    I still think, almost 11 years later, that Nick Saban lives rent free in this guy's head.

    Cowherd again picked against the Crimson Tide, stating that they’ll suffer their first loss of the season when they travel to Auburn for the Iron Bowl on Nov. 25.

    I'm reminded of a fellow I knew many decades ago as an Undergrad college student. His "theory" was that if you stand on a street corner and ask every female that passes if they would have "relations" with you, you might get slapped in the face a lot, but you will eventually find someone who says yes. And even if you only get 1% positive responses, if you ask enough women, even 1% adds up.

    Same deal with mindless "shock jock" personalities like this guy. Logic dictates that no one wins all their games forever, so if you ALWAYS predict that Alabama will lose, EVENTUALLY you will be "right" - if only due to persistence.

    I'd actually be more worried if he predicted that we'd WIN the game.....

    Sounds like Alabama is buried six feet under--dead--gone, gone, gone

    Honestly, I don't think he dislikes Alabama. Both he and John Katz picked us to beat Clemson last year.
    What Cowherd faces is bosses saying "keep those ratings up or be gone".
    If he said, "Bama is the best and nobody has a chance against them", he'd lose the majority of his listenership.
    An Ohio State fan doesn't want to hear that proclamation. It takes away their hope.
    An Oklahoma fan isn't going to tune in to listen to that. They don't won't to hear it.
    I know we as Bama fans hate hearing a prediction that we're going to get beat, but remember, every other fan base in America absolutely loves it. That, unfortunately, is who they're trying to reach because of the ad dollars.
    There's way more of "them" than they're is of "Us"....and that means more dollars.
    I'm just saying, in reality, that's all it is.

    This may be true, but with Bama win loss record last ten years how dumb is it to pick aginst them all the time? This is the sad state of sports TV and most TV. Ratings matter more than content. And like so many they play to the lowest common denominator. Play to the stupid people who still think that Saban is leaving, the heck with facts LOL

    Just goes to show how long it has been since I watched him or ESPN, I skip most sports shows now. They all look for shock value, not accuracy in reporting. They all play to get a few more viewers by being outrageous. Sad state of affairs in most of so called sports or any news today. I scan a few online sites for Bama news and watch games. Otherwise I ignore most sports news outlets. I used to enjoy sport shows to get info, they just try to out hype each other for ratings now. You learn nothing from them now.

    He still has a job? I learned long ago to never pay attention to him. He isn’t worth a click on the link.

    Then I take back what I said about ESPN if they fired him. I watch very little sports TV any more it is all so over hyped crap. I watch lots of games but not the talk and pregame shows as most are useless for any real info. I had no idea he had been canned and moved to new network LOL. Guess I should not comment on folks who I do not follow enough to know where they are working DOH

    Cowherd is like a broken calendar. He's gets it right 1 out of 365.

    Re: Cowherd Guarantees Auburn Victory over Bama

    Here's the thing - I believe that Alabama will win and can explain why. I can point to personnel advantages, schemes, coaches, etc that give Alabama a decided edge. But only a fool with an ego too big to measure would guarantee that one college football team will beat another when both are talented and have everything to gain with a victory. TV show or not - this guy is an absolute tool.
