    It only would make me happy if the conversation that preceded this press release included someone from the Big 10 saying"...you and the horse you rode in on."

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    Look at Gottliebs remarks in the transcript. He's very careful in the opening paragraph, it's when he tries to make a story out of nothing, that Northern Iowa was on the bubble and thus the ref could be in a conflict of interest, that he stops being careful. Reminiscent of "talk radio" politics. It's ALL about the need for product. ESPN needs a ton of product to keep on the air 24 - 7. The storm this creates is good for another segment or two on some of their other shows.

    Shouldn't this be in the basketball forum?

    Yes.

    ESPN is becoming a tabloid network. What happened to sports 24/7/365? The network is so far away from its original Mission Statement that it has to be unrecognizable to its founders.

    Amen to that brother! About 10 years ago I used to joke in class that I was so old I could remember when MTV actually played music videos. It appears that in the near future I may be able to joke that I am so old I remember when ESPN actually showed sporting events.
     
  8. dont they have poker...
    :roll2:
     
  9. espn is the worst network ever, but you do have to wonder y the big 10 let that guy ref the game. i think they should look into it cuz that was an obvious foul.
