Well Dawg Nation, precious lost and then ESPN's love child USC lost, and I just heard Rece Davis ask Lou and Mark if Florida "was the best team in the SEC East?" after talking about how awesome Florida was. Mark May said "they are improving" which doesnt answer the question and Lou said "I think it's USC". What is clear is the narrative ESPN is pushing is changing with the losses, and it's changing to Florida and I believe it will to Notre Dame as well. Next weeks Notre Dame - Michigan will be a big hyped game.
What I saw was a decent contest between Florida and Tennessee that UF closed out strongly in the 4th quarter. I did not see a team that is worthy of this praise yet. I really do wish there was an "ESPN daily show". As someone pointed out, it's Entertainment Sports and Programming Network. They don't have to maintain a standard, they don't have to be consistent, they don't have to provide sincere analysis, they just have to provide entertainment. But, wow, it get's annoying.
Oh, now ESPN is saying it's clear Arkansas went plummeting when Petrino wrecked his motorcycle. Which is what Dawg Sports has been saying since last winter. Now, the unpenetrable SEC West is down to just two top teams, with Florida on the rise. Forbid LSU or Bama loses, then they'll talk about how tough the SEC East is.
So rant away. And maybe talk about how much you love their announcers that never ever stop talking if you wish.
Edit: Lou just said that USC didnt have the depth with the loss of scholarships, and the writers over rated them. I really would like to replay all the USC clips from last Jan through early this morning.
Edit: Rece just said "once UF-UT was must see tv". Which would have been the 90s. The history is important, however, it's not very contextual. In fact, they are making context. They are now talking about the Gators second half defense. Last week, they didnt talk about UGA shutting down Mizzou very much. I believe this is on replay from one channel to the other, but I now caught the whole bit.
