The Trae Young-ESPN hype train transcends Oklahoma games. It’s literally starting to pour into other Big 12 contests.
For example, college basketball viewers were not particularly pleased when ESPN2 plugged Young’s stats above the scoreboard graphic for the Iowa State-Kansas game on Tuesday.
HOW DO WE HAVE A TRAE YOUNG STAT LINE WHEN WE’RE NOT EVEN PLAYING OKLAHOMA pic.twitter.com/0b4kh51Ed8

Sure, ESPN was probably trying to plug its other game on television. That’s nothing new.
Fans are still over ESPN’s nonstop coverage of Young, even if he is the runaway favorite for the Wooden Award.
Here’s a few dissatisfied tweets over ESPN’s move:
ESPN’s Trae Young coverage has jumped the shark. https://t.co/xpYQoGe5NB

Everyone: we don’t want a Trae Young tracker when we play Oklahoma
ESPN: you….you want a Trae Young tracker even when you’re not playing Oklahoma?? https://t.co/LV3iWIlDe1

Okay @espn I’m going to lay this out here for you real simple like: If anyone cared about Trae Young’s stats they would either A) watch the game he’s in, or B) look up his stats online. Not try to find them by watching a completely different game than the one he’s in. Please stop https://t.co/03GIKmkIan

Please stop ESPN. Like we’re begging you. People can go to your app if they really care that much https://t.co/zEUdgZjmwe

@espn get the Trae Young stat line off of every ******* screen of other games people are trying to watch. He wasn’t even one of the top 2 players, let alone Fr, in the last game he played in. Enough already https://t.co/Khd4WPr2PC

How long until ESPN hosts a daylong celebration of Trae Young’s birthday? https://t.co/XZmJvBrkBG
