There's nothing better than a social media battle between a celebrity and a fan. 

It seems as if a few Twitter users struck a nerve with ESPN's College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit. Herbstreit went blow-for-blow with the fans when they called him out for being biased against Ohio State. He eventually shut them down. 

The situation started when someone claimed that ​Herbstreit was prone to ranking Alabama ahead of Ohio State as the better team. The attacker claimed that Herbstreit was basing the ranking entirely off of the name and that Alabama hadn't proven nearly as much as the Buckeyes. 

Another college football fan jumped in to say that Herbstreit is reverse-biased against Ohio State, his alma mater. Yes, it's that confusing. 

The argument doesn't make much sense, really. Herbstreit ranked Ohio State's quarterback ​Dwayne Haskins as one of his top performers of Week 6. How is that going against his school? 

College football fans are crazy. They're willing to fight over anything, even being partial.
