Kirk Herbstreit is concerned about the state of college football.
It isn’t so much that Texas and Oklahoma have both been invited and accepted invitations to join the SEC, it has more to do with that that represents.
Tradition and rivalries are what sets the college game apart from all other sports, the ESPN “College GameDay” analyst said. That, however, doesn’t appear to be a priority.
“I guess it’s our new world, our new reality,” Herbstreit said on SportsCenter. “I don’t know how you feel. I’m a bit of a traditionalist. I think when we did this realignment a few years ago and you saw teams like Nebraska leave and go to the Big Ten and Colorado leave. It was at that time we were thinking that Texas might leave and join the Big Ten or the Pac-12, and the Big 12 would have this same situation.
