Kirk Herbstreit Praised Kevin Sumlin On College GameDay

Kirk Herbstreit On College Football's Most "Intimidating" Stadium


The ESPN college football analyst says Sumlin deserves some praise.

Kirk Herbstreit spent part of this morning's College GameDay praising an SEC head coach.

The ESPN college football analyst said Kevin Sumlin and his Texas A&M staff deserve some attention for what they've done this year.

“I think Kevin Sumlin and his staff deserve a lot of credit,” Herbstreit said. “With where they were at the beginning of the season, with the board of regents sending out emails and the AD setting a mark he had to hit and opening up with one of the most embarrassing losses, they’ve righted the ship.”

Texas A&M is 5-2 and set to play Mississippi State today.

"If he wins this one vs. Mississippi State, they have a great opportunity to have a good season," Herbstreit said.

The Aggies and the Bulldogs are set to kick off at 7:15 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
