Last weekend, offensive lineman and five-star recruit Jackson Carman visited Ohio State. On Monday, he made the fairly benign comment that he would like to see Dwayne Haskins, Jr. get some playing time. On Tuesday, Kirk Herbstreit chided him for it and doubled down when someone suggested that football recruits should be able to voice football opinions. Carman responded by suggesting that maybe he didn’t want to play for Ohio State after all. And finally, today, Carman confirmed that he viewed Herbstreit as a sheep after someone asked him what he’d meant by retweeting “lions don’t worry about the opinion of sheep.” 

As is the natural progression of things.
