Desmond will become a permanent fixture on College Gameday this year as sort of a fourth-wheel analyst guy. I don't understand why ESPN thinks this is a good idea since his previous appearances on Gameday with Rocket "Raghib" Ismail have given me night terrors, but whatever.

Michigan gave him that shot. But after spring practice following his freshman year in 2001, Massaquoi, who chose U-M because of the success enjoyed by receivers such as Anthony Carter, Desmond Howard and Derrick Alexander, decided that the talent level at receiver was too great. He dropped by coach Lloyd Carr's office and proposed the move to tight end.
More on Massaquoi in today's News.
