    Another great example of just how stupidly terrible ESPN is at all forms of journaiism:

    Today on the Scott Van Pelt ESPN radio show, Frank Beamer was on and Van Pelt's d-bag assistant asks Beamer, "So, how's Geno Smith (WestVa's QB) looking?"

    Beamer: "I think you mean Logan Thomas."

    DBag: "No... I mean Geno Smith."

    (awkward silence)

    Van Pelt: "No... I think you mean Logan Thomas."

    Embarassing. What idiots.

    Good read on ESPNs silliness but none other SI: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/20...gefootball.television/index.html?sct=cf_wr_a2

    I've always hated Craig James since hes had a hard on for Paterno since '82. Even with that said, he is just overall terrible and I agree with every mention of his name in this article.

    Also some good nuggets on TV networks we were talking about during hte A&M hoopla (which wont go away).

    LOL even more funnier:

    "Feldman said his contract was up and an executive at ESPN questioned his “credibility.” They at first offered him three years and a raise. Then they changed it to one year and no raise.
    “If you’re a problem for them, you can’t exist in that world,” Feldman said. He said when your employers aren’t truthful … “it’s a problem.”
    Feldman talked about ESPN broadcaster Craig James’ role in getting Mike Leach fired and more. Feldman said James lied about hiring a public relations field.
    "

    Also, Terrelle Pryor scored a 7 on his 1st Wonderlic Test lol.
