ESPN gets dumped on for a lot of stuff. Some of the criticisms leveled against them aren't fair, while others definitely are. Tonight, for the Michigan-Ohio State matchup, they decided to broadcast from a floor seat camera angle because the midlevel shot used for basketball for the past several decades just wasn't cutting it anymore. Lest you think that it's because the main camera was experiencing technical difficulties, know that the announcer's pitched it at the start of the game as a "courtside seat," and there was some nonsense about experiencing the "speed of the game."
