Obviously there is no ESPN bias.

Does the ACC even have two teams who are considered Elite?
The defending national champion is certainly not Clemson nor an ACC team, right?

So let me get this straight: ESPN personnel such as Herbstreit and others say there is no ESPN Bias. They have also spoken of Clemson's perceived feeling of a lack of respect from College Football media.
They challenge the bias and Clemson's perspectives of being doubted and overlooked.

Eveyone is entitled to their own opinions. I get it. BUt what about examples:
Take a look at the "stories" and coverage from the ESPN landing page/home page for NCAA College Football.

Two mentions of an ACC team
- Miami story was added this morning. and then way way way down s you scroll you see Clemson.
- If you want to say Notre Dame is semi-ACC then 3 mentions. I will call it 2.5.

Count how many times an SEC team is featured or the SEC is mentioned?
Alabama? Michigan? Auburn? Ohio State, UCF? Hawaii? Big Ten? TCE? Kent State?

So because they say NO BIAS, I am sure ESPN is right and there is no bias.

Hmmm.. good question. Perhaps I am just at slighly less of a level as that level shared by the anonymous Internet ego who has to respond with some sort of scoff or ridicule?

Or maybe I am just above the level of one of those people who's ability to evaluate and ponder stems as far as what the cool people are saying?

Or I could be at the same range on the scale as one of those people who just sits mouth breathing with brow furrowed and cannot even blink towards accepting someone else's perspective?

Will we ever know? Probably not.

Now I hope someone like yourself does not need to go rant against

... or why English and the Arts are ridiculous and people should only learn Math and Engineering because any one can communicate
... or why secretly women should not be in leadership, supervisory positions?

How do you get espn bias towards Clemson because we are not on the front page everyday? You may want them to have a bias towards us but they most certainly do not. I just do not understand people like you. Get real man.

Better, nope. Just strange seeing it so blatant.

But thank you for your concern. Very nice to see a Tigernet person show some compassion.

Of course, the Title and the Game speak enough for all.

But how loud would ESPN showcase that Title Game if Bama, Michigan, or Ohio State had one the game?
