In his show ‘Fearless’, Whitlock had second-hand embarrassment when Smith ranted and raved for almost an hour on-air regarding his memoir. However, somehow his comments led to fans developing confusion among fans regarding Whitlock’s football history. However, not sparring them with the humiliation, Whitlock publically corrected in his signature no-nonsense way.

Before cementing his foot as a football journalist, Jason Whitlock had dipped his toes into the actual fieldwork as well. The Indiana native was a feared offensive lineman back in his day. After finishing off his stellar school football career, Whitlock commenced his freshman year at Ball State. However, he later transferred to Michigan to play as a QB. So when a fan mixed his position at Michigan with his freshman team, Whitlock was quick to reprimand them. “I played QB at Michigan, sir. Get your story straight,” Whitlock lambasted.

Along the lines, the blazing offensive lineman found his way to channel his explosive attacks into words when he embarked on his journey as the co-host of ‘Speak For Yourself’ alongside Colin Cowherd. By 2002, he found his break, transcending to work with ESPN and other shows. Who can blame him? Whitlock is just carrying around the legacy of all the Michigan players who went on to become some of the best NFL analysts of all time.

Some might argue that Jalen Rose might top Dierdorf with his 13-year career in the NBA after the U-Mich program, before assuming the position of ESPN and ABC host. The younger fans might resonate more when names like Desmond Howard, Tom Harmon, and Brian Griese are mentioned, at least the ones who have seen them as hosts of various shows across. All in all, Michigan alumni have proved themselves to be as great broadcasters as they used to play.
