For this particular instance, perhaps, but this isn't the first time idiots have done this when the kids out there giving their heart and soul have an off day.
When the playoff was announced a few years ago, I had a discussion with some of my coworkers who are SEC fans SEC fans (cause we don't pick teams here, we just root for whoever ES(EC)PN tells us to). They actually believe that ESPN drools over the SEC the way they do because they are heads and shoulders above other conferences... They were completely oblivious to the fact that ESPN has a $5 billion stake in the SEC network and rights to all the playoff games... What happens when more than one SEC team gets in the playoff? ESPN makes more money... Sadly that is what controls college football these days, not the love of the game...
44 - 16
Ahh... Never knew all the ins and outs of the red shirt program. Thanks!
Is this a medical redshirt instance?
Damn... Just as I am getting ready to leave Colorado, Roby comes to Denver.
I wonder if I could get him to come talk to my unit here in Colorado...
So we will see you at tryouts in the spring?
Remember, a $2.5B deal with the SEC and a major stake in the SEC Network has nothing to do with why ESPN drools all over them. It's obviously because they are superior to every other conference, including those in the CFL and NFL.
