Colin Dunlap: Jac Collinsworth ‘Brings Nothing’

“There’s not one thing that Jac Collinsworth does during those games that I go — or anything that he’s ever done that I’ve watched — and I’ve thought ‘that guy’s good’.”

The New York Post reported Sunday that NBC will officially pair Jac Collinsworth and Jason Garrett for their Notre Dame broadcasts in 2022, and the reaction has been lukewarm at best. 93.7 The Fan’s Colin Dunlap and Dorin Dickerson both shared their less than stellar opinions on Collinsworth during Monday’s edition of The Fan Morning Show.

“I am not the only one who thinks Jac Collinsworth keeps falling up because of his surname,” Dunlap said. “So immediately that gets out there and the first response to that tweet on NBC’s official account is ‘Call me crazy, but I find it hard to believe the best person for the job just happened to be Cris Collinsworth’s kid.’ I have watched this guy do sideline reports. I have watched this happened, and it’s not a personal shot. It’s more so watching him professionally. He brings nothing. There’s not one thing that Jac Collinsworth does during those games that I go — or anything that he’s ever done that I’ve watched — and I’ve thought ‘that guy’s good’.”

“Usually in a circumstance — what’s the word? Nepotism? — usually in a circumstance like this, we would have saw him on some lower games in college or something first. And then working his way up…” Dickerson said.

“Why isn’t he doing San Jose and UNLV,” Dunlap interrupted.

“Exactly. But to go right to NBC and Notre Dame? That’s ridiculous,” Dickerson replied.

“I watch him and I cringe,” said Dunlap. “He tries that little quirky…he doesn’t do it for me. He might be the nicest guy ever. 27-years-old and doing Notre Dame play-by-play.”

Collinsworth and Garrett partnered together for the 2022 USFL slate on NBC. Collinsworth also has previously announced Atlantic 10 basketball and the Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Tournament on NBCSN.

It’s not the first time Dunlap has criticized the 27-year-old broadcaster. In January, Dunlap said there was “no one more underqualified” and said Collinsworth was “stunningly bad” on television.

The dawn of a new sports radio signal in Dallas has come and who else to be the first voice you hear, but the Old Grey Wolf Mike Rhyner.

97.1 the Eagle stopped their regular programming late Monday morning and began stunting, the technique radio stations use to separate listeners from old programming into new programming. They began by playing songs with the word “freak” in them then went into a continuous loop of “The Waiting is the Hardest Part” by Tom Petty until 3p CT. Then, a voiceover detailing the Eagle’s history transitioned into the voice that Dallas-Forth Worth residents have gotten to know so well, Mike Rhyner.

“So, where were we?” began Rhyner.

He would go on to relive his final moments at The Ticket in Dallas. He said he was getting his “head around being a Paw Paw” before getting a call from Ben Rogers of the Ben and Skin Show and thus an idea for The Freak began to take shape.

After that, the show’s intro music played and Rhyner welcomed in Mike Sirois and before you knew it, the guys were wondering about a quarterback controversy in Dallas. 97.1 The Freak is off and running.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”
