Kirk Herbstreit fires back at Ole Miss fans on Twitter

Though the Ole Miss Rebels beat the Alabama Crimson Tide for the second year in a row last night, and in Tuscaloosa to boot, fans seemed more concerned about what ESPN commentator Kirk Herbstreit was saying during the game.

Apparently, fans took exception to Herbstreit saying how Alabama kept making mistakes instead of waxing poetic about their beloved Rebels, and Herbstreit took to Twitter to express his feelings.

That last tweet, of course, was in response to Leigh Anne Tuohy, who said the following beforehand.

Fortunately, Herbstreit knew that he crossed the line and then apologized this afternoon.

Regardless of what happened, both parties are guilty here. Ole Miss fans should have just enjoyed the game and not blown up Herbstreit’s Twitter about how he and Chris Fowler were calling the game, and Herbstreit should not have fed the trolls.

At least now he knows for next time.
