Why does eSECpn dislike Clemson?


Posted: Nov 14, 2018 5:36 PM
 

I finally figured it out!!! We are not a part of the MIGHTY SEC!!!!!!! We are just not on their level. How dare we even imagine that we can even compete with the true powerhouses of college football!!!!!! Can't wait till January so I can watch them eat their words!!!!!


Simple

It’s in your head , ESPN gives us our fare share of love.
Like it or not until we beat Bama they are the favorite to win it all

I agree! It is hard to play that card when we are promoted just as much as Al-La Bummer.

Thank you! ESPN has featured us on Gameday now how many times? They spent countless resources doing our entrance around the stadium a few years ago because they hate us? Most of their talking heads constantly rank us as at least the #2 team and have nothing but good things to say about Dabo and our program.

Where does the idea come from that they dislike is? Because from time to time someone who works there picks us to lose a game, or says we may struggle? So when they pick us to win a game does that mean they hate the team they’re picking us to beat? Or does it simply mean they think we’re going to win the game?

If anyone there doesn’t like us I’d say it’s because some of our more sensitive fans flood them with hateful messages each time they offer an opinion that isn’t of us winning our next game by 50 points and winning the NC.

You're Partially Correct

We aren't a part of the Big 10 or ye-ole-SEC. And we aren't a over-glorified from way way back in the day Notre Dame traditional name brand.
Clemson is an "anomaly" that "the collective" over at SEC-PN can't "assimilate" into a mindless drone like the rest of the schools around. We refuse to give in to the narrative! That's why!

I think it’s less about us and more about how the rest of the ACC sux in football. If we beat an undefeated FSU in early November in their house, we would be getting respect. Since all teams are down, they are cautious to give us respect.

How aren’t we getting respect? I can’t think of anyone on ESPN or anywhere that doesn’t have us as their #2 team, and 99% of the world has had us in at least their top 4 all season long.

This is the same old thread replayed over and over:

Why does espn hate us?

Another poster: They don't, we get as much attention as the SEC.

It's the same tired story every week.

Don't know who is right and "Frankly Scarlet I don't give a #!@%$.

Can they stop us from being 10-0? No!!
Can they stop us from winning the ACC? No!!
Can they keep us out of the playoff? No!!
Who gives a hoot about what they think?
Sensitivity will steal all the glory of living in the glory years of Clemson football.
ESPN is their network and they can dislike anybody they want to. It's their problem not mine.

Some still see Clemson as the team that layed an egg in the Sugar Bowl last year with that other QB. Others can see with their eyes this offense has the potential to explode at any time, similar to Deshauns last two years. Our defense abused Bama last year and had they had any help from the other side of the ball many of us would own back to back Natty paraphernalia.

I don't understand what is so confusing. It's all about eyeballs. The traditional powers and blue bloods have much bigger fan bases. They don't want to disrespect us, as they know we are CFP threats, but it is in their best interest to talk more about the larger fan bases to bring those eyeballs.

Couldn't yell you. I quit watching the clowns on there years ago.

I don't think they hate Clemson....it's the ACC in football


Posted: Nov 14, 2018 8:01 PM
 

They don't respect ACC football and treat it like a joke. Remember, the "ACC Wheel of Destiny"?

My Friend, this "hating" thing is a modern invention


Posted: Nov 14, 2018 8:17 PM
 

practiced by every fan base in the nation...especially when one of the talking heads says something a little trifling about a school.

The fact that we currently sit ranked Number 2 in the land negates any hating from any source.

How does one actually eat words? I've oft been puzzled by this phrase.
