    No, not Berman...but my personal No. 1 worst person at ESPN, Doug Gottleib.

    Whatever you do, don't leave your credit card out around him.

    Of all the ones at the mothership, he's you're No. 1? So many more ranked ahead/below him.

    I'm with MileHigh on this one. He may be hateable, but he's never shied away from explaining how he got kicked out of Notre Dame behind the credit card thefts, and how Sutton gave him a second chance at Okie State. Plus, I like his brutal honesty, whether I agree with it or not, when it comes to teams, coaches, and college basketball.

    He ain't no Digger Phelps and he's behind Jay Bilas when it comes to what he really thinks about the game.

    He's one of the more enjoyable listens on ESPN Radio for me.

    Not saying he's enjoyable by any means, but there are so many other clown acts above/below him that he's really a nonfactor for me.

    Bilas is the best analyst for any sport at ESPN.

    Yep, he's my No. 1. And not just because of his open, seething hatred of everything Mizzou.

    He's just terrible at what he does, in a professional broadcaster sense, and he really grates on my nerves.

    And that's fine. But to me, there are many more who are worse on the mothership.

    Personally, I don't know where I'd rank him (there are a few at the network I dislike more), but I definitely won't miss him on ESPN Radio.

    He's also never been afraid to tell the world how great he is, or how much he knows about pretty much everything.

    I won't go as far to say ESPN radio will be better without him, because I'm sure they'll put another self-important douche in his spot, since that's what the majority of their radios guys are. But, I know I won't miss him or his constantly patting himself on the back or telling the world how smart he is.

    CBS is launching a 24-hour sports radio network?

    That's sort of interesting. I wonder if they'll be able to get decent affiliates.
