I find the top college announcers to be vastly superior to anybody in the NFL, but Gruden is so obnoxious that I can barely stand to watch the game. He's another one of the ESPN guys that used to be tolerable (if only barely for Gruden), developed a gimmick, then became the gimmick to an extent that you want him to just die. I wonder if he was this obnoxious as a coach.
At one point I commented to my wife last night that I wanted Gruden to be eaten by owls, starting with his tongue. I had just seen a commercial with owls in it. I'm not sure what this means
