College football, where the results are made up and the games don't matter

It's long past time to have a discussion about just how much influence ESPN has on the sport. From actively destroying traditions and conferences to build a super SEC to now outright manipulation to exclude an undefeated Power 5 program with a national brand from the college football playoff to make sure the SEC didn't get left out, it's hard to ignore anymore. And, oh wouldn't you know, the program they manipulated is the one program they want to leave the ACC to join the SEC in the future, how convenient.

ESPN has killed the golden goose. You cannot ignore it anymore. They have too much power, they are too influential to the sport.
