Salk always came across as the average joe fan with average sports knowledge, with Huard being the savvy expert. O'Neil may not be quite on Huard's level as an analyst, but he's better behind a mic than I expected he'd be and his football knowledge is well ahead of Salk's. Kind of feels like the show has two experts now instead of one. Makes the discussion better. I'm glad they tapped O'Neil for the job.
I wonder if Doug Farrar was ever discussed as an option? That would have been something.
Agree on Danny > Salk. And excellent point about Doug, he would have been great for that but there are other slots and I think that 710 ESPN should consider him in one of them. He would be an upgrade over 60% of what is currently available.
