Marshall Wants To Thunder Their Herd Into College Playoff So They Hired A PR Firm
When America gives you injustice, give them public relations.
There's no question: The College Football Playoff selection committee will snub the Marshall Thundering Herd. Conspiracy theorists can say all they want about the SEC and ESPN teaming up for more bids. Marshall can and probably will go undefeated, but they won't PR their way into the college Playoffs. So it's somewhat shocking that they actually hired a PR firm to help them get into the Playoffs.
By the end of this season, there will be a few one-loss SEC teams. And the Herd won't thunder past them in the rankings.
While they're at it, they should gratuitously spend their money on a PR firm to lobby Rakeem Cato for Heisman. Hell, they should just go burn their money in a field -- but do it in the name of Marshall football -- and it would have the same affect. It's just that my headline would read "Marshall Wants To Thunder Their Herd Into College Playoff By Burning Money." Different, but the same, because all they really want is attention.
So, the Herd will beat Rice, Western Kentucky, FIU, UAB, Florida Atlantic, Ohio, Miami of Ohio. In short, they'll beat no one. And no one will care. Not even if they hire a PR firm. Not even if they have had a movie made about their team. Not even if they actually deserve it.
But wouldn't it be awesome if this PR firm, which helps sell Speedos to Americans (a task of Don Draper proportions), somehow managed to lobby the Herd in for a bid? Yes, it would be awesome. The only thing separating them from that reality is the conspiracy theory about ESPN and the SEC being proved true -- somehow.
