Sharpe, fresh off a much-publicized split from longtime “Undisputed” costar Skip Bayless on FS1, called Smith “Skip” on at least two occasions captured by viewers on X, formerly Twitter. Smith appeared to be understanding.

Breaking up is hard to do, even in media.
So here’s to Sharpe’s few-times-a-week teaming up with Smith and to spirited debates ... that perhaps don’t go completely off the rails.
Smith, on Tuesday, humorously tried to keep Sharpe, a Football Hall of Fame tight end, on point by wearing a name tag.
