Bishop Sycamore has had social media going wild over the past week due to them not actually being a high school football team and being able to finesse ESPN into airing one of their games on national TV. This is a squad full of older men and a head coach in Ron Johnson, who put out a hit on a homeless man. He even had Sycamore playing two games in three days, one of which they lost to IMG Academy, 58-0.
Former ESPN President John Skipper is finally speaking out on how embarrassing this situation was. This was in a Wednesday interview on the “Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz.” Skipper compared this to a dog taking a poop in a store aisle in a Walmart.
“Actually, I think this happens just because of the volume of games they put on at ESPN. There’s a hierarchy of what people pay attention to. This game falls pretty far down in the hierarchy, falls far enough down that they let someone else do the game and produce the game for them, and somebody didn’t pay attention.”
“This is like expecting the Walmart CEO to know that some dog has shit in aisle 13 of the Fayetteville, Arkansas store,” Skipper added. “You can’t know everything.”
This is definitely one of the most insane stories in sports since the start of this decade. It will definitely be interesting to see if any legal action is taken against Bishop Sycamore.
