No homerism here. Nuh uh. No sir, Desmond Howard is being 100% objective when he ranks Michigan No. 6 in his preseason power ranking.
No matter that he ranked Michigan State and Ohio State at Nos. 10 and 11. Or Wisconsin and Nebraska 21st and 24th. Or that Heather Dinich and Mark Schlabach are the only other ESPN pundits, out of 13, to rank Michigan in the Top-25 (both at No. 25).
Nope, this was not a homer pick. A homer pick would’ve listed the Wolverines at No. 1, and Desmond Howard is no homer.
