I enjoyed Clay Travis at the start of his regular morning show, but he's worn thin on me.

While I didn't always find his sports takes all that impressive, the BSK would carry on a conversation with the callers and not just let them talk for five seconds and then go on his own rant...as far too many do today, which makes most of them worth crap.

My favorite was the late Geoff Sindelar on WTAM, especially back when he did weekends. He would converse with the callers like you were sitting with him at a bar over a beer. And his sports knowledge was off the charts good. A great guy, too. Met him many times. The only weakness in his game was the love of collectibles, hence too many callers would call just to get his opinion on their junk/memorabilia.

Ah, yes ... NEO's 'Dean of Talk Radio' on The Talk of Akron (even though WNIR is located only about 2 miles down the road from the Kent campus, across from the Walmart). Mostly listened while attending KSU, back in the day. Gotta love those small stations and local personalities!

Right or wrong, I thought the BSK was a straight-shooter. Always singing tOSU fight song (and making up lyrics) was also good for a laugh!

To me he's the Coast to Coast AM of sports talk radio

All conspiracy theories and 'I'm smarter than you' programming. Zero substance at all.

Amen. There's only so much "edginess" you can take before you sift through the BS to see if there's anything worth the search. There's not. Not for me, at least.

WinstonSmith has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I still find his takes and topics he will address to be refreshing most of the time.

I agree. However, I think he spends too much time harping on the same topics.

I agree, at least once a week I'll change the station for a couple minutes because he's been talking about the same subject for too long.

Yeah, no idea how anyone stands Clay Travis. He figured out he could make a lot of money by tying as many sports stories as possible back to some sort of culture war stuff. And I'm sure it's been highly profitable for him, so I get the motivation, but I don't see what's entertaining about it.

Then accusing Schiano of enabling child molestation all because he didn't want him to coach his alma mater would be a deal breaker for me even if I found him otherwise entertaining. Doesn't get much more scummy than that.
