Rivals.com: This is why it's tough to take you guys seriously

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by scribebaseball, Nov 26, 2006.

  1. Read this loaded lede from their poll story:

    Despite not playing a game, and watching as USC won by a lesser margin at home to team that Michigan defeated on the road earlier in the year, the Wolverines slip to No. 3 in the AP, a shift of some 45 points from last week. The Maize and Blue is still at No. in the Coaches Poll.


    This is getting so silly. Every football game is its own entity. It's not like USC needed a last-seond Hail Mary to beat Notre Dame, like all the maize-and-blue backers seem to believe. They were firmly in control of the game from start to finish.

    10 bucks says Junkie wrote this. Also, what are the "maize and blue" in the coaches poll? Shouldn't they have filled that in before posting the story?

    Yeah, that's bad. But it's not like you don't see stuff like that in some local papers too. Just like newspapers, some Rivals sites are blatant homers and others are good.

    Was listening to the radio the other day ... and I thought I heard something to the effect of, "listen on rivals.com radio on Sirius." WTF? Really?

    Nope. Just an asshole, so by my count you owe me $120. Too bad that other thread got deleted, cause I was an asshole there to and I was hoping to read your response.

    Yep. I've listened to it. It's, I believe, a daily program on one of their sports channels. Somewhat interesting.

    What idiot wrote that.
    That's almost as bad as saying Notre Dame beat Navy 38-14, Rutgers shut out Navy, 34-0, so why isn't Rutgers ranked ahead of Notre Dame?

    Color me flabbergasted.

    No one takes these no-talent barnacles seriously because they poach a lot of information from newspapers and sell it as their own.
