ESPN host David Pollack has come under fire over sexist remarks he made on Saturday.

ESPN host David Pollack has come under fire over sexist remarks he made on Saturday.

Pollack, former American college and professional football player, sparked outrage when he said during ESPN’s “College GameDay” that women shouldn’t serve on the college football selection committee.

He made the controversial statement only a day after it was reported by the Associated Press that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was expected to be a part of the College Football Playoff selection committee next year.

Now I’m going to stick my foot in my mouth, probably. I want people on this committee, guys, that can watch tape ... Yes, that have played football, that are around football, that can tell you different teams, on tape, not on paper,” Pollack said to Chris Fowler, another ESPN football analyst.

When Fowler asked whether it was being implied that women didn’t belong on the committee, Pollack replied, “You said that... I'll say it, yeah. Yeah.”

Soon after the comment was aired, Pollack faced immense criticism. His colleague Samantha Ponder and prominent female college football reporters Bonnie Bernstein and Erin Andrews also posted their reactions.

Also, Andrews ended her show "FOX College Saturday,” saying:

"I'm a female, thanks for having me in college football."

Following the backlash, David Pollack posted a clarification on Saturday on Twitter saying he didn’t single out women in his comment.

People, however, didn’t seem to believe him:
