There was never a single second in the entire game where anyone associated with the broadcast gave even the slightest **** one way or the other about CJS or USF. There was no briefing beforehand where ESPN gathered up all of the broadcasters and told them, "Do not mention USF. Only P5 teams." No one was yelling in a cameraman's ear, "Get Scott the hell off the screen, NOW!" At halftime, they didn't slip Herbstreit a note telling him to mention OSU's DC was on his way to Boston College and skip USF. 

They just didn’t have the time to try to remind people on who USF is, try to manufacture a reason they should care and then discuss that Scott was leaving Clempzon to go to a school the audience just learned about from the 10 minutes of expensive air time they just wasted.

I think Fernandez has done a great job and should be able to stay as long as he likes, but you have to admit that it’s a pretty good argument that maybe conference championships aren’t the only measur

I know ESPN has financial ties to the SEC....is it safe to assume they have ties to the whole "playoff system", and then by default the P5?

ESPN announcers talked more about CFP and random junk.  Completely disinterested in the actual game they were calling.  Granted we were terrible, but they were still unprofessional Clowns.

CBS announcers were into the game,  unbiased about the teams, and seemed we'll informed.  Absolute Professionals.

It doesn’t work that way, and if they did, the media folks would chuckle. We’re not newsworthy at this point.

Oh yeah...how do you know how “it works”? What makes you the authority on what’s newsworthy? Just curious.

OMG!!!!! It's our school colors. They're too Notre Damish for ESPN. They hate USF because Notre Dame has a clause in their contract that stipulates when ever ESPN 'Talks about ND, Shows pictures or video of ND or uses their COLORS, ND gets paid. Just WOW!

I this this a bit of an over-reaction or USF fans being too sensitive.

It was a big time playoff game.  The JS to USF story is way down on the priority list.

Exactly...part of the story. 

That’s our story? That we’re currently irrelevant? You think ESPN is rushing to produce a segment on irrelevance?

I think it's maybe more about OSU being higher profile than Clemson, and it was their DC not a co-coordinator, than it was his destination. Hell, I'm guessing a fair portion of audience doesn't even know BC is P5.
