Florida State trolls ESPN, cries SEC bias again

For the last few years, the popular thing in college football is for fans and teams outside of the SEC to claim that major sports networks, most notably ESPN, have a bias for the SEC.

That has been the case for the 2015 season as well and it was apparent with the Florida State Seminoles on Monday morning.

ESPN tweeted out the AP top ten, that has four SEC teams in it for this week. The Seminoles responded with a pretty tweet that probably implies that the network is letting the SEC bias show once again.

Latest AP Top 10:
1) Ohio State
2) Baylor
3) TCU
4) Utah
5) Clemson
6) LSU
7) Michigan State
8) Florida
9) Texas A&M
10 Alabama

This may have something to do with what ESPN accidentally tweeted last week after the poll was announced. The Seminoles were ranked tenth last week and ESPN strangely tweeted out a top eleven when Florida, an SEC team and FSU’s biggest rival, was in that position.

I don’t see why the Seminoles are so upset right now. The only team that may not deserve to be ahead of them right now is Alabama, but with the way they played against Miami, I don’t know how true that is.

If the Seminoles really want ESPN to stop showcasing the SEC, the best option is to keep winning. Until they do so, they just needed to keep their mouth shut.
