Reason Number....Oh The Hell With It

I simply cannot keep track of what number we're on regarding "why ESPN sucks," but this one may take the cake.

MIB and I were talking the other day when ESPN/ABC announced that Barry Sanders was the second-greatest college football player of all time. We both reasoned--pretty rationally, regardless of our fan affiliation--that since Tommy Frazier was not on the list yet, he was going to get the credit he deserves, and wear the crown of the greatest college football player of all time.

Welp, we were wrong. They named the Galloping Ghost Red Grange as the greatest player of all time.

I guess it makes sense that Tommy Frazier wasn't on the list. I mean, he only was the MVP in three straight National Championship games, winning two of them in a row. I guess the fact that Vince Young won one against the greatest team in the history of team sports USC deserved to be on the list more than Tommy.

Mike Rozier wasn't on there, either. Which also makes sense, seeing he only had--according to Sports Illustrated--"maybe the best senior year ever" en route to his Heisman Trophy.

I suppose that this was ESPN's payback to Nebraska for having the nerve to have voted for their teams in that ridiculous "Greatest Teams Tournament" or whatever that was.

Whatever, I guess. If ESPN wants to reduce their credibility as the self-proclaimed "World Wide Leader In Sports" one silly Top 25 list at a time, so be it. Because the fact is that anyone that knows anything about college football knows that the 1995 Huskers belong in any conversation regarding the greatest teams of all time, and Tommy Touchdown Frazier is, by God, one of the greatest college football players ever. Period.

Suck it, ESPN.

In the words of John McEnroe, "You cannot be serious."

What a fucking travesty.
 
I've only just recently got tipped to your blog and I've really enjoyed it. However, one of my biggest pet peeves is when people spell "Tommie Frazier": "Tommy". I say this with full admiration and respect for you folks and your writings as followers of all things Husker.

So please be so advised and keep up the good work on the Heavy Soul!
