Slow day in sports, and nothing to ground breaking here, but my least favorite sports commenatator Collin Cowherd took a little jap at ladies from Ann Arbor. During his interview with Kate Upton, he states, "I have been to Ann Arbor before, and there is not many Kate Upton's there". (I know its hard to match the beauty of Kate, but you get his point). Whats more stupid about the comment is how he thinks she was a Michigan student. Interview here, http://deadspin.com/5885390/kate-upton-hangs-up-on-colin-cowherd-after-he-asks-what-shes-wearing-how-much-she-gets-paid . (States this at :42 secs). The whole interview i thought was just low class and ackward.
OT: Colin Cowherd makes fun of U of M women
"Low class and awkward"? Yup definitely Colin Cowherd alright
No, "low class and ackward". Just like this post.
It seems to me most people like Cowherd the way they like a class clown. He's a great entertainer, but most people would think twice about inviting him to dinner ;)
In other words, I'm not at all surprised.
A great entertainer? I really wouldn't even give him "good" or "ok" entertainer. I only watch Sportsnation for Beadle.
Hard to imagine anyone seeing the guy as entertaining...I find him completely irrelevant, and annoying the rare times when I do hear him.
If you don't take him seriously, then he makes some decent background noise...
I agree though, what bothers me is that he makes connections between various things and incorrectly argues that they're directly related and states other as though he's the first person to come up with his analogies, which is rarely true.
For example, Cowherd is the kind of host that will make a theoretical (not fact-based argument) that the only cause of stadiums being sold out is the current winningness of the team. He won't show any correlation in data or, like, admit to us the fact that there are other contributing factors (tradition, marketing, whatever, this was just a random example).
Broad generalizations without knowing subtleties. And after you read this you could argue that I'm doing the same, but I've listened to enough Cowherd (not often, but enough) to have a valid opinion.
In fact, calling him a clown is a serious insult to clowns. As soon as I hear his name, I switch the station. He looks like a dweeb and acts like an a*%.
One of the most painful interviews I've ever heard. Colin's interview rights should be rescinded.
A sports talk radio guy who is a total douchebag...what's next? Brady Hoke points while Denard produces another epic TD?
PS - Not bagging on your thread, just bagging on sports talk radio morons, of which there are many. Too many.
...except he does it unconvincingly.
no need to make fun of him. his last name is "cowherd" his life must suck as is
Plus, he bears a striking resemblance to a horse, as seen above.
Fvck Him........that's all.
generalize about most everything, sports and non sports. While he sometimes makes a good point, he beats a point to death, resurrects it and beats it to death yet again.
She also hung up on his ass in that interview after he asked her some questions about being unemployed and wearing sweat pants and about how much she makes. She is climbing my cancer list (The Change Up reference if you need it).
As soon as I saw that movie, she was the first one on my list.
Colin Cowherd is a stroke. I wouldn't take much he says seriously. He is just trying to piss people off. He's kind of a low budget Skip Bayless.
in terms of the intelligence of what he says. Sometimes he has really good insights, other times he makes completely assinine generalizations that aren't supportable in the least. Either way, he must be a total jackass to be around.
That's not true, he just talks so much, that some of it is bound to make sense. I find myself agreeing with him too sometimes, but then I realize it's just coincidence.
I listen to him only because I'm in my car a lot. And he's better than Jim Rome.
Cowherd or Rome...talk about a lose-lose situation ha
He probably stole those good insights from somewhere else.
Cowherd should probably just stick to stealing jokes from the M Zone.
According to wikipedia, Colin went to Eastern Washington. Too bad our women are more intelligent than he is
a rather bovine quality about them. I actually saw one of them gnawing at an ear of corn, raw.
We've really taken a hard turn in a bad direction on this board in the last couple of days in terms of misogynistic crap like this or border-line homophobia. The swimsuit issue seems to have turned people into teenagers.
invent the MSU/agricultural joke theme. Have you never told or laughed at an MSU joke? Lighten up.
There's no need to refer to women as "bovine." It denigrates both them and this board.
"obviously" is about the relative attractiveness of co-eds. If you, the p.c monitor and protector of women of this board, do not like the subject matter, why did you come on here?
Most people just said that Cowherd is an idiot. An MSU fan, above, said that Ann Arbor women should be appreciated for their intelligence. Your post and maybe a few others pulled this thread down (though, admittedly, anything to do with Colin Cowherd starts pretty low).
You should find another blog if you want to call women cows. This blog is not RCMB, or whatever it's called. It's one thing to start a thread about something that few people care about. It's another to post something that makes Michigan fans look like a bunch of doucebags.
As for being a p.c. monitor and protector of women, I'm just pointing out common decency. I'm guessing that you would react similarly if someone made a crack about African Americans and fried chicken and watermelons...Or maybe you wouldn't, but either way, grow up.
was about Cowherd making fun of UM women. I have three daughters who are alums, rather pretty in my biased opinion. That's why I got on this post. Why did you get on this post, to monitor and profess that you are above us who make jokes? To top it off you accuse me of being a racist. Nice try professsor.
But anyway, you can't just write something off as a "joke" and call it a day. As with my example above, nobody would get away with a "joke" similar to yours about black people - and they shouldn't...And, yeah, I did check out this thread b/c I thought it might get ugly. The users of this blog police this place pretty heavily, as you've probably noticed.
need people like you to monitor any "ugly" posts. If such posts are so heavily policed as you say, why do we need you? I expect so you can feel soooo good about yourself, protecting women and minorities.
Washington D.C., for example, has a police force, but people still commit crimes...Further:
A. I don't see how I was protecting minorites;
B. I'm just sorry that you don't see how calling the women of MSU "bovine" is an ugly thing to do and that the board has taken a dip lately in terms of our brah-ishness.
Cowherd has had negative things to say about us before. This is not a first.
Cowherd is awesome. He is able to consistently troll fanbases with startling results.
Hay....the former lead singer of Men at Work?
Michigan may not have the girls Arizona State has, but Arizona State doesn't give out the degrees that U of M does.
I'll take the degree.
The degree GETS you the girls (it's the size of the degree that matters, after all).
I'm sure Colin is pulling in some high quality ass whenever he feels like.
Now that Craig James isn't stalking around the building with a machete, The Herd can finally appreciate some time with a callgirl.
i thought it was a plow shear...
Colin Cowherd is an idiot. There is no point in making a thread each time he does something stupid. The Internet would literally be 99% Colin Cowherd threads if this were the case.
He should know better. I believe his agent is a Michigan grad and his wife is also from Michigan (not sure if Sparty).
Wouldn't clinical psychologists declare someone who talks to himself for hours every day and makes no sense, borderline insane? Sometimes, I just start listening to static or trying to tune in distant AM stations in the middle of the day to find alternatives to his blathering idiocy.
dude, learn how to spell before you mock someone for spelling
Cowherd is the "bad boy" at ESPN. You never know what he'll say next. He's a real loose cannon, that guy. Don't tell him he can't wear jeans with a suit jacket... he's a maniac!
Just another ESPN talking head who has nothing to say, and the biggest reason why I swore off sports talk radio in favor of blogs like this.
Well, there aren't too many Kate Uptons anywhere... So... His point?
I listen to cowherder is b/c Rome Is soooo bad. Btw, either she didn't interview well or herd was very awkward.
was over herd sheeps were afraid of zippers
Okay Collin, I'll play. You are stupid, ugly, obnoxious and have no talent. See, I can be witty too.
Srsly, the ass with a pigs snout is making judgements on whether girls are pretty? Um ok Arnold.
I have been a UM fan my whole life. My dream was to go here ever since I was a little kid, but unfortunately I messed around in high school and had to end up transferring in from CMU. Now, having heard my whole life about how the female student body here are a bunch of cows, I was a little worried. When I arrived, however, I understood that these assertions have no merit and never had any merit. Maybe sparty has a few more, but there is no way you can tell me there is any sizable difference. And that's not even bring the whole brains thing into the picture.
So you know that moment when you realize you would do anything for a shot with a girl?
best commerical ever! It has everything you want. Sports, hot chick, comedy, video games, chance to win millions...
when its all said and done, who is the bigger D-bag.....Cowherd......or Valenti?
I dont think either has much in the way of talent....but i think Valenti is much harder to listen too.
Cowherd was misquoted. What he actually said was, "I've been to Ann Arbor often, and I never got laid once. I had to go to East Lansing."
The guy is a lame-ass middle-aged wannabe athlete who's just pretty enough to be on TV. While he's entitled to his opinion it doesn't change the fact that he's a douche (not Dantonio-level douche of course but he's climbing fast).
Colin is an idiot, and as referenced earlier, a thief of intellectual property. Fuck him
Never heard this guy. A healthy majority of sports talkers I have heard are meatheads, so I ignore the genrre. You know you've got a bad sports talk show when a drunk caller actually elevates the conversation.
and Cowherd is nuts.
I have never understood this business about UM women being unattractive, and I have been all over Europe, the US, and the Caribbean, admiring women everywhere I go. No one would ever accept such an assertion in the realm of statistics (general observation about a population of 30, plus thousand people), let alone in football.
If you're into silicon and blond hair dye, cool; not me. But it's wierd just wierd that people say this routinely here, then jump all over Cowherd.
Kate hung up on him after she had finally had enough of his creepiness.
Edit: Yup. Definitely stated in the first paragraph of your article. My bad.
Colin Cowherd is a Douche Nozzle!!!
Expect an agnry call from the in-house counsel at Summer's Eve--you just insulted a segment of their product line.
HA! I just busted out laughing really hard at work. that was fantastic!
Every one of us who attended U of M, and many who haven't, have also made fun of the female situation at Michigan.
There are certainly attractive women. You don't have 20,000 +/- females without a substantial amount of talent. But, there is also a fair amount that prefer (or need to) focus on their brains over the looks.
Note to our female members. This certainly holds true for the men at Michigan as well. You just don't hear about it as women aren't as shallow as men when it comes to discussing the physical attributes of the opposite sex.
Pretty much this.
I'm as proud an Mgrad as any, but we can't act like this is news. Not that there aren't hot girls in Ann Arbor but most of them go to Huron. (Zinnng I kid I kid)
But seriously though that whole Michigan ugly coeds thing was around when I was on campus in the early 2000's. Not that there weren't cute ones too. But the stereotype isn't new.
Also not new is that Colin is a douche and somewhat of a hack, though a master troll no doubt.
but women are sure as hell shallow enough when it comes to discussing physical attributes of the same sex. women are ruthless...
On behalf of all the women in Ann Arbor, I want to sincerely apologize to Colin Cowherd for not dropping our Physics textbooks, falling to our knees, and offering him a free blowjob on his last visit.
free blowjob, isn't that an oxymoron?
Sportsnation is worse than Rome is Burning, PTI, and that other show with Tony Riali (sp) that is all.
Cowherd is my punishment on days I get a late start to work. If I'm on time I get Mike and Mike during my commute, if I'm late I get him and it's just all downhill from there...
Didn't his wife go to Michigan?
He maybe a d-bag, but Cowherd is probably right. I'm willing to bet that there aren't many girls named Kate Upton in Ann Arbor. The only one I know of is on the cover of SI in a swimsuit. I'm also willing to bet that there aren't many Brooklyn Deckers or Gisele Bündchens there either. I'll bet there are a lot of Jessica Smiths though.
