We've already shared with you Ohio State fan reactions to the wild play that ended this year's Iron Bowl, but how did ESPN's college football studio team of Rece Davis, Mark May, and Lou Holtz respond to the improbable ending? Fortunately, the WWL was live with a three-shot at that moment, so we can see how each… »
Caught off guard when they threw it back to the studio during ESPN's halftime report, somebody burped loudly and directly into their microphone.

This week Lou uses his pep talk to cast a bewitching spell on the audience, performing the old newspaper trick; a staple of stage magicians from Budapest to Los Angeles. And when it is over, you be left questioning the very nature of reality itself… »
