Danny Kanell Responds To Kirk Herbstreit

Herbstreit called out Kanell on Twitter earlier today.

Kirk Herbstreit called out Danny Kanell on Twitter earlier today.

Kanell, formerly of ESPN, was critical of the College Football Playoff, saying it was just made for TV ratings and not for the four most-deserving teams.

Herbstreit called him out for this line of thinking. "Dude...what has happened to you?" he asked.

Kanell has now responded and he's not backing down from his earlier claim.

He says calling it a "playoff" is disingenuous.

This year's "playoff" is set to begin on New Year's Day.
