Default ESPN's Jason Fitz calls out Clemson fans - Calls them jerks

From Monday's College Football Daily show

"When we came into this show to start the year I didn't have a favorite team. I don't have any team I root for or any team I root against. I just love college football as a whole. I have gone through this season trying to be as unbiased and impartial as humanly possible. If there is any one thing that has come from my first season hosting a college football television show it is you have given me a reason to have a rooting interest. But it's not a rooting interest for it's a rooting interest against. I am here to tell you all that I now actively root against Clemson. Not just now and not just until the end of the year but until you guys turn it around. When I say you guys I don't mean anything on the field. I mean all of you jerks on social media. You sit there and you watch TV and you say that you want players to act like they represent the school. You say you want your coaches to act like they represent the school. And then you represent the school like jerks on social media. I'm tired of it. You guys are now the reason I am anti Clemson."

Cry me a river. That's the nature of the beast these days. Clemson fans are no more jerks than any other fan base when it comes to the internet. What a baby.

Who is that guy anyway?

Who is he? Is he straight out of school working for ESPN or has he been working? But his social media thin skin is humorous.

He's a musician who has played with "The Band Perry". As far as a degree in journalism I'm guessing he has none. I think he may have previously hosted a sports radio show, but I'm not 100%. Maybe it's just me, but too me he comes across as a douche on TV.

So ESPN now hires musicians to offer sports analysis? Or is he just an "entertainer" who just gives his fanboy opinions? I really don't take in anything from ESPN but games. For all I know he's just a radio shock jock for them.

Says the "little (very little) twerp that has to show his ink to make himself feel better about trying to do a job that he is totally unqualified for and a total failure at. Call us when your other testacle drops, so that you don't sound so much like a little girl!!! Couldn't stand him from day one. Bite me band boy!

Clemson cares very little about how you "feel" about Clemson. Clemson and their fans attack the BS media boys that "PRESUME" their opinion will be accepted. If you want to not be attacked on social media, either stay off of it, or GET YOUR SHITE TOGETHER! We can accept the truths/facts, but when some self proclaimed, boy-band, football analyst pontificates about a program that has a passionate, well educated (football wise) fan base, such as Clemson, you can believe we are going to eviscerate you to show your lack of knowledge.

Grow up you sissified little boy! Or you could always cope by going to get more "ink" to feed your low self-esteem!

Aside: It's times like this that I wish I had a Tweeter! (sic)

Oh mommy, those Clemson fans are soooo mean to me!!! What a Wuss!

He comes across as a douche on the internet, too. I've never heard of him until now, and don't really care what he thinks.

This guy is a complete crybaby and total tool. However he brings up a good point, when our fans tweet out trash, it makes our entire fan base look ignorant.

If he's ignorant enough to take a few da's as representing the whole fan base that speaks volumes to his credibility and intelligence.

It sounds like he made his comments based on 1 terrible tweet that he got. I wish he didn't saying anything because it's obviously going to bring a lot more negative comments his way.

Anyways, how does someone on ESPN make the comment that they are pulling against a university? Seems like if Herbstreet or one of the big names said that, they would get fired or at least have to make an appology

Waiting for a conference call so I decided to check this previous nobody out. He is now pretty popular with Tiger haters (a number of SCar folks looks like) and even more popular with Tiger fans or followers including a few media types who are calling him out for being unprofessional.

But that was probably his goal and he succeeded. He's now "popular" in the social media sense. For a lot of people, especially "entertainers" that is a goal. And outrage on social media gets you all the attention you want. Fast.

Still don't know what this guy's "job" is though for ESPN. Just to be a cool guy I guess.....

What a dumb a$$, so because a few fans from a team where mean to him now the entire fan base is responsible. ESPN should fire him for his comments ASAP.
