Everyone declared Alabama the National Champion of College Football before the game was even played Monday night.
Someone forgot to tell Clemson. They kicked Alabama’s butt 35-31 and left all the football pundits looking like the political geniuses who had Hillary Clinton as president.
It’s always sweet when the nation knows what’s going to happen while the national media does nothing but scream the opposite.
All season long the pundits have piled on about Alabama being the best football team. Yet Americans who watch the game knew that was far from true.
The laughable ESPN has for weeks planted headline-worthy stories crowning Alabama as champions; How many Americans know ESPN runs the SEC Network that ‘Bama represents? It is in ESPN’s financial interest to push ‘Bama as national champion, and that was what they did with all their sloppy journalistic might.
The New York Times had innumerable articles fronting ‘Bama as the leading team of America.
Well, all that falls flat on all their faces.
We knew better.
Now we can rub it in for an entire year.
