Herbie is feeling feisty this morning.
Earlier today, ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit released his new top 6, as he does each week.
Herbstreit did not put Alabama at No. 1, which is what most experts are doing after the Crimson Tide beat Mississippi State and Georgia lost to Auburn. Instead, he left them at No. 2 and vaulted Oklahoma into the top spot.
This drew the ire of ‘Bama fans, but Herbstreit is not backing down. Here was his message to the angry Tide supporters:
“Anti Bama”?!?!?? Furthest thing from the truth!! Called objectivity. Isn’t there a NASCAR race or wrastling match you should be watchin?? Leave CFB analysis to the big boys. #BeatIt

This isn’t going to soothe anyone’s feelings, but it is clear Herbstreit is willing to defend his decisions.
