team or another, and forced witness to the simultaneous decrease in Lee Corso's brain and Increase in Kirk Herbstreit's waist.  And then there's Desmond Howard's inane takes.

I’ve never been a pregame show guy, but I watched the Fox pregame today and was really impressed. Loved the segment where Urban broke down what inside/outside zone are.

HS
NorCal Buckeye's picture

I had to laugh when he used his standard "some of the best linemen I've been around" when he was describing the soldiers who stood in. I'm certain that somewhere in Ohio a couple buddies watching had to take a shot.

HS

I loved it too. It's a nice change of pace to see someone who knows what he's talking about actually break things down for the audience. It's certainly a welcome break from the talking heads using nothing but home field advantage and poll position (and in some cases pure disdain) to guess a winner.

I predicted the same, however Penix is out for the season and I think he was the key to beating TTUN.  I’m still hopeful but much less likely now.

IU will beat michigan

Nope. And I wish there was a realistic way to make friendly wagers.

HS
Ahh Saturday's picture

I like you Blu, but it seems you are susceptible to the same sudden, unmerited surges in confidence that plague all Michiganders. Right now, Michigan's second best "win" is the loss they took against the team that Minnesota just beat. IU will be getting points, and I will be taking them. You probably should too.

Will be interesting to see if he has the nads to pick TTUN to beat Ohio State.

Howard can't hide his utter hate for Ohio State. The former OSU players on TV all go the other way and are tough on OSU. Desmond on the other hand shows nothing but love for TTUN.

   Even worse than his bias against OSU is Howard's horrible cackling he does whenever he laughs. I can't stand that!

Of course everyone has a right not to watch GameDay, but it really is well produced, has legit news, humor, human interest, and excitement. I don't understand how so many people get butt hurt over another person's opinion.

HS
Buck298's picture

You are correct if you are thinking of Gameday from 10 or more years ago. The quality has really dropped in my opinion to the point for me it is no longer watchable. They produce some good individual segments within the show but you have to watch all of it to catch those. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

I believe Gameday started its decline with Lee’s stroke.  He was always so sharp with his analysis and the chemistry on-set with everyone debating his points (and Lou’s back in the studio) was excellent.  Now, it’s just a shell of its former self.  Fox’s pregame is what Gameday used to be, at least in my opinion.  

I survived Cooper, and I hate Tai Streets.

HS
Buck298's picture

We are in agreement. Now I didn't watch gameday yesterday, but I saw that 11W showed the segment they produced on Chuck Csuri. Now that is an example where they still shine. But the rest of the antics and analysis has become worthless in my mind. I like Lee Corso, but he should have retired a long long time ago.

Looks like Desmond's favorite team will be hosting Michigan State next week, which I think is a very fortunate break for the maize and blue. The Spartans gave up four fourth-quarter touchdowns in their loss at home to Illinois today. Since having their asses handed to them a month ago in the Shoe, Dino's guys have been the biggest quitters in college football.

Desmond is an idiot to the highest degree and doesn’t deserve his platform whatsoever...having said that, if you want to refute that it’s not good that our two best wins are against an AAC team and a team that lost to Illinois (and I’m the biggest Illinois/Lovie supporter/truther on this board) then idk what to tell you. Our best wins aren’t really that great and our toughest three games are ahead of us. The only difference is that we have quality teams to play to prove our worth against worthy opponents in the near future.

HS

I’ll agree with you, but I’ll take it a little further. Not counting Rutgers, our toughest 5 games are ahead of us.
