This guy is the most ill-informed idiot in the country when it comes to talking college sports. The guy bashes ANYTHING south of Illinois. And would absolutely leave an undefeated SEC team out if he had a vote.
He just ran down Notre Dame's schedule talking about how it was SOOOOO much tougher than anything an SEC team would have to traverse.
Said Miami was a "great name" and they had to beat teams like "Michigan St and BYU" - completely ignoring that all the teams on ND's schedule to this point suck (save an average Stanford team). And also ignoring that ND doesn't have to play a conference championship game.
Typical of a guy who couldn't tell you the records of any of those teams. I wouldn't hate him for being an ass, if he was an informed ass. But his bias is ALWAYS present, even when he has no knowledge of what he speaks.
Lord I hope Oklahoma boat races ND Saturday.

Lou holtz is a million times worse.. Cant stand that guy
Plus 1 to you just for the title!
not to mention that Stanford actually won that game against ND
“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
Guy's, Guy's settle down. Ya got to take it with a grade of saw!
The thing that gets me about Wilbon is when he tries to act like he's some kind of hard ass on PTI. Dude tries to act like he's the drill sergeant from Full Metal Jacket or something when he's clearly an over the hill, overweight doughboy.
While I would love nothing more then to embarass Brian Kelly and Touchdown Jesus in a NC game, we just won't get the opportunity. ND will lose this week and lose again to USC to close the season. Anyone with half a brain has seen ND start to struggle in recent weeks, and while they have "found a way to win"....it's not because of being a great team. Let them talk, it will end soon and the USC bandwagon will be back in 4wd.
Downvote me I don't care. Wilbon and Kornheiser are my two favorite ESPN personalities. Wilbon has a northern bias, but it doesn't take away from the fact that he is entertaining.
I love to watch all things college football. However, I gave up on watching that show or listening to guys like him long ago. I refuse to watch. I finally realized if you watch, you only get upset, and I also realized that people watching is the reason the idiots are able to keep getting air time.
I love the show and love Kornheiser but Wilbon gets on my nerves sometimes. He can be entertaining and funny but I agree with an above poster...sometimes he tries to act all tough which is annoying. He said himself he likes to ride Saban but was very complimentary of the way Saban handled the Fanning suplex. He's ok in my book, definitely not my favorite though. My favorite PTI/Around the Horn guys:
1. Tony Kornheiser
2. Tony Reali
3. Tim Cowlishaw
4. Israel Gutierez
5. Michael Smith
yeah, well, we'll see when they get pounded this weekend.
I wouldn't care if Wilbon was an unabashed homer and acknowledged that he doesn't follow college sports. But he speaks to college sports without any knowledge of it at all.
And EVERYTHING he says is based on stereotypes. That's why he was speaking to ND's schedule as if they were just beating the world. BYU, Miami, etc. Great names, crappy teams. He ended with "Miami's a good team - better than anybody the SEC will play this year"
Now that my blood pressure is up...I literally haven't watched an episode since watching the one where we comparing Au to ND...until a week or so ago and he went on this tangent about how the SEC is still soft bc "We beat the SEC!" The "We" in that sentence is freaking Northwestern and the SEC powerhouse they beat....FREAKIN VANDY!!! Dude is so much worse than Lou Holtz...at least Lou is openly a homer...although almost as nauseating to listen to
ND talk comes to an end Saturday in Norman.
He also said RG3 was the MVP so far this year in NFL. I mean..really?
On ND...They have the same type of schedule every year. They arent in a conference so who would these ND lovers want them to play?!?? When you arent in a conference you schedule who you wanna schedule. When they lose this weekend, and they will lose BIG, they will still say a 1 loss ND is more attractive. It will never end for ND. I hope they run the table along with us and finally we will get our chance to ambush ND on the biggest stage humanly possible! U want ratings?? Bama vs ND in Miami. As Eli would say, "No Lo Contendre"
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
That would be an incredible game IMO.
From a ratings standpoint. I truly believe the game would be over at halftime. This ND team is garbage and will be completely exposed this weekend. I normally only post my locks on here and btw Im killing it so far this year! This is just another winning lock, OU 38-10
