Why do you hate Heather Dinich?

Heather Dinich, ESPN's ACC football blogger, doesn't have a lot of fans among other ACC bloggers I know. This includes me.

However, why does Dinich bring out criticism from us bloggers in ACC country? Is it because we're jealous that she gets paid to blog about ACC football for the four-letter network? Or is it because she doesn't have any talent?

What do you say, ACC blog nation? Do we hate the player or the game? Fire away in the comments.

I think a lot of people don't like her because she's a girl. Yep, I said it. Plus she also is coming from the Big 10. WTF?

I'm leaning towards she doesn't know what she is talking about.

As a fan, if I want info on the Hokies, I have a whole website and at least two or three blogs I go to before Dinch. The other sites have the info sooner, and they are more likely to have it correct. I suspect that other ACC fans have a similar experience for their team.

I don't think the ESPN reliance on form blogs (Internal Affairs, Lunchtime Links) helps. It makes them all seem like mindless clones filling in mad-libs.

I think we all just want to read about two teams: our team and the one we're playing. I don't get much info from her blog that I don't already get reading from the VT pros.

Kyle Tucker would take her out for a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

Not a real big clue about the sport itself, but AT LEAST I haven't heard her say stupid things like Holly Rowe talking about the guy player hurting his tummy during the BC game Sat night. It was so ridiculous that even the game announcer repeated what she said. As if his saying it made it that more original or not-GAY sounding. How F'in GAY.

I don't hate her. I know a lot of UVA fans hated her right off because she didn't have too many good things to say about us before the season....and for four games, she was right.
