Many here are responding to the Chancellor's comments from a perspective of cash value. I think she really was talking about value systems, not the dollar figures themselves.
In other words, she does not like a value system that leads to (in this case) football coaches making many millions of dollars a year. Coaches get paid that kind of money because we as consumers really like the product, watch the show, buy the merchandise, etc., and the money flows to the coaches. And, as much as I love Michigan sports and the continuing connection it gives me since graduation, in reality, the games themselves have no actual meaning to my life other than a dviersionary enjoyment.
Now, given that our society does value such a system, I think the money Harbaugh and Meyer gets paid is just fine.

with your premise (that she's not fit for the "real world"). But, to be fair, in most disciplines, there is absolutely no value to getting a PhD unless the person intends to go into academia.

This is the first time in years that I have been excited enough about football to want to spend the whole day watching it. HARBAUGH!

Might also lead to some discrimination issues between men's and women's sports, too (example, men's basketball versus women's).

Love the bit about winning on a hail mary and conversion. Question, though: what does BYU call the hail mary? Seeing as how that's a quintessential catholic prayer, wonder if they have a different name.

I was also at that game. As I recall, the stands were surprisingly full.

ND 1999. First game as a freshman with no prior connection to the university. I had no trouble diving in, though.

I had that goal originally, too, but I don't have any desire to go to Rutgers or Maryland.

That sort of reminded me of Brian's proposal for an expanded B1G. Set schedule for part of the season, then winners playing winners, losers going into a "lower" division.
EDIT: my recollection was a bit off. Below in the comments are a better rehash.

I've been wrestling with your question - is it hypocritical for me to enjoy and watch football, but not let my son play - for some time. Personally, I would rather my son not play, but I'm not at the point where I would refuse to allow him to play.
With respect to fandom, it does seem hypocritical to watch a game that I would prohibit my son from playing due to the dangers. In a way, that encourages other kids to put their bodies on the line and get hurt. But, these kids play the game voluntarily, unlike the kids in your Hunger Game analogy. And, especially now, the information on the dangers is available to them, and they still choose to play. At least I hope so. Maybe that's me rationalizing continuing to watch football, but that's where I am right now.

It's about a girl's first game at the Big House. My son and I read it every night for about two months. Because it is fiction, Michigan defeats Ohio State (although they are not named in the book, it is obvious who the opponent is). Incorporates the Victors, the wave, the band, key play, touching the banner. After two months of reading it, though, it gets very old, but it's a fun way to subtly indoctrinate your kiddo.
As a kid, my favorite was Miss Nelson is Missing.

Is there a feaux Harbaugh twitter account? If not, you need to create one and this should be the first tweet.
