Kirk Herbstreit doesn't have a great poker face, but he does know how to keep his composure in the face of a natural disaster.a 5.6 magnitude earthquake.
Herbstreit's face is priceless, but he maintains his composure and tries to concentrate on Fowler, who ends up asking what seems to be the longest question in college football broadcasting history. When Herbstreit finally starts to answer, he loses his train of thought and tries to explain why.
"Chris, just to let you know, dead serious, as I've been talking to you, we just had, I think, an earthquake," Herbstreit told Fowler. "I literally thought the stadium here was rocking, people were stepping down off this platform that I'm on. But we had a little aftershock, so what was your particular question about Oklahoma or Oklahoma State's defense?"
If nothing else, at least Herbstreit's professionalism under earthquake made for a much better reaction that the one Baltimore Ravens receiver Torrey Smith had during an earthquake last summer.
