ESPN Knows What We Want This Time Of Year

Saturday, March 01, 2008

We're in the midst of a great part of the year in regards to Sports. College Basketball is at it's peak, the NBA is nearing the homestretch, and Baseball is starting up. So what was the main attraction on ESPN.com's front page this afternoon? No not Basketball (NBA or NCAA), not NASCAR, not the Red Sox or Yankees, hell not even coverage of the Patriots or NFL Free Agency.

That's right folks.....Notre Dame Football!!! (click for larger)


You always know what we want ESPN.com. I love you.

Nice to see Sean Salisbury's already got a new gig. He looks good with a beard and the green hat and jacket.

ESPN doesn't hold the rights to Notre Dame football, but they're leading .com with it in March?

ESPN is guaranteed a Notre Dame game with Michigan or USC every other year. And they get first dibs on virtually every road game with the possible exception of the Mountain West and Navy.

spring practice starts this month, i dont see people bitching about all the coverage spring training gets. and the article wasn't just about notre dame.
actually the article was pretty useless overall, i was hoping for a breakdown of recruits or something basically it was 'well the new coaches are going to change some things'. killer insight

To me, it's partly the fact that, for example, LSU won the national championship, but they still have to sit back and take it as Notre Dame becomes ESPN's cover boy one more time. Or you can insert any other team that deserves the publicity because of what they do on the field. If they (Notre Dame) win, they're the story. If they lose, it's a bigger story. I'm fucking sick of it.

yeah because 'lsu is still awesome, prepares for spring practice' is a better story than 'most storied team in college football coming off worst season in decades trying to rebuild, heres how theyre doing it'
