Desmond Howard just predicted Kansas would “go bowling this season.” He did not specify if it was going to be at Royal Crest Lanes or Crown Lanes Bowling Alley in Lawrence— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) August 24, 2019
Desmond Howard picks Wisconsin to win Big Ten, so he’s officially off the Harbaugh bandwagon. Especially after also picking Les Miles to make a bowl at Kansas this season.— MichiganPodcast (@MichiganPodcast) August 24, 2019

Desmond Howard’s day so far: Thinks either Alabama or Clemson will not make the playoffs, believes Kansas is going to a Bowl Game, and finally asks Rece Davis on National TV in Disney World if he’s gonna have to choke a Bitch because Michigan can’t beat Ohio State.
