As experts predicted, ESPN will pay $80m/year for the Champions Bowl per SBD this morning. Same money as Rose Bowl.

From ESPN's Kristi Dosh It's odd to see ESPN's sports business reporter passing on a report on ESPN by the Sports Business Daily, but the big four-letter really does keeps its business and journalism sides separate. Anyway, this is a huge payday for just one bowl game. If the pot gets split up evenly all around, that's $40 million to each conference, $4 million to each Big 12 school, and $2.86 million to each SEC school. Incidentally, that kind of math is what argues against Big 12 expansion in the future.

This week's top-10 list topic: the best villains in college football... I'm listing the brash, stir-the-pot characters: 1. Alabama coach Nick Saban: ...In our recent ESPN The Magazine survey of college players, Saban was the runaway top answer to the question, "Who is the last coach you'd want to play for based on what you know?" In fact, Saban was named almost twice as often as any other coach. Apparently, word from some Tide players has circulated. "Guys never have anything good to say about him," one SEC player said. (emphasis mine)

Bruce Feldman's Villains of College Football ESPN's big thing right now is asking who the biggest villains in college football. Normally I just skip these sorts of exercises, but Feldman isn't a rabble rouser and I haven't heard anything like this before. What about y'all? Anyone else heard of any dissent within the Tide ranks? For what it's worth, he has Lane Kiffin at No. 2 and Bobby Petrino at No. 4 before the ESPN Insider cutoff hits.
