HS Insider Podcast: Fairfield AD Mark Harden refutes Kirk Herbstreit's comments

Longtime Fairfield High School Athletic Director Mark Harden joins the WCPO High School Insider Podcast to discuss the Twitter situation between Fairfield standout offensive tackle Jack Carman and ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit.

Carman - rated the nation's No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2018 class - was in the national spotlight last week after Herbstreit criticized him for a tweet about the Ohio State quarterback situation. I

It created a back-and-forth situation on Twitter with followers of Carman, a five-star recruit, and Herbstreit, a former Ohio State quarterback and Centerville High School product.

Herbstreit defended his criticism of Carman on ESPN Radio Thursday afternoon and elaborated on the situation.

Carman told Spectrum Sports the original intent of his tweet was simply he wanted redshirt freshman quarterback Dwayne Haskins to get time in a game; Carman said it was nothing against senior J.T. Barrett.

Harden, an Ohio State fan, took umbrage in Herbstreit’s comments about Carman and joined the WCPO High School Insider Podcast this week to explain his perspective on the situation.

Harden also discusses how his department advises coaches and student-athletes about social media to every Fairfield High School team each season.
