Desmond Howard is a former Heisman Trophy winner and studio analyst for ESPN's College Gameday, one of the most popular and successful pregame shows in all of sports.
Chadd Scott is a Jacksonville radio personality at 1010XL, blogger, and former producer for The Herd.
In spite of their varying levels of fame and notoriety, Twitter is the great equalizer. The two came to social media fisticuffs out of the blue this week. It all started over a light-hearted tweet Howard sent about Ole Miss and their insane Signing Day success.
Scott wasn't in a joking mood and took offense to Howard painting all of Southern football with an extra benefits brush. You know, because clearly Oxford, Mississippi is a prime destination for top high school football recruits all of a sudden. Scott wasn't just a fan of Howard's tweet, he took the opportunity to call him the most useless analyst in the sport. That apparently was not a joke.
At least he didn't wish firing or death upon him.
The exchange began pleasantly enough with Howard continuing to take the high road...
Until Scott dragged him in to a full fleged fracas...
From there the Scott and Howard took the gloves off for a good old-fashioned Twitter War with the pair exchanging insults, haymakers, and even a couple thumbs to the eye. Could the underdog Scott channel the spirit of Appalachain State and pull off the upset in The Big House? Or would the Michigan Heisman Trophy winner and ESPN heavyweight keep down the Cinderella hopeful? Get your popcorn ready, let's get it on!
