ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit ruffled more than a few feathers on Tuesday when he suggested that the University of Michigan could use the COVID-19 pandemic as a means of avoiding a matchup with the powerful rival Ohio State Buckeyes.
He later issued an apology for his comments.
But now, a notable former Michigan alum is taking a page out of Herbstreit’s book.
Desmond Howard, a current ESPN college football analyst and former Michigan Wolverine, suggested that the Michigan State Spartans could refuse to play the Buckeyes for the same reason:

Do you believe that the former Michigan wide receiver is out of line to make this suggestion?
