Kirk Herbstreit Has A Blunt Message For 3 Major Fan Bases

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


ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit senses one main similarity between three major college football fan bases.

Three major programs - Texas, Michigan and USC - haven't been happy with their head coaches. Tom Herman, Jim Harbaugh and Clay Helton are all believed to be on the hot seat.

While Herbstreit doesn't necessarily disagree with the hot seat speculation, he believes all three fan bases have a similar problem. Herbstreit said on College GameDay on Saturday morning that whenever anything goes poorly at Texas, Michigan or USC, the fan base immediately wants a coaching change.

Herbstreit said this morning that Texas, for example, has had problems "for a while." However, the Longhorns' fan base has long been ready to get rid of Herman.

While Texas, Michigan and USC might not be as patient as they need to be, it's not ridiculous for those fan bases to want changes.

Herman and Harbaugh have both had their respective jobs for a pretty long time. That isn't the case with Helton, but his hiring was questionable in the first place.

Is Herbstreit right, though? Do Texas, Michigan and USC fans need to be more patient - and more realistic - with their coaching wishes?
