Just because someone's on television doesn't mean he won't clap back on you.
Though it's generally a long shot for a highly-visible TV personality to even give the peanut gallery the time of the day, sometimes it happens.
And the twitter trolls often leave the altercation wondering why they even picked the fight in the first place.
The situation here between an unsuspecting fan and ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit appears to be just another example of why you don't pick fights with the big dogs-- they come with a nasty bite:
It wasn't much, but after that comment Herbstreit said all bets are off. He unleashed on Twitter user @RZRhog501.
Actually looks like youre an Arkansas fan. When are they playing? Or do you just claim UGA, Bama, and Auburn as your own when your team doesn’t go to a bowl game?? That must be nice to talk trash on behalf of those teams when you’ve moved onto Basketball season for the last month https://t.co/6I6QSogI39— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) December 31, 2017
Well, then! That's probably the last Herbstreit will hear of this. He has much more important matters to divert his attention to anyway.
The biggest bowl games are right around the corner, and the college football world is going to be in a frenzy.
We need your insight directed there, Kirk. Leave breaking down the Twitter trolls to the rest of us for now.
