I definitely agree with him here. If you are injured or have a real reason for not playing, you have a right to be on the sideline. If you are just protecting your assets by not playing in the game, you are no longer apart of the team and shouldn't be on the sideline.

On ESPN’s College GameDay, Herbstreit really questioned why Baker was still with the team, as the Georgia defensive back did make the trip with the team to New Orleans.
