A couple of big-time college football programs, the University of Southern California and the University of South Carolina, are having their Pro Day workouts today. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier noticed something about the way those workouts are being covered.
Both ESPN and NFL Network are offering live coverage of Southern California’s Pro Day, while both gave only passing mention to South Carolina’s Pro Day. Spurrier, noting that his team was in the Top 10 last season while Southern Cal was unranked, wasn’t happy about that.
“I noticed both USCs had their pro timing day today. One of them finished No. 7 in the country, the other was not in the Top 25, yet ESPN decided to go out to the one in California which did not finish in the Top 25 and televise their day live,” Spurrier said, via Josh Kendall of The State.
Don’t worry, coach. Next year, when Jadeveon Clowney is in the draft, your Pro Day won’t be lacking for media coverage.
