Ohio State Michigan Game Sells Out

Sure the game is probably sold out, but I’m going to complain how the schools sold out by selling the naming rights to SBC. The yearly rivalry game will now be called the “SBC Michigan Ohio State Classic.” The schools will split a million bucks for the deal. I know ads are nearly everywhere now, but I think this is the start of a slippery slope where every regular season matchup will want a sponsor.

When OSU comes calling for a donation next year, maybe I’ll tell them that SBC already covered it.

Update 2004-10-28: Maybe they read my blog. :) The deal is off. Let’s keep it that way.
