ESPN behind Syracuse to the ACC

In something I doubt Dana Oniel will write about, it turns out that her company was behind the ACC getting two teams. So all that talk from her about how dishonorable Cuse was, the real finger should be pointed at her employer. I doubt we hear anything about this story, because ESPN has a way of forgetting to cover things that put them in a bad light, but not the real truth is starting to come out.

Gene DeFilippo on the subject of the ACC's decision to poach Syracuse and Pittsburgh from the Big East: "We always keep our television partners close to us. ... TV -- ESPN -- is the one who told us what to do."

It actually gets more damming right after that statement. The reason ESPN did this is because the Big East was possibly going to go to Fox Sports or possibly even more concerning to Versus/ NBC. Removing ESPN's death grip of all things college sports (with the exception of the saturday SEC game).  So ESPN sabatoged the conference in order to hurt NBC/ Fox.

 

One thing was proven, this is really all about money.
