Sometimes you just have to charge it to the game and say we screwed up. During tonight’s game between Michigan and Ohio State, ESPN featured a new baseline view of the game which didn’t go over well with fans.
Nice move, I think? pic.twitter.com/9f2krCvEm1

Apparently the camera is set up around the scorer’s table and maybe they ran the test run without players on the court.
Who the HELL thought broadcasting this Michigan-OSU game from the scorer's table was a good idea?

Moments like this really make my flatscreen HD TV worth it. https://t.co/345ip2TXTU

This is really bad and would have been almost impossible to watch without complaining. I’m sure this will be the last time ESPN will use this camera angle, it was a complete failure. The referee was in the way 90% of the time.
