ESPN is simply trolling FSU football now. The network announced the show would travel to Ireland to cover the 2024 matchup between FSU and Georgia Tech.
This announcement came less than a week after FSU got snubbed from the College Football Playoffs after talking heads from ESPN blatantly tried to discredit FSU’s resume for weeks leading up to the final selection Sunday, despite FSU having one of the best resumes among the teams remaining.
FSU football fans have not gone quietly in the night as some thought. The snub has galvanized the FSU fanbase as they have bombarded all of the talking heads that tried to discredit the Noles on social media.
They have also nearly doubled their membership in The Battle’s End Collective.
I know many FSU football fans planned to make the trip to Ireland when the game was announced earlier this year. I can only imagine that number will grow after the success of the 2023 season, plus this announcement of College Gameday.
This snub isn’t something that FSU fans will ever let go of, and they are one of the most passionate fanbases in college football. I expect the FSU contingent to be loud and heard on that set, and I’m curious how the talking heads from ESPN will respond. The FSU fans will not let up once the college football season ends.
They will continue to hammer all of these guys, and I don’t think that’s something they thought would happen. It’s amazing how so many people with credibility have been outspoken about what happened to FSU. NFL players, Hall of Fame coaches, and even coaches in the SEC have agreed that FSU got snubbed.
Unsurprisingly, I haven’t heard one ACC coach come out in support of the Noles, which tells you they are fine with staying in a second-tier conference. It’s another reason why FSU has been so vocal about leaving in the first place. I can’t wait until this game and the lead-up to it!
