ESPN Has Its Man on the Search Committee

Word out of Ann Arbor is that ESPN's Desmond Howard has been named to Michigan's search committee to help find the successor to Lloyd Carr. This is a good thing for ESPN, which figures to be a lock to break this story now that it has access to the inner circle. Just imagine the embarrassment if the four-letter network were to get scooped!

The bad news for the Wolverines? It's that Howard is on the search committee. Desmond seems like a nice enough guy, but who can forget his expert analysis on last year's Holiday Bowl. Texas A&M was California's opponent, not Texas. At least the graphics department got it right.

Howard was later summoned to the Budweiser Hot Seat where he apologized.
