The Curse of ESPN Thursday Night Football
#23 Maryland goes out to Blacksburg, VA to play Virginia Tech on Thursday. Take all the money you have and bet TECH!!!!
ESPN is perfect for perfect with ranked team upsets this year, going back at least a month. Observe:
Week 10: Cincinnati beats #23 South Florida
Week 9: West Virginia beats Auburn [no ranked teams]
Week 8: TCU beats #9 BYU
Week 7: #21 Wake Forest beats Clemson... Clemson sucks
Week 6: Pittsburgh beats #10 South Florida
Week 5: Oregon State beats #1 USC
Week 4: Colorado beats #21 West Virginia
Week 3: #19 South Florida beats #13 Kansas [both ranked teams]
Week 2: Vandy beats #24 South Carolina
Week 1: Was there a game on ESPN?
So 10 weeks of ESPN Thursday Night Football and in only ONE of them, a ranked team beats an unranked team. That is unbelievable!! How do you explain it?
