"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
One of the more nauseating photobombs (anything ohio that is). Looks like it's all in good fun. Kudos to Des for hanging around them...
Take 5 minutes and watch 3 great former players help raise money for future scholarships and the LSA Emergency Aid Fund. Also get a chance to hear all of them talk candidly about Michigan. Miss you already, 16.
Rothstein has a nice, interesting article about the recruitment of Desmond Howard 25 years ago. Includes quotes from his father, Coach Moeller, and Desmond himself, as well as a few other people.
semi-OT: Columbus sports radio makes offensive tweet about Desmond Howard, joins Luke Fickell's pizza boy in the penalty box
Never a dull moment in America's number one evolutionary anthopology lab. To recap (other information is on 11w and other sources if you're actually interested in following up on this kerfuffle):
Torg (of Columbus 97.1 FM sports radio fame 'Common Man and the Torg' tweets that he wishes Desmond Howard would get fired or die so he could watch GameDay again.
Herbstreit comes to Desmond Howard's defense on Columbus station 97.1 Monday with a long and indignant rant calling out the Torg without actually mentioning Torg by name.
Common Man mentions on Monday's show later that afternoon that co-host Torg is "resting" and will return later. He also has some choice words for Fake Buckeyes that did not explicitly mention any well-coiffed former OSU quarterbacks who happened to wear no. 4 and got knocked out in the 1991 Heisman game.
Pass the popcorn and/or Iacono's pizza.
A new Youtube video is a well-done 6-minute long video of the greatest moments in the history of sports.

- Desmond striking the pose
- Webber's timeout
- Sam McGuffie hurdling his HS opponent
- Brady during the Patriots' SB celebration
