Cowherd made me throw up...

    ...by saying today that Weis is a great fit at Notre Dame because he's so media friendly.

    He said it. He really did.

    As media friendly as his doppelganger Bill Parcells.

    Maybe he means he offers good quotes while disparaging others. As long as it's not you I'm sure it's a laff-riot.

    If by media friendly he means a controlling asshole, yes. He is.

    If Charlie is really channeling Parcells, then he's the beat writer's nightmare, the visiting beat writer's friend, the national writer's sweetheart, and a columnist's delight. I'm not at ND, but is that about how he's handling things?

    It's surprising to me Cowherd can even speak intelligibly with Weis's FUPA smothering his face 24/7/365.

    Dude, give us a break. The slurping noises DON'T make for good radio.

    I can think of a lot of coaches who fit that description.

    By the way, doesn't Gunt-boy look like Parcells without a horrendous dye job?

    i'll defend coach parcells on one issue:

    his pressers, four times a week, are as good as they get.

    unfortunately, none of his disciples carry that off nearly as well. although surprisingly, belichick has come along nicely.

    the disciples cut off access to assistants, close practices, etc., but then compound it by being AWFUL as the "one voice." at least parcells fills your notebook with quotable stuff.

    I hated when TK's morning show left the ESPN lineup, and it was replaced by this dreck.

    But I've tried to give Cowherd a chance. And since he had me on Spanning the Globe a few times, admittedly, I wanted to cut him some slack.

    But his show sucks. It does. He wants to be edgy, and isn't. He was going on his anti-newspaper rant today. A dying industry, etc. Tell us something we don't know.

    I do like Dan Patrick's hour with Olbermann, however. And Countdown, of course.

    STFU Colin.

    Hasn't Cowherd been losing ESPN affiliates lately? I know ESPN's NYC outlet has dropped him, but I thought I'd seen where a few more big markets had as well.
