Color me shocked, shocked by this:
During a conference call this week previewing the Playoff final, Herbstreit said generating a false sense of an elite team being undersold is nothing new, in fact, former coach and three-time national champion Urban Meyer used to do it all the time, he says.
“Every coach in the country looks for an angle,” Herbstreit said. “We’ve been doing this a long time and Chris (Fowler) and I used to laugh — Urban Meyer in ’06 used to make stuff up. Just throw it out on their hotel meeting rooms and somebody would say something and he’d say ‘Just put it on Herbstreit or ESPN or whatever.’ But it would be a fake quote just to get his team mad.”
It would have been a lot more impressive if Herbie had called Corch out on his bullshit. Shockingly so, even.
