Joey Galloway Mocked Female Drivers While Debating Leonard Fournette's Playing Future

LSU running back Leonard Fournette has become the subject of hot debate recently, regarding whether he should play for the Tigers in 2016 or sit out and preserve his health for the 2017 NFL Draft. 

On ESPN's College Football Live this afternoon, co-panelists Trevor Matich and Joey Galloway discussed the Fournette issue. Matich said Fournette should consider taking it easy, while Galloway took the opposite viewpoint, comparing Matich's suggestion to telling someone not driving a car because there are other people on the road. 

“When you drive a car, you don’t have SEC defenders diving into your legs 25 times a game,” Matich said.

“No, you’ve got women driving,” Galloway responded.

Okay now. Galloway's remark was met with awkward pauses and host Chris Cotter scrambling to move forward. Galloway quickly apologized.

Here's the video of the exchange.
