    Shulman was the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball radio guy for years. Before that, he did Blue Jays games on TSN, Canada's version of ESPN.

    Always liked Jeannine Edwards, even moreso now (sorry if this was posted elsewhere; I didn't see it):

    I love Kiper.

    Very good point.

    Thanks, Steak. No wonder I wasn't familiar with him. As a Pirates fane, ESPN Sunday Night Baseball has been pretty low on my list.

    And Ron Franklin can't say that shit to our Jeannine Edwards. She does a great job on horse racing. She even did a dressage exhibition on the main track for the crowd at Saratoga this year.

    Didn't Ron Franklin do a similar thing to Holly Rowe on air a few years ago?

    College (football) Gameday is the only show they haven't managed to screw up but they're trying. Love that crew.

    And I'd like to see Urban Meyer replace Mark May.

    I don't have any feelings for the guy one way or the other, but I've just never seen him as someone with great pull or someone who galvanizes fans, a la Vitale or Billy Packer. I'm not a big CFB guy, though, so I'm honestly curious as to what I might have missed.

    It has nothing to do with galvanizing fans.

    College football is the one sport where opinion matters in who plays for the championship and Herbstreit is on TV talking about who should be ranked where for about 20 hours a week.

    Whether they want to admit it or not, pollsters listen.

    Certainly easier to listen to Herbstreit et al for 20 minutes than watch the games. Polls suck.

    Whenever I see May by himself he's OK. When he has to do the back-and-forth clown show with Holtz, he ends up on Lou's level of suckitude.

    Maybe I'm in the wrong biz, but I never watch SportsCenter, I try not to listen to the announcers when I watch a game and I absolutely cannot stand sports talk radio.

    I'd seriously rather listen to Rush Limbaugh.

    I'd love to see some games where they just have the sounds of the stadium, no announcers. I would go out of my way to watch those.
