ESPN announcer rails againt ‘chaos’ of ‘broken’ college football business
ESPN announcer Joe Tessitore had a lot to say after Florida State’s humiliating 63-3 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday in the Orange Bowl at Miami Gardens, Fla.
The business of college football, the infrastructure of college football, is broken, Tessitore said during the fourth quarter.
The Seminoles were down more than twenty players due to injury, opt-outs and the transfer portal, which Tessitore says is the reason for Florida States loss.
The calendar, where you have the transfer portal, the early signing date, the coaches turmoil and silly season of hiring and firing, of players coming and going while youre trying to bowl prep that is pure chaos, Tessitore said.
Georgia lineman Warren Brinson saw the writing on the wall early on, and even went live on Instagram before the game was over.
The majority of Florida State starters, including major names such as wide receivers Keon Coleman and Johnny Wilson and defensive lineman Jared Verse, Fabien Lovett and Braden Fiske opted not to play Saturday.
