Kirk Herbstreit is becoming a college football institution and now does NFL games.
But I have to say I find his performances on USC games wanting.
For one thing, he kept defending Clay Helton and said USC should retain him during a Notre Dame game a few years ago.
Last night, Herbstreit made a big deal about USC being physical at the line of scrimmage because it was against Stanford.
Does he think this is 2016?
Stanford has not beaten an FCS team since Oct. 2 of last year and lost 8 of it past 9 games. David Shaw is running a new offense because his power offense no longer works.
Kudos to USC for taking care of business in Palo Alto. But Herbstreit’s analysis is out of touch.
I wonder if it’s like this on all his games but not as noticeable if you’re not as familiar with those teams.
