The Twitterverse Is Not Happy About Colin Cowherd Appearing On ESPN's First CFB Broadcast Of The Year

The 2014 college football season started today. 

Currently, two FCS programs, Sam Houston State and Eastern Washington, are facing each other in Chaney, Wash. ESPN has the broadcast of the top-15 matchup. Mark Jones is calling the play-by-play, with Rod Gilmore serving as analyst and Jessica Mendoza providing sideline reports. 

ESPN radio personality Colin Cowherd, an Eastern Washington alumnus, is in attendance for the contest. ESPN brought Cowherd into the booth to talk about the game and other college football topics. The Twitterverse was not happy about that.
