Bruce Barnum responds to Kirk Herbstreit: We’ll play Oregon for $1.8 Million
Portland State head football coach Bruce Barnum joined John Canzano’s Bald Faced Truth on Tuesday for his weekly appearance.
Just moments earlier, Kirk Herbstreit side-swiped Barny’s Mighty Viks when commenting on Oregon’s season-opening loss to Georgia.
“The message to Rob Mullens is: Schedule Portland State. If you schedule Portland State, they’re undefeated and everyone is talking about how great Oregon is,” Herbstreit said on ESPN’s College Football Playoff Rankings reveal, which had the Ducks at No. 6.
“One point eight.” Barnum said on the BFT. “Any press is good press, right. Even when it’s coming from Kirk.”
Portland State coach Bruce Barnum heard @KirkHerbstreit suggest Oregon should have played the Vikings (instead of Georgia)… @CoachBarnum69 said he’ll gladly do it for $1.8 million.
“That will clean some things up here,” Barnum said.
