Skip Bayless writing lead columns for ESPN.com, sadly, is becoming a trend that looks like it's here to stay.
For reasons unbeknownst to anyone outside the Bristol bubble, ESPN has once again chosen Skip Bayless to talk about an important sports topic outside of Tim Tebow and LeBron James. This time, it's a column on this year's Heisman race arguing for Manti Te'o over Johnny Manziel. Because Bayless and First Take has followed college football so closely all season long apparently. Even though Pat Forde and Bruce Feldman moved on, there's still a number of talented college football writers at ESPN.com that should get this kind of prime column real estate, but ESPN seems to be giving more opportunities to their debaters instead of the real experts these days.
I'll spare us all from a full-scale takedown because there's only so much Skip Bayless AA can take on before I begin to question my purpose in life. But it was these two paragraphs from Bayless that led me to stare blankly at my laptop screen for several hours trying to comprehend the logic of what I had just read (bolded emphasis added)...no comments
