Desmond Howard and C.J. Stroud’s feud continued in the eyes of many college football fans Saturday night.
After Howard’s roast in 2021, Stroud seemingly didn’t want anything to do with the former Michigan wide receiver and Heisman Trophy winner.
At the Heisman Trophy ceremony, as Stroud was introduced as the only returning finalist from the season before, he took the stage, shaking the hands of the first two former winners on stage before passing right by Howard.

In 2021, before Stroud finished fourth in the Heisman race behind Alabama QB Bryce Young, Michigan DE Aidan Hutchinson and Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett, Howard poked fun at the Ohio State quarterback.
After Hutchinson was asked that his goals his senior season was to beat Ohio State and win the Big Ten championship, former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow interjected with a joke.
‘Kenny, I’m glad you’re in between them,’ Tebow told finalist Kenny Pickett, who was standing between Hutchinson and Stroud. ‘Please stay there.’
‘Better than his offensive linemen,’ Howard jumped in and said.
Stroud’s apparent dismissal of Howard before finishing third for the 2022 Heisman Trophy got the attention of the college football world.
