Today, Doug Gottlieb got his ESPN exit interview with Dan Patrick. This is something Patrick — who had his own acrimonious split with the media behemoth he refers to as “The Mothership” — does every time someone leaves the place: he brings them on to hopefully get them to talk smack about it. It’s pretty entertaining.
Like most outgoing talent, Erin Andrews celebrated her liberation from ESPN by appearing on the Dan Patrick Show.
Welcome to Top 5 Dead or Alive, a new feature that’s designed specifically to make life hell for our employees. Each week, we’ll ask one of our writers to come up with a definitive list of the five best people, places or things in a particularly subjective category — then, we’ll ask you to tell him who or what is missing from the list. Feel free to be a total dick.
Right now Larry Brown is busy preparing to take over SMU, his 736th head coaching job, but he still has some thoughts on his 735th gig, in which he led the now-possibly-historically-awful Charlotte Bobcats. Specifically, he’s got thoughts on Michael Jordan… and the people who worked for him.

Conspiracy Theory Of The Day: Are Archie Manning And Oliver Luck Working To Keep Their Sons Off The Same Team?
Earlier today, Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio joined Dan Patrick to share a conspiracy theory he has – albeit a rather believable-seeming one. You know how Archie Manning said his son Peyton and Andrew Luck probably shouldn’t be on the same team…then backtracked, saying he knew that Manning and Luck could coexist peacefully after all? Well, suffice to say, Florio thinks Archie Manning’s original remarks were the more accurate ones.
There’s a pretty good chance you can’t stand ESPN First Take mainstay Skip Bayless. That, of course, is just how he’d like it. His game is getting people to pay attention, no matter the kind of attention. One particular Bayless detractor, though, pushes the limits of those “any publicity is good publicity” standards.
Dan Patrick Condemns ESPN For Sitting On Bernie Fine Molestation Allegations: “How Do You Not Take This To Police?”
The major focus in the disturbing child molestation story involving former Syracuse basketball assistant Bernie Fine story is rightly on his alleged crimes. But there’s another side to the story popping up: the story of how the story was covered, and why some details didn’t emerge sooner.
