Kirk Herbstreit Says It's Getting "Hard To Watch" These Teams Play

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


ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit did not hold back when talking about a certain conference during his appearance on SportsCenter this morning.

Herbstreit, like many others in the college football world, took some shots at the Big 12 and its defense (or lack thereof, really).

The ESPN college football analyst said it's getting "hard to watch" teams in the Big 12 play.

Herbstreit said the Big 12 teams are basically playing "two-hand touch" with an insane amount of scoring and no defense to be found.

This comes after Oklahoma's 59-56 victory at West Virginia on Friday night.

Herbstreit certainly isn't alone with this thought process.

ESPN's Booger McFarland was extremely tough on the Big 12 during Friday night's game.

"This ain’t football," he tweeted.

ESPN's Greg McElroy tweeted something similar: "Ok, I’ve seen enough offense. Can we at least ATTEMPT to be fundamentally sound on the defensive side of the football? The Offenses are great, but these Defenses are PATHETIC," he tweeted.

We'll likely be getting some decent defensive play in today's big rivalry games.

Ohio State and Michigan are set to kick off at noon E.T. while Alabama and Auburn are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. on CBS.

ESPN's College GameDay is set to air from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. E.T.
