ESPN Gets Carried Away

Click here and see what I mean.

It's one thing to like a sport, even love it, but when you go overboard with analysis, with coverage, with hype, you get stuff like this -- and the season hasn't even begun for some schools.

I'll make anyone a bet: review the Top 25 of every major publication -- after the season. You'll find that they get it mostly right, but there are a few teams who prove to be the turds in the punch bowl that crash and burn and end up way off the radar screen, and there are several teams who make it into the Top 15 because, well, they're more worried about getting it done behind the scenes than all the P.R. they can get before the season.

To paraphrase an overused expression, it's not the amount of hype of the team that matters, it's the amount of team in the hype.

Let the games begin, because they are played for a reason.
