Give ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit credit– he is man enough to admit when he is wrong.
The popular ESPN College GameDay personality and college football commentator has consistently picked against Texas A&M in the early going of the 2016 football season. And Texas A&M fans have taken notice.
Following another Aggies victory on Saturday night, which pushed Texas A&M to 4-0 on the season, a group of vocal Aggies fans decided it was time to give Herbstreit a hard time for picking Arkansas to win the Week 4 SEC West showdown.
On Sunday morning, Herbstreit responded to that complaint with a humble and honest Tweet about the Aggies:
Yeah, have no problem admitting I was wrong about A&M. Just didn't see this coming. I WAS WRONG. Spread the word. Congrats on a great start! https://t.co/i0vXKghWh6

Internet trolls will always find something to complain about, but it’d be hard for any Aggies fan to be upset with that response. We can now count him among those giving credit where it is due for Kevin Sumlin’s squad.
