that is nice bonus change
I don't really know how to take this, because although he's a buckeye, I typically think Herbstreit's take is meh, fairly objective. But it seems like he's on the kool-aid for us pretty hard against ND, while Desmond's enthusiasm is quite tempered.
I'm definitely in the camp with Howard, I was just a little surprised to see Herbie so high on Michigan after 1 game. Setting up his rivals for a fall maybe?
Big ups to the guy in the Desmond Howard jersey in the front row! (Right next to Sad VT Man). Go Blue!
I might just be seeing things, but does anyone else think Denard looks like Desmond? When I saw this photo on ESPN, I really saw a similarity.
(Sorry, had trouble with the hyperlink)
The comparison is easier to see if you imagine, or remove, Denard's dreads from the picture.
My apologies if this was covered sometime in the past.
Edit: Of course, both men have award winning smiles to match.
The classic 1991 Michigan -Notre Dame game is available as a torrent on the Ten Yard Torrents site. If you are into that sort of thing.
Oh, and anyone who wants to help my ration at Mgovideo, you can help me share the 1997 Wisconsin game or the 1993(4) Hall of Fame Bowl.
Per the AP
The late Pat Tillman and Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard are among the 14 newly elected members of the College Football Hall of Fame.
The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame announced its latest class Thursday at a news conference at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange in Manhattan.
Tillman played linebacker for Arizona State from 1944-97 and gave up an NFL career to enlist in the Army in 2002. He killed while serving in Iraq in 2004. Howard was a wide receiver for Michigan and won the Heisman 1991.
The newly elected Hall of Fame coaches are Barry Alvarez and Gene Stallings.
The other players in the new Hall class include Dennis Byrd of North Carolina State; Ronnie Caveness of Arkansas; Ray Childress of Texas A&M; Randy Cross of UCLA; Sam Cunningham of USC; Mark Herrmann of Purdue; Clarkston Hines of Duke; Chet Moeller of Navy; Jerry Stovall of LSU; and Alfred Williams of Colorado.
Kind of a given that he would be inducted given the Heisman and all but... well... any extra reason to post this is great:
This is decently old news, but Adam Rittenberg just posted something about it today. The newest ballot for the College Fotball Hall of Fame has 19 Big Ten players on it. This includes three Michigan players: Jumbo Elliott, Robert Lytle, and Desmond Howard. Some other key inductees are Eddie George, Deion Sanders, and Tedy Bruschi. Looking at the list, it seems like Eddie George and Desmond have a good shot to make it this year. Not sure if this was posted before, but I couldn't find anything in the search. Thoughts on who makes it?
