The new ESECPN Mantra.

Posted: Jan 14, 2019 8:56 AM
 

I have heard this now from 3 different announcers at 3 different intervals, so it is not a random error. They are evidently being told to refer to us (Clemson) as winning National Championships "2 of the last 4 years". Instead of, as factual, 2 of the last 3. May be a small distinction to some, but do not believe it is an unintentional "error". Arsewipes.

Clemson's been to the CFP the past 4 years and won two of them. Fact. Saying "two of the last three" is factual but is a slight to the 2015 team that was in the finals and almost pulled it off. Unwad your panties and realize that not everything said on ESPN is directed as a slur on Clemson.


Don't buy it. If I used your logic, I would say that Clemson

has won the last two Championship games in a row in which they have appeared. (Which is also factually accurate.)

When they say "2 of the last four" and dont mention the other 2, it makes viewer say "huh, who won the other 2"?

They then look it up and the result is "Oh, it was Alabama".
What do you typically remember the most about the movies you watch or the TV series you follow? The last few minutes, or the last few episodes.

Meaning the final conclusion viewers remember is that "Alabama won 2 of the last 4", which indirectly takes the focus off of Clemson.

And yes, it is true Alabama won 2 of the last 4, but that takes the focus off of Clemson as a result and attempts to diminish our accomplishments.


I bet you if the subject were Alabama, they would carefully word their statements to make sure viewers are totally focused on Alabama and not leave the statements open ended, causing viewers to lead themselves to look up Clemson.


They are ESPiN - the CNN of Sports***

We have played in four playoffs. Clemson has played in only three finals and has won two of them. We have played in four semifinal games and have won three of them. We are five for seven in playoff games!

Does it really matter? Next year, if the SEC doesn't come home with the "NATTY" they will spin it some other way.


I already know what that will be. They will probably use it

some this coming year, to keep the Bama dynasty on top. Here it is:

In the modern era, there is only ONE school that has won 3 out of 4 (outright, not shared) National Championships. That school is Alabama. 2009, 2011,2012. With a win next year, we will tie that accomplishment.

And, NO, I am not counting UCF's ridiculous claimed championship last year as Bama having a shared one, going forward.

Had it not been for us, Bama would now be on a run of FOUR in a row, which, as much as I EVER hate to agree with anything Stephen A. Smith says, would have ruined college football. So, even if you dislike Clemson, you should thank DW4, Renfrow, and this years team for saving college football. :)

You may not, but the NCAA and the record books do.

Meaning, Alabama cannot claim 3 out of 4 undisputed National Titles. We can.

If it hadn’t been for Bama Clemson might be on a run of 4 in a row. Maybe it’s Bama that’s “saving” college football.

We have won 2 out of the last 4

Hmm. Sounds too much like Coot logic, where they have

won five of the last ten versus us. True, but utterly not indicative of current trends.

Then again I've heard several talking heads say, "Clemson beat 'bamer 2 out of the last 3" or "Dabo has beaten saban 2 out of the last 3". Besides, we have always thrived as the underdog.

Heck, I'm still savoring the joy from our 44 - 16 beat-down of the Red Elephants to dwell on anything else and will continue to savor the joy I am now experiencing. I just don't have the time or inclination to even listen to or read anything about any other subject. But I do reserve a little time to imagine what our football team will accomplish over the next few years.

I don't know what I have done to deserve it but I thank The Lord for letting me hang around these 97 years just so I could see the Tigers get to the top of the hill.
