Kirk Herbstreit Deletes His Twitter Account

ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit deleted his Twitter account on Thursday, thanks to the same Ohio State fans that forced him to move out of Columbus.

“The day I moved from Columbus I decided to pick up twitter and get involved,” Herbstreit said. “Then, when things broke down on Monday … I haven’t been on for two or three days … for me to have to sit and defend if I love Ohio State is the most asinine thing … I’m going to stop engaging with a lot of the fans for awhile.”

Man up, Kirk. That’s why Twitter offers a block option. Try using it.
