Howard slips up on College GameDay

During the show, Desmond Howard made a huge error in judgement. He asked host Rece Davis, “Is Desmond Howard gonna have to choke a (expletive)?”
The Buckeyes have defeated the Wolverines in every year under Jim Harbaugh.
In addition, no Michigan team has defeated Ohio State since 2011 when they won 40-34. Despite all the losing, the Wolverines have a 58-50-6 all-time record against their rivals.
Howard apologized for the comment later.
“Earlier today in the show, I’m a big Wayne Brady fan and I made a comment that was supposed to be taken as a joke,” Howard said. “If I offended anybody, I apologize. We can move on with the show.”
While Howard apologized, he may still face ramifications from his employer. ESPN has suspended talent before for comments on social media so it’s definitely possible he misses the Texas show next weekend.
