Kirk Herbstreit addresses disappointing scene following Marshall-App State game
Some members of the Appalachian State fan base made quite the ugly scene following a victory vs. Marshall on Thursday night.
After App State edged Marshall 31-30, some fans directed multiple expletives and middle fingers towards the Marshall players, plus other inappropriate behavior.
ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit weighed in on the situation and lamented how the inappropriate minority of fans should face repercussions.
Hate seeing this. Unfortunately happens in many stadiums. In this era it’s paramount that AD’s and their stadium staff and security make people like this pay for their actions. 95% of fans are INCREDIBLE and 5% of every fan base can ruin an experience. Hold them accountable! https://t.co/2WX3QzDc5p
