Disappointed “College Football Fan”

Josh, I was a big fan and still check in form time to time however, I’m grossed out but the sec biased you’ll talk Tenn, Ark st, and other mediocre teams like they’re significant. But will rarely mention ACC top contenders. Just call it a sec and friends show. Only met ones Miami after Kirk H did and your take was so wrong. Pac 12 team unless it’s job openings or Oregon.
