Kirk Herbstreit fires back at Ohio State fans

ESPN commentator Kirk Herbstreit called Clemson's hard-fought 29-23 Fiesta Bowl win on Saturday night.
After the contest, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day and many involved with their program were upset on a few questionable 50-50 calls. They thought a few calls hurt their chances for their first ever win over the Tigers (Spoiler: kicking FGs in the redzone was likely the main difference maker).
Herbstreit responded to several Ohio State fans that were calling him out, saying the calls were part of a larger conspiracy theory with the refs and ESPN wanting Clemson in the title game.

The ridiculous notion that ESPN is out to get the B1G or Ohio St is comical.
People cannot be this ignorant. #Sheep https://t.co/ZbTOjtuC4j
I said what I thought during the game. Looked like a catch and fumble to me. I don’t understand how it was overturned. But there were a lot of things that impacted the outcome of the game. But that was the one call that I didn’t agree with at all. https://t.co/OrRIZ3VSJu— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) December 30, 2019
AGAINNNNN Phan I said on air and I said it on here the missed the call. Was shocked they reversed the call. How else do you recommend I be more clear???— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) December 30, 2019
