Today's matchup is quite intriguing. Colin Cowherd has emerged as one of the favorites in the Joe Morgan Memorial for obvious reasons. However, Joe Theismann has a long history of awful announcing in his own right. Can he upset the Thundering Herd? It's up to you to decide.
Colin Cowherd vs Joe Theismann
Fact File: Host of ESPN Radio's The Herd and co-host of SportsNation on ESPN2
Why He's Here: When polled last month, nearly 85% of respondents said that ESPN should end its relationship with Colin Cowherd. His stereotyping and pontificating are legendary for all the wrong reasons. Very few in the sports media get away with offensive and flat out wrong statements like Cowherd has the ability to do. Cowherd likes to pander to intellectual elites and openly mock large portions of his audience. Thankfully, CBS passed on a sitcom pilot based on the life of Cowherd.

Round 1 Result: Defeated Bobby Valentine 88.47% - 11.53%
Fact File: NFL Network analyst
Why He's Here: Joe has long been one of the blogosphere's least favorite analysts, but his legendary infamous run with Matt Millen was his "finest" hour. Although Theismann was axed from the game broadcasts after only a year, he's still listed as an on-air personality, so he makes the field. After all, NFL.com is still touting his "wealth of knowledge and expertise."

I thought that Spiro was pretty damn Good, after having the greatest announcer of
all time Chick Hearn . There will never but never as the whole world knows ever be
another like Chick. Joel Meyers was great too , very very Good. Why dont they give me a chance, it was always my dream to do Lakers Play by Play.
i thought crispino did a great job on radio and tv when he called some knick games for mike breen...does anyone know where crispino will be calling games next season..he'd be a good replacement for marv alpert who left the nyets for cbs..marv should be back as the voice of the knicks..mike breen is horrible..good voice but too vanilla
One change to this report -- Spero will not be replacing Gus Johnson on the radio, but rather Mike Crispino who replaced Gus.
Dedes, never did know how to call plays with plural words. It sounded like he was trying to cut his words short, to try and keep up with the play by play. I don't see what the big thing for him was? Joel Meyers, should have been retained. Great set of pipes and worked great with Stu Lance. Jim Buss, you are an idiot.
