Has a college player been subject to more criticism and pure hatred in the last few years than Eric Devendorf?
The perfect storm of villainous characteristics have culminated to paint a putrid picture of displeasure and disapproval. Devendorf’s status as “America’s Top Villain” has drawn every media outlet’s attention. Yahoo! Sports, ESPN, Fox Sports, Sports Illustrated, and CBS each sent someone to cover the Miami regional and the vilification of Eric Devendorf.
In their defense, they all essentially put a positive spin on the article, and none went the length of really criticizing Devendorf. But all their story lines did revolve around Devendorf being the player everyone loves to hate.
