first_imgKirk Herbstreit speaks on ESPN about college football.ESPN’s College GameDay announced on Twitter this afternoon that it is heading to Orlando for Week 12. The show will be live in Florida in anticipation of Saturday night’s UCF-Cincinnati game.Kirk Herbstreit might not get the warmest of receptions from UCF fans on Saturday, though.The ESPN college football analyst has had a bit of a feud with UCF’s fan base throughout the season and on the show.“This argument needs to stop being just about UCF,” he said. “I’m a big believer that if you play people — like Boise State used to do — you should be rewarded for that. Why are we focusing on just UCF when it comes to the Power 5? Because I think there are other teams out there that are as deserving or more deserving.“You need to play somebody in order to be rewarded. UCF, you need to not just be worried about being undefeated and trying to get in the top four, you need to look behind you at teams like Utah State, Appalachian State, Fresno State. These teams, on paper — which is what you want to look at a lot of times — are better than UCF and more deserving than UCF.”Comments like this led to UCF’s AD, Danny White, clapping back.Good evening, @CollegeGameDay: pic.twitter.com/GmEi8dS4AL— Danny White (@UCFDannyWhite) October 22, 2018Herbstreit’s Twitter mentions are often still full of UCF fans, too. So, it could be a pretty interesting atmosphere at College GameDay next weekend. Hopefully, everyone can just enjoy the spectacle and have some fun.ESPN’s College GameDay airs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. E.T.last_img read more
