Last week it was revealed Colin Cowherd would host one episode of College Football Live each week with Kirk Herbstreit throughout the fall. Now comes a report via The Big Lead that Cowherd will get a solo show on Sunday mornings at 9 AM on ESPN2. It'll focus on what else - football. (What you were expecting a show about NASCAR?)
But instead of just focusing on the NFL, which is pretty much all of Sunday morning sports television in the fall, Cowherd's show will reportedly cover both recaps of Saturday's college action and previews of Sunday's NFL action. That's actually a decent idea as college football gets lost in the overwhelming glare of the NFL from Sunday-Tuesday every week and there's certainly a market for it.
However, it's no secret that Cowherd isn't exactly a favorite of AA with his innacurate stereotyping and history of bloviating. Cowherd's most tolerable and, gulp, likable role was as SportsNation co-host with Michelle Beadle when he had someone to play off him. The question is which direction this new football show goes? If it's another hour of trying to compare Johnny Manziel's STAR POWER or MVPness to Tom Brady then it'll be equally useless to the majority of ESPN's other vapid studio programming. If Cowherd is teamed with someone who can keep his riffs in check and it offers something smart and different, it could find a niche on Sunday mornings.
I am glad sports television has someone like Colin that gives honest and well thought opinions. Since he left sports nation it went from a show about how the viewer sees sporting events and personalities to a show of 'got ya' moments. Cannot wait for him to make the best 21 days of the year even better.
Eh, he's okay for football. I like it when he talks about NBA stuff other then LeBron or the Heat. Unfortunately, that's never.
I don’t catch Cowherd’s radio show much but I did hear it a few weeks ago.He discussed a matchup between Teams A and B.He said that either team could beat the other but Team A would never lose in a blowout.His statement seemed reasonable and his back up to this argument made sense.I was pleasantly surprised at the rational statement with well-reasoned backup and thought that maybe he was not a bad as some folks made him out to be.Unfortunately he was talking about the Miami Heat and it was the day of game three and that night the Spurs boat raced the Heat 113-77.At least he didn’t pull a Wilbon and emphatically declare that only an idiot would think the Spurs could ever beat the Heat in a blowout.
again i was so glad when he left sportsnation, that the only time you could watch him if you watched the simulcast of his show
why? I love football but there are enough football shows on right now. do we really need yet another?
