  • the real person that blame.

  • There are people that blame here are the A C C.

  • They run this conference.

  • They set the protocol and where were they?

  • They're supposed to be involved, and I know that they were on the periphery.

  • But it seems like the commissioner of the A C C drawn Swofford should have been on these calls and making the final determination.

  • We don't determine whether you have a college football game because the two medical staffs are at odds.

  • It goes up the food chain, and you know I have tow.

  • Think the dubow is correct.

  • They went down there, they were ready to play, and, frankly, they needed the game.

  • Clemson right now needs any kind of win.

  • You can get to impress this committee as they get ready for tonight and move on, obviously, to to play Notre Dame in a rematch for the A C C championship game.

  • Florida State's has really they were going to lose Molly by three or four touchdowns, maybe four or five touchdowns.

  • I mean, the program is a shell of itself.

  • We all know that Mike nor Bell was sent down there to resurrect a program that willing Taggart couldn't do.

  • And the Jimbo Fisher did not leave in great shape, either.

  • But this is This is not a good look and for all the media, and I'm sure that I'll hear from one of them in a minute who want Thio castigate Davos Sweeney.

  • What did he say?

  • That's wrong.

  • We went down there to play the game.

  • We're not playing the game unless you paid the freight because we've already been there once.

  • Well, first of all, I completely agree with you.

  • I completely side with Dabble Sweeney on this matter.

  • I don't think he said one word that was false, in my estimation.

  • That's number one.

  • So I definitely side with dabble, sweetie.

  • But I would ask you this ball as somebody who has never been shy about calling it like you see it specifically when it comes to college football.

  • When we think about all the things that have transpired since this pandemic pandemic has taken fold with college football assess for us what college football has looked like now what it looks like now compared to what it even looked like before this pandemic.

  • Could you give us just a bird's eye view.

  • How should we view college football in this day and age based on all the things that had things that have happened?

  • Yeah, Stephen A.

  • Right now, college football is a train wreck.

  • I mean, you have games being postponed, canceled, rearranged, repurposed.

  • I mean, it is a terribly ugly looking by the way college basketball is gonna look worse, it's going to have a difficult time getting off the ground here, uh, tomorrow when it begins.

  • But but college football made the decision.

  • We're going to have a season, and now they're paying for it.

  • Last week, 18 games were either postponed or canceled, and already this week, a few are off the board and it's going to be difficult.

  • And it's really about getting to the finish line.

  • Uh, some could easily accuse the college football administrators of being reckless of simply saying, Well, let's get the guys on the plane.

  • Let's go play.

  • Let's get this thing out of the way.

  • But many programs are are on the are on the brink right now.

  • 53 is the number of scholarship players that most leagues have subscribed.

  • Thio and a couple of games last week schools went under that number.

  • But there there is quiet pressure from up above.

  • Listen, if you can play the game, play the game.

  • Why Stephen?

  • A.

  • We all know why it's television inventory.

  • It's about money.

  • And even though they've lost a lot of money already by not having the stadiums full and by truncating the season now, it's simply about figuring out a way over these next four weeks to get to the end of the end line of the regular season and somehow some way getting the college football playoff played on January 1st and then ultimately on January 11th.

  • And one more thing.

  • The College football playoff committee they're meeting right now.

  • Guys in Grapevine, Texas, and I interviewed Bill Hancock the other day and I said, Did I hear this correctly?

  • You folks, 13 members of this committee are meeting in person, he said.

  • Oh, absolutely.

  • We feel like if the schools make the effort, we need to make the effort.

  • You can debate this all you want, but what's happening tonight on ESPN?

  • It is interesting for college football junkies, but the only poll that's going to really matter is in four weeks, so have at it?

  • Um, I don't I don't agree with Davos.

  • Statement.

  • Stephen and I feel about this very differently.

  • Paul, I don't understand why.

  • What was dubow talking about?

  • Even when he talks about, like, why would they want to cancel the game like the game generates revenue and they got blown out by inferior teams all year?

  • Who cares if you get blown out by the best team or one of the best teams like what's what's in it for F S, U to cancel?

  • Like what?

  • What's their incentive?

  • And meantime, F S u has certain standards, right?

  • They don't wanna expose their students to Davos.

  • Sweeney's team.

  • When Dabble traveled with a covert positive player, even if he hadn't tested positive yet, he was showing symptoms.

  • So I understand where that could happen.

  • Hey, we didn't know if he had it.

  • He was testing negative.

  • Then eventually he tested positive.

  • But dude, you were the head coach who opted Thio travel with the kid and now the opposing head coach who has nothing to lose by playing your team.

  • It says, like I don't wanna expose my kids to that.

  • And now Sweeney is going off Why is that going off on?

  • And Paul, What's the logic there?

  • Well, listen, in terms of the motivation, I would agree, uh, Clemson had more to gain from this game.

  • I I think Dubow went dubow and you guys know him fairly well.

  • He can he can, you know.

  • He wears his emotions on his sleeve, and I think he was representing his players, and I'm I'm not going to try toe, get into what would have happened had they played because we haven't seen any evidence so far this season that play on the field where we're transmission of the virus is going on on the field.

  • That's happening on planes that's happening in locker rooms and a lot of other places.

  • So there's there's no easy answer to that.

  • I mean, this is a controversy.

  • This is a big hullabaloo for one specific reason.

  • It's not really what Davos said.

  • It's not really what Mike Norville said.

  • It's the fact that nobody could make a decision.

  • So you had doctors from both schools trying Thio ameliorate the situation and it ended up badly for everyone when you needed some central authority there to to make a call Yeah, I get I get that point.

  • I just don't know why I dabble.

  • Remember Boston College School because you think he showed up against Boston College with Trevor Lawrence?

  • Trevor Lawrence had already tested positive.

  • They showed up in Pilate.

  • Yep.

  • Yeah, I know.

  • I'm just saying, like, no unified body.

  • Right?

  • Right.

  • I don't get the temper tantrum.

  • Frankly, and it was postponed, not canceled.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content subscribed to ESPN, plus.
