Kirk Herbstreit: Washington should be thanking ESPN for airing their games at all

According to ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit, the Washington Huskies, and all Pac-12 teams, for that matter, should be licking ESPN’s boots.

Washington head football coach Chris Petersen is not happy about the fact his highly-ranked Huskies are playing so late every week. He made that point perfectly clear this week leading up to his team’s Week 6 game against Cal, which doesn’t even start until 10:45 p.m. ET.

Then on Saturday during ESPN College GameDay¬†in Fort Worth, Herbstreit had this to say about Petersen’s complaint.

We’re guessing Washington, its players, coaches and fans, won’t be thrilled about this. We’re also betting the Pac-12 itself won’t be happy to hear it should just be happy to have a seat at the table at all.
