I like him
I remember him on ESPN when I first got cable in 1985. I am not surprised he did not last into the 90's when ESPN turned into the goliath that it did....Along with the stupid catchphrases, some were food yes,....But then it became a caricature of itself. A guy like him would have never fit in or last in the culture of ESPN now.
Grande was the first person ever seen on ESPN. He gave inductory comments on what ESPN was going to be about when it first went on the air.
As for his playing at USC, I'm sure as much as he has mentioned it if it weren't true it would have been refuted long before now. Grande is highly respected in the TV industry and he wouldn't be if he was out there making up stuff like this.
