    Colin COW-Herd

    Why does this guy suck so bad? I HATE him. His opening comment today was about how awesome it'll be when the state of Texas joins the Pac-10 and makes a super 16 and how it'll work out perfectly for everyone. How's it help ISU, KU, or KSU? He's such an idiot...... I really dislike this guy. Anyone else?

    Re: Colin COW-Herd

    It's no secret that he's a Pac 10 guy. He freely admits being a Pac 10 homer and a USC fan. Knowing that, it's not surprising to hear his comments.

    I'm a pretty opinionated person but I find myself agreeing with Colin almost all the time. He doesn't just spew crap out of his mouth, he usually has facts to back it up. A lot of the time I find that when people don't like him it's because he's touched a nerve and the truth hurts.

    I normally agree, but how is a Pac-16 "better for everyone" when it CLEARLY damages KU, KSU, ISU, the CU/Baylor holdover, and potentially Nebraska and Mizzou if the Big 10 hangs them out to dry?

    I will say that he sometimes makes good points. But, a lot of the time he is just talking out of his ***. Just listen to his theory that star athletes are more prone to thuggery and misbehavior because they've spent their lives dedicated to sports rather than social graces. He spends plenty of time blathering about stuff he doesn't know anything about.

    Colin isn't shy about is love for college football. Having Texas, Oklahoma, and USC in the same conference would be great for college football. ISU, KU, KSU, and Iowa (I include Iowa to avoid the obvious response) have not been relevant in college football consistently..

    Also, you can't hate him too much if you keep listening.

    Re: Colin COW-Herd

    The problem I have with Colin is he makes one point, and the repeats it for 10 minutes. He might say it a different way, but he just repeats himself over and over for 5 hours a day.

    He does, and he admits it. The reason is, nobody listens to the full show. When somebody tunes in, he wants to be on one of the "big topics."

    Cowherd is what I call a "sports-republican". He likes terms like "tv ratings","money" and "super/mega/big/etc.". He hates the little-guy because they don't bring anything to the table - and he's right. He hated the TCU-Boise St. Fiesta Bowl, and he was right as it drew in one of the lowest viewer ratings for a BCS game. Cowherd is a California guy broadcasting out of Connecticut, but his points do make sense to the major media markets. Yes, expansion could ruin the midwest but besides the state of Iowa and Kansas who will really care?

    I can't stand him and this is one of several reasons...he talks and is just stupid, he works VERY hard for ratings and doesn't hide it, he is too opinionated.

    IMO The Dan Patrick Show is FAR better than any other show, it just has the feelings of guys shooting the breeze talking sports and women, I mean they had a contest last week to decide which SI Swimsuit cover to take down to put the new one of Brooklyn Decker up. I just wish I had directv to watch it.

    I don't have a problem with basically having a two hour show that you repeat. I get that. My bigger problem is he will just keep saying the same thing over and over. He really needs a wing man with him. He needs someone else to talk to and share another opinion.

    This. He would be happy if college football only involved USC, Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio St, Michigan, Notre Dame, Florida & Alabama. He openly says he hates when non-traditional teams are good.

    As far as his sports knowledge, it usually lacks. He can be fun to listen to, but not because of sports info he can give you.

    I love his show, but his ego is too big for a wing man, IMO.

    He's stupid? That's false. Is he opinionated? Yes. Are his opinions often contrary to public perception? Yes.

    The problem people have with him is that he is a big team/program guy. He get's the fact that if the most popular teams do well, the sport as a whole is better off. The other day he was talking about the Knicks and how the NBA cannot have success if the Knicks are bad for 20 years because they are a huge market. That is absolutely true. I like his show because he doesn't talk much about box scores and simply the games and what happened in them. He looks forward and looks at the business side which I find interesting. i probably find myself yelling at him 50% of the time because i think he is wrong, but even then, he makes you think outside of one game or event. He never hides that he is a big market guy. He's a USC fan, a Patriots fan, whatever. He will admit that. If you look at those opinions objectively though, he is right a lot of the time.

    If he was an idiot he would be working the 4 o'clock sports slot in Des Moines. Not the 9 o'clcok on National radio.


    It's all snark from here on out
