College Football Live: Terrelle Pryor Chats With Kirk Herbstreit

by HD Handshoe

As much as I rip on ESPN for their love-fest with Tim Tebow and the SEC in general, occasionally, they do get put their heads on straight up there in Bristol, CT. from time to time!

Such was the case on College Football Live yesterday (May 5, 2009) when the interview series they have been conducting with some of the nation's top QB's landed in Columbus to talk to Super-Sophomore Terrelle Pryor.

In case you missed it, analyst Shaun King (who I absolutely love on this show) boldly stated that TP has the potential to become the best QB to have EVER played college football!

I think Kevin Negandi's jaw about hit the floor when King said that and Joe Schad agreed (with King). Afterall, Negandi hosts the show quite often and Tebow is CFL's and ESPN's golden poster child for everything that is right in the world.

Not surprisingly, Herbie didn't say it. I bet Herbstreit even twitched a little when he watched that back on TV and heard King's comments. Sometimes I wonder if he forgets where he himself played his college football at...

Desmond Howard, Mark May, and even King don't hold back their blatant homerism for UM, Pitt and Tulane respectively, but sometimes, Herbstreit and even Robert Smith almost seem brainwashed by ESPN to be embarrassed to be former Buckeyes....

But, I will digress and call a cease fire (for now), as this is actually, for a change, a positive story by ESPN featuring a Buckeye.

So without further ado, here's the Pryor interview—Enjoy!
