ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit is the latest College Football analyst to join the Leonard Fournette NFL debate.

On Wednesday, Herbstreit went on the Mike & Mike radio show to voice his concerns about how some people think Fournette should sit out his junior year to avoid risking an injury before the 2017 NFL Draft.

Herbstreit strongly disagreed with those who think that and says whole conversation is "just a bunch of crap." Per 247Sports:

"This idea that, ‘He shouldn’t have come back, look what happened to him,’ you can point to one or two guys in the history of the game that came back and got an injury," Herbstreit said on Mike and Mike. "These guys recover from ACLs in eight months now. They come back bigger, badder and faster. We plant these seeds of, ‘Why did he come back? The players always have the short end of the stick.’

"It’s just a bunch of crap." It’s not real-world stuff. It’s make-believe stuff and stuff that is bad for the game, to be honest.”

Classic examples of "rantards". Herbstreit is one of the best analysts in the business.

I never thought I would agree with Kirk on anything he says until tonight. Kirk is a TROLL and will advocate for the Big 10/Pac 12. He does not like the SEC...LET'S BE REAL! But I am glad to read and hear that he defended a rule that should not be amended, unlike Clay Travis, Fox Sports and others.

Kirk has never been a troll, and please no comparisons to he and Mark May.
