    It's probably a wash in the end, but theyll nip 1 or 2 teams that are ranked and lose to 1 or 2 unranked teams at home. Still don't think Pruitt is built to be a HC in the SEC.

    Former Michigan AD Dave Brandon was a guest on Jim Harbaugh’s podcast this week (Harbaugh has a podcast?!) and confirmed that he got ESPN to pay for installation of lights at the Big House in 2010 in exchange for broadcasting at least one Michigan night game per year. The installation was in the neighborhood of $1.8-2 million.

    I dunno how comfortable I am with ESPN directly contributing to school’s facilities funds like that. It’s one thing to sell merch or have Game Day on campus but this is a whole different level.

    How is that different from just paying directly for broadcasting rights though? As long as it's public I don't see a major issue
