What’s going on?
Jerome put him on blast by referencing how they've had the top 5 adjusted offensive efficiency. Mike tried to say virginia blowing out nobodies by 40 points skews that, which is wrong. Jerome said we play in the acc.
EDIT: Mike currently interviewing Ty Jerome, the Virginia player from Westchester who RTed the clip to Mike and called it to Mike's attention.
I listened to him Thursday and he was waxing poetic about how Tiger looked, even commented about his snazzy gray cap, I remember thinking he was in love with Tiger listening to his fawning over him. If he’s not a fan he sure sounded like one Thursday.Hasn't big Mike always been a huge Phil guy, even going back to when they were the no. 1 and no. 2 players in the world? This has got to be killing him. Along with Nantz. Which makes it all that much more delicious.
Interesting. I do seem to recall him being very much in the Phil camp , but that’s going back several years, when he was still paired with the mad dog. Of course, it would not be unlike the big fella to do a complete 180, and deny/forget he ever stated an opinion. He does that in the span of a few days, let alone 10-15 years.I listened to him Thursday and he was waxing poetic about how Tiger looked, even commented about his snazzy gray cap, I remember thinking he was in love with Tiger listening to his fawning over him.

That’s not 100% accurate:winter ratings book is out, mike was second place to michael kay/ espn
Kay beat Mike in the traditional Nielsen ratings while factoring in the online stream Francesa has him beat. But that also does not include Kay's 20,000 viewers a day via the YES Network.
He really doesn't have a point about the ratings though. The ratings that are widely accepted as "the official ratings" are the Nielsen Ratings which Kay beat him on. The ratings that come from various streaming don't factor into the Nielsen ratings because different ads are sold on the stream versus the radio. It's like when WEEI tries to use the streaming in their competition against TSH. You never used to hear Francesa talk about the streaming because he was beating the competition by so much that it didn't matter.While Mike has a point about the ratings, he embarrassed himself again yesterday. All he had to do was stay retired and his ego got the best of him. Now he is back in a job where he seems miserable. He has become a laughingstock and the show borders on unlistenable. If he wasn’t such an insufferably pompous asshole, I might actually feel badly for him.
Funny that the NY Post says Funhouse is what's keeping Francesa relevant.Kay’s show has had more of a buzz in recent weeks, though Francesa remains relevant on social media thanks largely to his Twitter biographer, @BackAftaThis, who has rounded up Francesa saying Virginia and Tiger Woods had no shot at their latest championships, among other things.
This has caused Francesa to falsely claim the anonymous man behind the feed “doctored” the video.
Without @BackAftaThis — who says he “hates” Francesa’s show and hopes his account is shut down — it is unclear if Francesa would be that relevant online.
As has been pointed out on NYC sports talk the past few days: the Giants have recently been rather Jet-like, while the Jets have recently been a bit more Giant-like.The s Giants dont have a plan. Keeping eli they should have used the three first rounders to get impact players who can help win now.
