ESPN College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit upset a particular SEC fan base during this morning's show.

Herbstreit was the lone member of the ESPN College GameDay panel to pick North Carolina to upset South Carolina.

South Carolina fans aren't too happy with the GameDay guru.

Herbstreit's sons now play at Clemson, too, making him more of a nemesis.

Herbstreit maintains his objectiveness, of course, though South Carolina fans are already pointing at this as reason to dislike the analyst. "He either is brilliant or his sons playing for Clemson starting to affect his judgment," one fan tweeted. "We have just been informed that Herbstreit’s kids go to Clemson. This goes a lot deeper than we thought," another South Carolina account added.

The Clemson-South Carolina game should be fun this year. The two rivals are set to play on Saturday, Nov. 30.
