ESPN’s Joe Tessitore Gets Blasted For His Comments About Matt Corral ‘Doing It The Right Way’ Following Injury

ESPN’s Joe Tessitore started trending on social media after he made some controversial on-air comments about Matt Corral during Saturday night’s Sugar Bowl.

Early in the first quarter, Corral, who many consider to be a first-round draft pick, had to be carted off the field with a lower leg injury.

An emotional Corral would return to the sidelines to be with his teammates, and that’s when Tessitore went on a rant on how the Ole Miss QB did things the “right way” by not opting out of the Sugar Bowl to protect his draft status.

“I know there’s been a lot of people railing on college football this year. The transfer portals, the NILs, the changing landscape, and are these postseason games really meaningful outside of the playoffs. Matt Corral is all you need to know. He’s doing it the right way, and he cares about it the right way.”

Tessitore was immediately criticized for his “doing it the right way” comments.
