ESPN televised a high school football game on Sunday, nothing too crazy, but it was a total one sided blowout. ESPN announcers said Bishop Sycamore lied about its football team. Midway through the second quarter of Sunday’s game, with IMG Academy already up 30-0, ESPN’s announcers had this to say, according to Awful Announcing:
“You look at IMG and this is the most talented prep team in the country. Bishop Sycamore told us they had a number of Division I prospects on their roster, and to be frank, a lot of that, we could not verify. They did not show up in our database, they did not show up in the databases of other recruiting services. So, OK, that’s what you’re telling us, fine, that’s how we take it in. From what we’ve seen so far, this is not a fair fight, and there’s got to be a point where you’re worried about health and safety.
“I already am worried about it. I think this could potentially be dangerous given the circumstances and the mismatch that we have here. And quite honestly, Bishop Sycamore doesn’t have not only the front-line players, but they don’t have the depth in case something were to happen to their roster with a kid or two here throughout the remaining two quarters of this football game.”

Apparently ESPN really took a high school program at its word, which is nuts.
This is what happens when ESPN gets duped into airing a high school football game between the most talented team in the country and an online charter school nobody has heard of, went 0-6 last year, and lied about its roster to get on TV. pic.twitter.com/QUwM8BQKiY

According to MaxPreps, the team went 0-6 last season, getting outscored 227-42 with a 56-6 loss to IMG, and was already 0-1 this season.
It’s called due diligence ESPN, get your sh*t together.
