    Colin Cowherd as the third man in the booth?

    Is this a year-long thing, or a gimmick play?

    Yes to both.

    ESPN, in its eternal mission to remind us that the "E" is for entertainment, is bringing guests to the booth. Figuring that it's dragging casual viewers for MNF, they're toying around with doing the same crap for college football.

    I know that, Sam, but I was wondering if the Cowherd thing was an every-Friday thing.

    "Did I say they were awful?"

    "Yes, you did."

    "Oh."

    Note to self: do not watch any college football on ESPN this year.

    There's still too much football in football broadcasts.
    Somebody needs to address this.

    It's not going to be an every week thing, but he will potentially do a couple more as the season goes on. ESPN fooled around with this idea a little bit last year. Their "Full Circle" coverage of FSU-Miami had Cowherd commentary available on one of the feeds.

    I find it amazing that Cowherd actually gave an on air gambling pick on the game he was broadcasting - take the under - today on his program. That's about as stupid and unprofessional as an NCAA game broadcaster can be. Even more amusing was that he missed on the pick.

    At least you could ignore the feed. And like 14 people nationwide get ESPNU.

    This, you couldn't avoid him.
