ESPN Is The Last Guy On Earth To Find Out About Miami

UPDATE: Fear The Hat adds SI and USA Today and deliciously points out that the Miami story isn't even on the front page of their college football section. Despite the name, FTH does not appear to be Les Miles fan blog.

It's about 2 AM after Charles Robinson reduced the already fairly smouldering ruins of Miami football to a radioactive field of glass. Let's check national sports websites to see what they think is important!

Sporting News:


CBS Sports:


Fox Sports:


Yahoo Sports won't be a surprise but here it is:


NBC Sports:


SB Nation:


What does ESPN think is important at this moment? Do you think it's something other than an earth-shaking, NCAA-threatening, death-penalty-warranting annihilation of a major college football program? Surely. Surely they have passed it over in favor of someone who plays baseball in the Northeast, because they suck that hard, you say?



That guy totally plays regular season baseball… in Atlanta.

Goddammit, ESPN. Sometimes you do suck just as hard as everyone says you do. #freebruce #dontcallitashapiroback

If a 2011 football game were scheduled in Miami pitting Buckeyes against Hurricanes,and no football players were eligible; would there be a game if no one were around to witness it?

Mike and Mike were all over this during their morning radio show.  They even had a good segment interviewing Emmert.  Greenie continues to be clueless about college football.

As of 12:43 pm, Wednesday, the front page story on the NCAA FOOTBALL site is "Notre Dame is Back" and the two Miami links read:  "No Miami Suspensions Yet" and "Gifts to Players?". 

In the second article, they have a poll asking "How Big a Deal" the story is...2/3 of their readers have voted "Very Big Deal."  11% say "not a big deal."  I guess ESPN is with the 11%?

Just because Randall Delgado is only the 3rd best pitching prospect in the Braves organization doesn't mean he doesn't deserve top spot on ESPN. I guess they could have done a split screen with Delgado and Arodys Vizcaino, who ended up getting the win.

How many Miami players are top 50 prospects in minor league baseball? None! duh!
