ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit has been all over Twitter this morning answering fan questions about the upcoming season. Like many others, Herbstreit is buying into the hype with Tennessee, and took the Vols to win the SEC East this season.

As you'd expect, that ruffled the feathers of some Florida fans, one of whom responded with a graphic of Herbstreit taking Kentucky to beat Florida during College GameDay last season, a game that wound up being a 14-9 UF win. Herbie didn't back down though, and took a pretty pointed swipe at UF fans' sense of entitlement, and last year's 41-7 bowl loss to Michigan.

Kirk should probably be the one tweeting the tea-drinking Kermit emojis after that response.
