Rich Rod will join him on his program at 12:30/11:30central.
I'm pretty pissed about it. I have to work in MLB from 4-5:30 and am going to miss it, all the while being right next to it.
I listened to his show briefly this morning. Thought he said he was live at Ingalls mall from 10-1, and that they would be taping SportsNation at 3-4 and airing it at 4, so you could make the taping of it I believe. If rain doesn't hold off he said they'd go inside to the theater, but he didn't state which one (maybe Hill Auditorium?).
Edit: Maybe it is live now that I look at their twitterpage.
You do not say those things about Michelle Beadle! She represents all that is right in this world.
Cowherd is despicable and a plagiarizer but Beadle rocks
Cowherd was talking about Babe Ruth playing in 1908 and said U of M was barely founded then. Someone in the crowd yells "(U of M was) founded in 1817!"
Cowherd then sheepishly admits "officially founded in 1817," and then moves on after a few seconds of silence. I really need to turn this off until 12:30 when RR comes on.
i don't think ruth was around in '08. ty cobb was taking the tigers to a world series though - lost to the cubbies (their last ws title).
Cowherd is talking up how stunning the campus looks.
When does Brian get his own show?
To hope that Coach punches Cowherd right in the face?
I think not.
He started talking about Vick. Then he tried to localize the topic by saying that Denard was a wild card to compensate for lackluster personnel compared to OSU. Like this is some science experiment or something.
If you all are like me and can't be in your car for Rich's 12:30 interview, here's a link:

Please give him a warm Ann Arbor welcome, you know the kind, the one we give opposing goalies at Yost.
How much you wanna bet me that if he keeps losing everyone with his opinions, he'll play the Beadle card to calm everyone down and get them back on his side?
But I actually like Cowherd. I don't get to listen to him often but I'm definitely streaming it at work today.
He is the most (brutally) honest national radio host that I'm aware of, which I appreciate.
I don't dislike him because he has hated on Michigan in the past. I dislike him because he sits behind his microphone and dispenses little nuggets of wisdom as if he is some sort of ancient sage oracle. Complete BS. He literally referred to himself as "a liferaft of sanity amidst a sea of misery" at the end of his show the other day. I only heard it because I was waiting for SVP to start.
True this. He'll also state something the he thinks is excellent material, then find five different ways to repeat it with different analogies for the next ten minutes, followed by a phone call from someone who disagrees with him, whom he will cut off in mid-sentence as they argue poorly one of the better points of his arguement. Then he we say, "these are the types of mouth-breathers who disagree with me. C'mon, get out of your mom's basement."
Anyone with an actual arguement who disagrees with him is never given airtime. Unless it's Herbstreit, in which case Colin will backpeddle and, "you have a good point..."
He's a real intellectual.
But he also says incredibly dumb and arrogant things on his show with great frequency. Hence, I neither watch nor listen to him anymore.
I do like how he compares things to real life by analogy. He reminds me of a lounge lizard from a really uppity frat where guys are all geared towards talking intellectually. Like that preppy group in "Animal House". It is a nice change of pace from my dive bar routine.
But I gotta take him in small doses.
You just called him a gas bag then you go on to say "he isn't at bad". Dude pick a side and stay there, all your flip flopping to please the mgocommunity is getting tired.
Thank you! He also needs to get rid of that pic. He's scaring everyone.
he should change it to something that was not himself...
This isn't match.com, it's a football blog filled with mostly male users. I never understood why he used a picture of himself for an avatar.
I would expect more of the same today.
I would play the Beadle card if dealt it... just sayin'...
Colin just said that there is a reason why DQ is not doing very well in Anchorage(Alaska). What a BS, i have lived in Anchorage for several years and DQ is doing great. Cant wait to hear RR in 30 min. Go Blue!
...if he's going down the "RR isn't a good fit in AA" with this spiel about the Rays.
I kept waiting for that too.
He actually ended up taking Rich's program and saying that it gave us an advantage for being so "contrarian".
We got the steady diet of "I am buying stock in Michigan football."
per wikipedia: Born Oct 23 1975. Is an avid dog lover and there is no mention of any relationship. Favorite team houston astros.
bottom line guys: start walking an adorable puppy around campus and randomly walk into her while wearing a astros shirt.
You're in like flint.
That the phrase is "In Like Flynn." The Flint thing goes back to a Coburn movie in the 60's that tried to play off the phrase, and is often mistaken for the original, claimed to refer to Errol Flynn's famous acquittal in a statutory rape case.
I can't say I realized that at all. Will probably never use the phrase again now.
So therefore I will create a new phrase " in like Drob to in endzone"
RR on the show after the commerical break.
I almost choked on the irony of it all. Also, would it have killed RR to have called Sparty "Little Brother".
LOL. He is not a guy you can ever turn to for bulletin board material.
It would have been cool though.
for whoever gets beadle to join all of us at ricks tonight
Charley's > Brown Jug? Not in this universe.
Ashley's and Brown Jug are better than Rick's and Charley's. Anyone who disagrees is probably a fratboy married to a sorostitute.
but where else do they have coat rooms you can take her too after a night of grinding ...
but I would blow 100 bucks on buying drinks for Beadle and myself if that were to happen at Rick's.
You won't be seeing them anywhere in A2 tonight.
I stopped in twice today to watch the taping. First was between 10 and 11 when he rambled about the Yankees and such, then he said RR would be there at 12:30 so I made sure to come back then. The second time there was a much larger number of people there and the crowd was more into it. The RR interview went well, and I managed to give him a handshake and a "Go Blue" as I left to head back to Markley.
That brought back some (redacted) memories.
I sure hope you're a freshman, unless they've done some serious upgrades in the XX years since I lived there.
There was definitely a "Lil Boosie" t-shirt on SN in maize and blue. And it was awesome. I like that they appear to be in front of Angell Hall or Rackham.
