Colin Cowherd’s Colin’s Football Show – with his unique take on football and irreverent view of life on full display will preview upcoming college and NFL seasons on Friday, July 25, at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
The half-hour show will debut two new segments: “Colin’s Cartoons” – minute-long animations that illustrate old NFL stories narrated by former players — and “Meat Sandwich,” a discussion segment with Cowherd and a guest chatting over a meat sandwich in a diner setting. The first “Meat Sandwich” will feature Numbers Never Lie’s Michael Smith on Johnny Manziel’s future in the NFL.
The show will also include a look at the approaching NFL season with former Chicago Bears WR and ESPN Radio’s Tom Waddle and a “Cage Confessional” with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Additionally, Matthew Berry and ESPN The Magazine editor-in-chief Chad Millman will talk fantasy football and betting lines in “Bet Sharp”, respectively.
On the college side, Cowherd will name his top five players to watch this season, and Danny Kanell will join him for a big-picture look at the 2014-15 college football landscape.
Preceding Colin’s Football Show, and as part of a larger build-up to the NFL season across ESPN platforms, comedian Frank Caliendo will feature in a 30-minute special, Frank Caliendo’s Best of the NFL, at 7 p.m. on ESPN. The show includes the best segments and Caliendo’s top impersonations from the 2013 NFL season, such as his creative 30 for 30 mockumentary on Richard Sherman.
Colin’s Football Show airs Sundays at 9 a.m. on ESPN2 during the football season. The 60-minute show will return for its second season September 7. Cowherd will continue to host his daily ESPN Radio show, The Herd with Colin Cowherd, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
