Can someone explain to me what the deal with Jesse Palmer is? The former Florida quarterback and girly-acting ESPN studio host appears to have a serious grudge against Auburn. For three weeks running on the Sunday BCS Countdown Show, Palmer has done his best to discredit Auburn.
On tonight's show he went into a two-minute attack on Auburn and said the Tigers shouldn't play for a title if Cam Newton is ruled ineligible. Fellow host Craig James laughed off the seriousness of his tone. It's one thing to take a stand, but his body language shows something much deeper.
I've never liked him personally. There's something about a grown man crying about love on national television that's just weird. Plus he's Canadian. Canadians talking about college football is unnatural. It's the same reason I don't like John Saunders.
The CBC wouldn't hire me to talk hockey. I'm just saying...
