Does a Compliment from a Douche in a Forest Make Noise?
While I am always on the fence about being interested or taking national attention as an utmost important thing to tell my diary about at night ("Omg but then we had meatloaf for lunch again bleh") but when Michigan is not getting hit in the head by a chair thrown by Bob Knight, who apparently believes PSU and Auburn were more deserving, they're getting ESPN praise in the form of... Colin Cowherd?
Michigan was chosen by Cowherd as his dark horse (or is it darkhorse?) for the tournament. Besides the normal Duke, UCLA, Purdue fluff, he was quick to point out UM could have beaten UConn, a 1-seed, and that he could legitimately see them making it to the elite eight. What was nice to hear, though, was him acknowledge the coaching behind the effort.
What does this mean? Absolute shit. The man is a walking "morning talk show radio zoo OHMANELISHADUSHKUISTHEHAWTEST *cue spring boi-oi-oing*" - complete with "Breakfast of Champions - which cereal will win" bracket - but he's also been a huge d-bag to the football program. A reader was quick to point out his dark horse (darkhorse?) - fuck it, I'm referring to it as Darko from now on - has always played Clemson for the past couple years. Let's just say that's true.
The question remains: even if we are everyone's Darko, does it make noise in the Palace when we miss all our shots and lose by 15?
Because that's what a Darko does. Let's be
The Answer Billups.
It looks like we finally have our first "St. Patrick's Day Drunken MgoDiary entry."
Say what you want about Cowherd being a pompous, arrogant, self-righteous ass...because he is. But he often times right when he talks about sports and how it relates to most people. Hate him or love him he tends to be spot on. He could be Jim Rome and nobody wants to be Rome.
Cowherd is an easy target for Michigan fans, especially Michigan football fans. The same can be said for Herbstreit. But they both have proven more often than not that they know their shit. Love them or hate them these guys are not as biased as most fans think.
I too used to be one of the Cowherd haters till I swallowed my pride and started to listen to what he said. The Blue fans that he tends to bash are the same ones that we complain about here all the time. He truly does know what he's talking about and his no holds barred approach is a refreshing breath of air on the network when you consider the the bull we have to put up with from Corso and Vital.
sadly couldn't go until later because i had to take the dog to the groomer and my pet to the veterinarian. zing!
