    Herbstreit is a bit of a osu weenie, but he does seem like a genuinely decent guy. I don't find him particularly knowledgable or insightful, but he's also not a dimwit (liked Desmond). If you are offended by a color guy calling out bad tackling or poor QB play you need to stick to the Gator network radio broadcasts and never stray.

    Didn't hear much of the broadcast, too much yelling at my house.

    I will say, the ESPN production was below standard. More than once I was looking for a replay that didn't come.

    Not ESPN, but still can't believe that second fumble wasn't reviewed or at least explained why it wasnt UFs ball.

    I gotta admit I’m with u. It came across as a fair observation to me but I tend to tune the commentary out often anyway

    Is this a serious post? Banned for accurately pointing out that our defenders on some of those plays looked like they had never played football in their lives? The effort on some of those tackles was absolutely pitiful and describing it as “unwilling to tackle” was probably being generous.

    Ever notice we get one of these silly "herbie sucks" threads every year only to see that most fans actually like the dude?

    I was a little agitated & more than annoyed by that Herbstreit comment as well when the game suddenly swung the other way in Miami's favor. There were numerous times throughout the game that there were missed tackles from players of both teams. It was also the first game and very early in the season - misplays often happen during this time due to the lack of necessary practice time before games.

    For instance, during Miami's attempt to tackle Kadaris Toney on his long touchdown run, I did not hear Herbstreit berate any of the Hurricane defenders in their efforts to try to tackle Toney.

    When Miami's running back (Deejay Dallas) was in their wildcat formation (I initially thought that it was Miami's quarterback who had scored on that long run), Dallas happened to make some 'juke' moves (similar to KT) to elude Florida's defenders.

    The 'juking' by the ball carrier made it more difficult for a defender to take the proper angle when they attempted to tackle. For an outside viewer, it would appear that the defenders were hesitant in tackling the offensive player when in reality the defender could not commit to the action of tackling or take the proper form of tackling (in CJ Henderson's case) and by then it was too late.

    And
    I have honestly never gotten the feeling of him being an osu homer. Pretty sure that why he was ran out of Columbus , him being fair and balanced about osu etc. the only time I’ve ever thought it almost was present was the proposed rematch in 06 but he wasn’t the only one that thought that. I like danielson doing color more as the years have gone by , he’s grown on me. And I do find gd to be knowledgeable

    This. I'm not a Herbstreit fan and he says a lot of dumb crap but calling for him to be banned, especially on the basis of a comment that was actually correct, is insane.

    And Desmond’s “ do I need to choke a bitch” still has me crackin up 24 hours later. Says it on national tv and at the magic kingdom no less. The crown jewel of the parent company. The symmetry in that is astounding

    TuneIn app. Then search GRN or WRuF.
    You will have to adjust the slider to get the stream timing lined up with TV.

    I like to listen to the TV guys but switch over during halftime and timouts to get some commentary/injury updates...and rewind for big plays from Mick.

    So the missed tackles was because they didn’t want to? Really?
    Maybe poor technique but calling out Henderson’s effort as not wanting it was over the line for a TV game announcer.
