Jake Owen calls out Kingsbury on ESPN

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Country singer Jake Owen is drawing a lot of negative attention to himself after a comment he made about Kliff Kingsbury on ESPN's College Gameday Live on Saturday.

"I have to take Oklahoma State on this one," Owen said, "because I have a hard time pulling for a team where I feel like the coach spends more time looking in the mirror than pulling for his guys."

That statement sparked a wildfire of angry tweets like this one by Tech's safetie's coach Trey Haverty:

"Jake Owen just said something about the hardest worker I know...no more sales in Lubbock! #NiceHairInYourEyes"

That was retweeted by quarterback Davis Webb.

Tech alumnus Josh Abbott also voiced his thoughts about the comment on Twitter.

He tweeted: "Going out on a limb here but I don't think @jakeowen knows very much about football. Time for a haircut bro. @TTUKingsbury all day."
