I was perusing ESPN's main page and came across this overly confusing ad for their tv broadcast tonight. Illinois vs. #5 Michigan? As a Michigan fan I sure as hell know that the Wolverines are not ranked 5th in the Nation in basketball nor in hockey. So what could this ad be for? Are the Wolverines ranked 5th in Womens hoops? Nah, and that wouldn't be played on ESPN. Is Illinois actually playing Purdue and they just botched it? Nope. Apparently they just gave Michigan the #5 rank despite their .500 record. Not really sure how they made that slip up, but if you tune into ESPN tonight and are looking for the 5th best team in the country well I can guarantee you that you will be heavily disappointed.
