The internet nearly imploded after Desmond Howard’s horrible College Football Playoff picks

I honestly don’t know if former Michigan football player and current ESPN analyst Desmond Howard is now just trying to get attention and playing a part, or if he really means some of the horrible things he has.

Last week, Howard couldn’t believe CJ Stroud was a Heisman frontrunner despite Stroud being in New York last year, and now this ridiculous take.

When asked on a segment to provide his College Football Playoff picks, Howard went way off the radar with picks not even a coin-flip would likely produce.

When asked to give his picks for teams that’ll make the CFP, Howard (with a straight face mind you) went with the fantastic and undeniable four teams of Texas A&M, Pittsburgh, Michigan, and Baylor.

Uh, say what?

Ok, the Michigan pick was predictable. That’s because there’s no more of a homer in college football than Howard when it comes to picking the Wolverines. He’d probably take the corn and blue over the LA Rams in an exhibition game. Scratch that, I know he would.

But picking Pittsburgh, Baylor, and Texas A&M is something else. I mean, yeah, maybe one of those teams has a special season where all the stars align and find a way to elbow their way in. But three of those teams having that kind of year simply isn’t happening.

Keep in mind, it’s really not that hard to at least get a couple of these teams right since there seems to be a rotating door with Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame, but whatever. At least he picked the most reasonable of the most unreasonable foursome by picking the Aggies to beat the Wolverines for the national championship, so there’s at least that.

Maybe we’re all a part of the punchline here and Howard jumped in a time machine after going 88 miles per hour in a DeLorean with Marty McFly and has information from the future we don’t have. Not likely, but that’s more possible than the four teams he picked actually getting into all the fun.

The internet and social media were ablaze with criticism after Howard embarrassed himself and we have some of the best reactions here for your amusement and humor.
