Earlier today, The Wall Street Journal ran a story about a number of terrible songsincluded in a songbook circulated by members of Ohio State's marching band, including anti-semetic and homophobic lyrics. The story is awful, and as you would expect, fans of rival schools have taken shots at OSU, including Michigan football legend Desmond Howard:

Howard and Ohio State fans have a very contentious relationship. Howard has taken shots at Ohio State basketball star Aaron Craft, and ranked Michigan ahead of Ohio State in his 2014 preseason college football power ranking. Last fall, a Columbus store put up a very unflattering display of Howard promoting Pringles. We don't expect this tweet to help matters.
