OT: Colin Cowherd makes fun of U of M women

Submitted by GoBlueGB on February 15th, 2012 at 8:03 PM

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.
