Fox Sports’ Joel Klatt has found himself under fire over some comments during the Nebraska-Colorado game.
Travis Hunter, who plays offense and defense, was seen getting roughed up while trying to guard a tight end.
Klatt applauded Nebraska’s tactic because it would put Hunter in “harm’s way.”
“If I’m Nebraska this is exactly what I do, anytime Hunter is involved on defense with a wide receiver, hit him, block him, put him in harm’s way”

Fans thought it was weird for Klatt to advocate that Nebraska put Hunter in “harm’s way.”
@joelklatt can’t believe you just said put a player in harm’s way
