Anyone else notice that despite beating L'ville

Posted: Oct 4, 2016 11:08 PM

...the national media are intent on creating sports news instead of reporting it?

They've created the narrative that Louisville is even better than Clemson because they lost to Clemson. Personally, I think they're all trying to make themselves feel better about per-maturely awarding Lamar Jackson The Heisman, The ACC Championship, and National Championship after a 4 week season.

Clemson turns the ball over 5x, twice inside the red-zone, but still wins. Shouldn't Louisville have won the game? What a bunch of clowns.

It must hurt bad to know that Clemson can play a sloppy offensive game and still beat their little media darling.

This is actually a good thing

They used to only do this with the SEC. Now, the ACC is getting the ESPN spin treatment. We need that.


agreed - we need to appreciate this

in previous years, they would have demoted BOTH teams.

This is a landmark event in the history of the ACC.

There's no story to tell on the Clemson side. Win and you're in. Beat FSU, which is now a 2 loss team and will be a tough game to hype up, and it is a cake walk to the ACCCG. We all know that there is a lot of football between now and December but there isn't much of a story for the media to hype.
On the other hand, Louisville needs hype to stay relevant because there is a VERY slim chance that they make the ACCCG as Clemson will have to implode to see that happen.

... and we're still ranked behind Alabama with their signature wins over WKY, KY and Kent State - plus two other 'preseason' (read over rated) top 20 teams;

and Ohio State with THEIR signature wins over Bowling Green, Rutgers and Tulsa plus their win over an over rated Oklahoma team?

I am SO tired of hearing all the sportscast talking heads extolling their virtues, yada yada yada...

... our Tigers need to just keep on taking care of business because I REALLY want to hear the narrative when THAT happens to their 'beloved signature/storied programs'!
