Ugh, how does Herbstreet talk for 4 quarters without ever taking a breath?

I think Herbstreet is very knowledgeable and informative. I just wish he would take a breath and learn to talk less. I had to mute the television for the most of the 3rd quarter and all of the 4th of last nights game. So wish there was a way to keep the crowd and stadium noise, but block the sound of the announcers. I know it's just me getting old and I probably should have been making sure those kids weren't on my lawn, but sports aren't supposed to be that loud.

I assume you are talking about this guy. Heh, when I first Googled him, I was searching for "Herb Street." There are quite a few such streets in the USA.

One also gets quite a few hits searching for "Herbstreit criticism."

It's not Herbstreit"s fault. If he was in a 3 man booth, he'd be more tolerable. But the 2 man broadcast means you'll hear him half the time, minimum. He isn't as irritating on College Gameday because he is sharing the stage.

Danielson is in a 2 man booth on CBS and he isn't even close to being the windbag Kirk is. Oh and I'm not sure I want a 3 man booth on ESPN. That usually leads to the hairboys referring to themselves with corny nicknames and competing to top the other.

I refuse to watch college pregame/halftime shows.

GD speaks just as much as Kirk. You probably just agree w/Gary more. Danielson's delivery is better. He comes off more as enjoying the game while Kirk's comments sound like he's enjoying himself speak.

Ah, I grew up north and live in Louisiana. There is no way on earth I agree with or should I say enjoy what Danielson says......that would mean I go to bed every night chanting SEC SEC SEC and dream only of SEC speed.

I think my house is an equal distance between Vanderbilt, Univ of Alabama, Univ of Georgia, and Univ of Tenn.. All year long I hear about the SEC and football. I am a little partial to Tennessee but it was fun reading their football forum today at volnation.com.
Back on topic I miss Howard Cosell and Don Meridith. I can not believe that I said that I miss Howard.
I use to listen at night on my transitor to Harry Carey and Jack Buck broadcast the Cardinal games. That was great.

I don't like his fanboy routine. But in fairness, that is all he sees and is surrounded by. And CBS owns their TV rights. So bias is inevitable.

I agree. I actually enjoy the CBS broadcasts.
