DOTD: Saquon Barkley Gets A Shoutout On ESPN’s App

People, athletes in particular, know they’ve “made it” when they appear on ESPN, right? Well if that’s the case, Saquon Barkley just became president.

Barkley got a shoutout on ESPN’s app under its “What’s New?” tab, where the app’s update is described as “Optimized for iOS 11 and the new iPhone X to have us running as smoothly as Saquon Barkley through the hole.” That’s pretty high praise for Barkley, who’s the majority of voters’ favorite to win the Heisman trophy at the end of the season.

Not for nothing, but ESPN isn’t wrong; Barkley hits an open hole better than anyone in the country, but the “world leader in sports” better hope it’s correct in making that lofty comparison — things could get ugly if the app in fact runs like, say, a John Donovan-led offense.

But that’s what happens when you’re the best running back in the country.
