Another example of adults ruining things for kids


Now, everybody’s listening to Ben Ferree. 

For nearly four years — from the time Christians of Faith Academy and its football team suddenly appeared in Columbus, through the time when COF folded and was reinvented as Bishop Sycamore, right on up to last Sunday, when Bishop Sycamore became a nationally televised spectacle — Ferree has been screaming, “It’s a scam.” 

Bishop Sycamore lost 58-0 to IMG Academy, one of the top-ranked teams in the nation, on ESPN. As the blowout expanded, ESPN’s announcers said they were misled by claims that Bishop Sycamore was stocked with Division I prospects, worried aloud about injuries which could result from the physical mismatch and apologized for viewers for airing a car wreck. 

From out of nowhere, a school no one had ever heard of had apparently duped The Worldwide Leader in Sports into believing it was a national powerhouse worthy of viewing on the big network. Who or what was/is Bishop Sycamore
