Your exactly right maybe he is a "frontrunner".  He has moved around the country doing sports talk radio.  As you said, "root for whatever team resides in the city he is employed."  I guess my question to you is, "what do you expect?" It’s his job.  Although, if you have ever once listened to their show Scott as well as Mike will openly root for their favorite teams.  Scott is a fan of the Minnesota Vikings and Mike is a fan of the White Sox and Bears.  They both moved to Columbus and say regularly that they both "Adopted" the Buckeyes and over time have become fans.  Which honestly, I believe them as its nearly impossible to live in the city of Columbus and not at some point over time become OSU fans. What do you think deep down Mike is an Illinois fan or Scott is a Golden Gopher fan.  Give me a break.  Them like many others who move to this city where college sports or football is not popular adopt the buckeyes and eventually become fans.  For instance Mike is a season ticket holder for OSU basketball games.  This is why people like me and many others like this show.  When you listen to these guys they never give you any b.s. They say what is exactly on their minds. In this situation it got Scott in trouble.  When the bears and Vikings lose you hear about it on Monday.  Honestly their reactions are hilarious.  I find them funny.  Maybe you or others don't.  There is an easy reaction to this: Don't listen to them if you get offended easily.  Let em' Live.

My GUYS!!!! I love this show. Herbstreit is a joke. He does a show once a week during college football season. He should remember where he came from and stop acting like he is a broadcasting god.  This is entertainment people and sometimes people say things that sound harsh but when it comes down to it they are joking. Howard is a public figure and he is a Michigan Heisman Trophy winner.  Torg broadcasts a radio show in Columbus, Ohio were the main topic every day all year round is Ohio State football. Scott as well as Mike are both laid back sports fans who host a radio show and say the things that every fan says or jokes about in their living room.  Howard and his family should understand who he is and what he does for a living and obviously not take it seriously.  Torg was playing to the Michigan/ OSU rivalry and his followers.  The show they broadcast everyday is radio gold!  If I had to guess they are by far the highest rated show on 97.1 the Fan.  Mike and Scott have amazing on air chemesry and I really hope he does not get fired.  This may sound lame but when I get off work every day at 4pm and drive home they make me laugh out loud and make my day.  It would be a shame if he got fired. I know I am not alone too because they have a strong following of listeners that goes back many years. FREE the TORG.  Occupy the FAN!!!  LET 'EM LIVE!!
