When it comes to delivering an outrageous hot take, Skip Bayless never disappoints.
Skip Bayless has built a reputation for generating buzz around his morning debate show, “Undisputed,” as if he were a boxing promoter. He frequently sparks controversy by posing provocative questions on Twitter to give viewers a taste of what’s in store on the latest episode of his show.
On Monday, as an example, Bayless pondered the potential implications of Travis Kelce’s relationship with Taylor Swift on both the future Hall of Fame tight end and the reigning champions as a whole. It was a quintessential Skip Bayless move.
“How could Taylor Swift impact the Chiefs? Could it become a distraction for the team or for Kelce? Or could it inspire Kelce to even greater heights? Now on Undisputed,” Bayless tweeted on Monday.
However, on Tuesday, the seasoned sports commentator may have gone a step too far with his promotional tweet for their segment on Deion Sanders’ University of Colorado Buffaloes. It raised eyebrows, to say the least.
“Is Deion’s Colorado now Black America’s Team? Now on Undisputed,” Bayless asked.
Fans weighed in:
Bayless, who is famously fixated on the Cowboys, appears to be insinuating that if they are considered “White America’s team,” then another program or franchise, like the University of Colorado, might be viewed as “Black America’s team.”
In light of Bayless’ new roster of football co-hosts on Undisputed, including Keyshawn Johnson, Michael Irvin, and Richard Sherman, one can hope that he yielded the floor to one of them, as they possess the relevant expertise to discuss such a topic.
This marks Bayless’ first season of Undisputed without Shannon Sharpe, who had been Bayless’ co-host since the show’s inception in 2016 until 2023. Sharpe has since joined ESPN, where he frequently appears on First Take alongside Stephen A. Smith.
