Well, this is a feud nobody saw coming at all.
Desmond Howard, who won the 1991 Heisman Trophy for the Wolverines, simply took to Twitter and asked his following their thoughts on this year’s four finalists. That’s when former Ohio State and NFL QB Cardale Jones jumped in and blasted him with something he needed to get off his chest.
“Just keep them slick a– comments to yourself up on stage and let these well-deserving young men enjoy one of the biggest, prestigious moments a collegiate athlete can have,” Jones wrote. “Congrats and good luck to all four finalists.”
Jones has been holding on to something Howard said since last year when Michigan finalist Aidan Hutchinson said his goal was to beat Ohio State and win the Big Ten title. Tim Tebow jumped in and said he’s glad Kenny Pickett was standing between Hutchinson and Buckeyes quarterback C.J. Stroud. That’s when Howard joked that Pickett will have to protect Stroud “better than his offensive linemen.”
Howard responded to the critical tweet by referencing Jones’ “We ain’t come to play school” tweet from 10 years ago.
“REALLY CARDALE!? It’s really one of [the] BIGGEST and most PRESTIGIOUS MOMENTS a collegiate athlete can have??? Tell me more! You should have played more school,” Howard said.
Cardale got his point across and left it at that.
USC’s Caleb Williams, TCU’s Max Duggan, and Georgia’s Stetson Bennett are also finalists for college football’s biggest prize. ESPN will air the Heisman ceremony this Saturday night.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
