ESPN announcer Anish Shroff isn't holding anything back following today's high school game between IMG Academy (Florida) and Bishop Sycamore (Ohio).

The Worldwide Leader in Sports was apparently duped by the Ohio high school program, which allegedly lied about its roster.

Bishop Sycamore was crushed by IMG Academy - one of the top high school teams in the country - 58-0 on Sunday.

Awful Announcing had more on what happened:

In many respects, this should not have been surprising from Bishop Sycamore. The first season MaxPreps has data from for them is 2020, and they went 0-6 that year, including a 56-6 season-ending away loss to IMG on October 16. They scored 42 points that year and allowed 227. So this clearly wasn’t a good team last year, and it shouldn’t have been expected to be a good team this year. Also, it looks like they played a game two days ago against Sto-Rox in Pennsylvania (a 19-7 loss). Presuming that’s the same Bishop Sycamore, there’s no way a high school team should be playing on that short of rest.

Shroff had a blunt message for the fans following today's game.

"Sorry. They had no business being in that game today. None. I feel bad for the kids. Player health and safety was at risk today. It was uncomfortable for anyone who watched," he tweeted.

We likely won't be seeing Bishop Sycamore on ESPN again anytime soon.
