I like Mike & Mike and I like Cowherd. Though I get most of Cowherd’s show through his Thundering Herd podcast. At least with Cowherd for example, he didn’t go around making excuses for ESPN or Penn State or Paterno when the Jerry Sandusky story broke. Cowherd even choked up on the air after fielding a call from a sexual abuse victim. He didn’t know it was a victim beforehand, but it came out during the course of the phone call and he just let the guy just get it out of his system.
Cowherd is from a small town on the Washington coast and went to Eastern Washington University (my school many years ago) and has no personal ties to either Syracuse or Penn State. The same cannot be said of many others at ESPN, many of whom are probably worried about ESPN’s willingness to let this story go unreported for a decade.
