Herbstreit blasts radio host who said he was 'out of touch'
Kirk Herbstreit isn’t afraid to speak his mind, whether it’s in front of an ESPN camera, on a radio segment or in the Twittersphere. Saturday morning, the college football analyst had a few words for a Nashville radio host.
Recently, Herbstreit has made appearances on television to discuss the situation involving Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer. While Herbstreit acknowledges that the accusations against Meyer were damning, he stated that he wanted to hear both sides of the story before casting judgement.
“Slow down, let all the information come in,” Herbstreit said on SportsCenter earlier this week. “I want more information to come in. I want to see how Urban responds.”
That moment was criticized by Braden Gall, a radio host out of Nashville Tennessee. Gall said Herbstreit “looked a bit out of touch,” with his comments.
Herbstreit didn’t find that too flattering. So the analyst took to Twitter to roast the radio host.
“A bit out of touch” Really Braden?!?! Because I choose to hear more about the story before casting judgement. The last thing I am is “out of touch”. https://t.co/pKbFWfpjgK

“‘A bit out of touch.’ Really Braden?!?! Because I choose to hear more about the story before casting judgement. The last thing I am is ‘out of touch’.”
Herbstreit definitely didn’t take too kindly to that comment from Gall. But what Herbstreit was asking for wasn’t such a drastic measure, either. Gathering all the information, especially under these circumstances.
