If the best that ESPN can do is have an overworked 22-year-old cranking out hype, then shame on ESPN, the supposed worldwide leader in sports coverage.
Here's a more accurate assessment, from CBS: "No. 1 Alabama survives Tua injury, beats Tennessee 35-13."  That is right on the money.
It's not rocket science.  If CBS' overworked 22-year-old can do it, then ESPN's should be able to as well, I think.

Heck!  Maybe the ESPN caption-writer meant to say "dominating defense."  That would make more sense.
The audience doesn't demand better.

In this case, who is the audience for video captions?

You think so? He still only completed 58% of his passes and threw 0 touchdowns. His INT in the 1st half was horrible. he definitely played better in the 2nd half but he was not good in the 1st.

michigan had some poor offensive play calling, were very undisciplined and also got the short end of two poorly missed calls on PSU’s 1st td that was offensive pass interference and the 3rd down where  Michigan should have been award a 1st down from PI and PSU gets the ball back and the 1st play they run for 50 yards. They were already playing poorly and two poor calls were the nail they didn’t need because there were plenty of self inflicted issues as well.
Agree with this 100%.

Patterson played better in the 2nd half, but that doesn't make up for his awful 1st half. He basically gifted Penn State a TD with that terrible INT on a screen...like how the f you throw an INT on a screen pass bro!?!? Ugh. 7 points right there. That was the difference in the game. 

Michigan's offensive coaching is downright awful. There is some legitimate offensive talent on this team and it's not being put in position to succeed.

I find in general that headlines today fairly often misrepresent the contents of the article.
Even in the old days, reporters wrote articles, editors wrote headlines.  This is not as new as it seems.

Anyway, y'all missed the most important part of Saturday's stream of consciousness, which is that in typical Buckeye fashion, Joe Burrow showed his butt.

I once saw a headline in the Cincy paper about tornadoes in GA so I clicked on it, having relatives down here, and the article never mentioned GA at all.

That's when I realized some editor wrote the headline having not read the article, or perhaps a para with GA mentioned was edited out.

They usually get the stats right, I think.  I don't generally bother reading their "analysis" anyway.

There will never be legislation to help with the absurdities of online "articles" as long as there are no term limits.  I'll never forget Zuckerberg basically explaining to a congressman how email works....
