It doesn't top what ESPN is still trying to do with the barely lucid Lee Corso.
It’s bad and getting worse. God love the guy but he’s 83 and has never recovered fully from a stroke.
David Pollack is the heir apparent and it’s telling that he occupies Corso’s seat for half the show. He’s very patient - but also very good and my guess is that the ESPN suits have told him he has the gig when it comes open - otherwise he would be a hot property for Fox or CBS to poach.
Herbstreit does his best to coax Corso’s words out of him and finish his sentences but enough is enough. Putting on a silly hat in the last minute of a show doesn’t outweigh the 2 hours that go before it.
