    Cowherd makes things up

    He just said that the Big 12 is a horrible conference...if I heard correctly.

    Re: Cowherd makes things up

    This is news to you? He does it all the time, just to **** people off. Because he thinks controversy drives ratings and ratings is all he cares about.

    Gotta create controversy.

    Lie if you have to.

    No, but that statement is 180 degrees from what everyone else thinks. It may not be a great conference but "terrible" doesn't come to mind. Did anybody else hear it? He was arguing with a caller and I may have misheard.

    Re: Cowherd makes things up

    I'm sure this will be followed up by him getting on his soap box to use all the angry emails he gets to preach some stupid life lesson.

    His show is very predictable (and very preachy).

    Re: Cowherd makes things up

    I think arguments can be made for his point of view. Yeah, we did get 7 teams in (although whether Texas and Mizzou deserved in is another argument), but the second-best team this year was clearly K-State, and they were owned by Kansas this year, beaten 3 times. Either Kansas is just that good (which is definitely part of it), or we're looking at it without objectivity.

    Well, what's the context? Horrible football? Basketball? Academics? Views of the Pacific Ocean from dorm rooms?

    Re: Cowherd makes things up

    The b12 has a very good shot of getting 4 teams into the sweet sixteen and 3 elite eights. That would be a nice statement. Recall last year the bEast got 5 sw16 teams, which got everyone all excited. But only UCONN made the final four and they obviously didn't win the title.

    Re: Cowherd makes things up

    Did he use some stupid voice when describing the Big XII? He always does that when he's telling stories.

    Re: Cowherd makes things up

    I never listen to his radio stuff, but all I know is that SportsNation is awful. Between the people yelling the background, putting up Cowherd's quotes like he said something monumental, the stupid *** games they play, and the forced dailogue between Beedle and him...it is just an all around failure.
