ESPN's Next College Football Star
Pollack's broadcasting career starting in Sept. 9, 2008, after a neck injury forced him to retire from football, as an afternoon sports talk host on Atlanta's 790 The Zone. Also in 2008, Pollack began studio work for CBS's college football coverage. He also is a college football analyst for ESPNU.
Pollack's big chance happened this year, he was selected to be part of the traveling road show that is know as College Game. Also he is a host on the Palmer and Pollack show, which is 2.5 hours long on ESPNU.
While the show is great, being part of College GameDay has served as Pollack's big break. He has been a standout when he has appeared on GameDay and has done a great job breaking down things, he adds a passion that sometimes is lost on people. I heard him on Sirius XM Radios 24/7 College Sports Radio with Bill King a couple of weeks ago and came away very impressed. During the interview, no matter the topic, he had a view on the subject from conference expansion to LSU.
With Lee Corson starting to get up there in age, could David Pollack be the perfect replacement for him on College GameDay. I have no idea what ESPN is going to do, but they could do a lot worst then having Pollack, join Fowler and Herbstreit on a full time basis.
