Kirk Herbstreit has fired back at a fan who did not appreciate his opinion on Tuesday’s College Football Playoff rankings about what happens to Alabama if Georgia beats the Crimson Tide in Atlanta.

The debate, which included interjection from Tim Brando, focused on Alabama still getting in the Playoff even with a second loss coming in the SEC Championship Game and nudging out Cincinnati. This theory promotes the narrative from Brando and others that the system is corrupt, and Group of 5 programs simply don’t get a chance to compete at that level.

There should be plenty of discussion about this topic on Saturday morning as ESPN’s “College GameDay” will broadcast on site in Cincinnati ahead of the undefeated Bearcats’ game against 3-5 Tulsa.
