Ezekiel Elliott Upset With Kirk Herbstreit For O-Line Criticism

ESPN College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit has a few fan bases upset with him at the moment. Baylor supporters are annoyed that he insinuated that safety Terrell Burt faked an injury against Oklahoma. Ohio State fans are upset with a comment he made regarding the Buckeyes' offensive line.

Saturday, Herbstreit, clearly watching Ohio State vs. Illinois, expressed his dissatisfaction with the Buckeyes' play up front.

After the contest, offensive lineman Taylor Decker responded on Twitter. So did running back Ezekiel Elliott. Check it out:

Herbstreit did play for Ohio State, but he has no problem being critical of the Buckeyes from time to time. It's his job to be objective, after all.

Ohio State did put up 283 yards on the ground, so it's not like the sky is falling in Columbus. Ohio State gets Michigan State next week.
