If you guys have been following the hype of OU/FSU you've no doubt detected a huge bias against OU. Lots of talk has been made about how OU is mediocre on the road, and FSU was flatout awesome down the stretch last year (nevermind the embarrassing loss to VTech, lol, or how OU whipped ass down the stretch against OSU and NU). Apparently the fact that FSU beat UL-Monroe by 34 and Charleston Southern by 52 means that OU is about to get whupped, lol. On Gameday, the only one to pick OU was Corso. ESPN is hyping this as an upset that WILL happen.
And maybe it will. But it seems really odd that ESPN is hyping the game so much when it's not being broadcast on ESPN. I'm thinking (and this may be tinhat type thinking) that ESPN is pissed off that Oklahoma is helping to sink the Longhorn Network with all the talk of jumping to the Pac 12. LHN goes down, and ESPN is out $300 million for nothing. Sounds crazy, but if you were following the Texas Tech/Mike Leach/Craig James debacle last year then you know ESPN does have an agenda and will gladly propagandize if they believe it's in their best interests.
Am I crazy? Or do you think there is something to my theory?
