Kirk Herbstreit isn’t in the mood to reflect on a loss to Georgia from his Ohio State playing days.

On Tuesday, Georgia assistant Will Muschamp, a former UGA defensive back, got some laughs when he joked about playing against Herbstreit’s Buckeyes:

“We had a luncheon. Herbstreit got up and threw a pass across the room and I knew we had a shot to win. Make sure he knows I said that,” Muschamp told reporters.

Herbstreit has learned of Muschamp’s comments. The ESPN analyst, a former Buckeye quarterback, was asked about Muschamp during a Tuesday teleconference. Herbstreit explained the “throw” was an autographed football.

Will Muschamp today, I’m sure you saw, he talked about a throw that you made in a luncheon leading up to the game, and he said from when you got up and threw a pass across the room, “I knew we had a shot to win.” Do you remember what he’s talking about? Do you have a response to what Will was talking about there?

Herbstreit: I do remember it was one of those autographed balls, those white panel balls, and I remember throwing it and not being real happy with how far I had to throw it because I couldn’t grip the ball. So, I shot putted the ball. That’s about all I remember. But no, I don’t really have any comments or any reaction at all to what Will said.

Muschamp’s comments came up again later in the conference call. Herbstreit declined to return a jab at Muschamp. When asked if he remembered the 1993 Citrus Bowl game, Herbstreit said didn’t have clear memories of a game from decades ago:

Are you sure you don’t have a little comebacker against Muschamp?
KH: No.

Did he make any plays that day?
KH: I don’t even remember, man. Was that 100 years ago? I remember when I played in the early ’90s, and I would think back to my dad played, he was a captain in 1960, when I was that age, my dad would talk about playing. I felt like he was talking about 1860, and now I’m that guy. I’m that guy. So, I just remember Georgia being really good and very athletic, and I don’t remember much about Will at all.

Herbstreit’s Buckeyes fell to Muschamp’s Bulldogs in that game. OSU will look to even the series with a win in the Peach Bowl.
