I havent seen a Vegas line yet for UM/FSU.  Let me take a stab at it...guessing UM by 7?  UM by 6?  Certainly no more than 8 and no less than 4.

Do any other conspiracy theorists think the ruling class elite are trying to get back at us cable cutting Michigan fans this tournament? Not one Michigan game has been on CBS.

It is quite intentional.  They are putting the games with the biggest fanbase on cable SPECIFICALLY to counteract cable-cutters.   That's why you've seen more and more big sporting events moving to cable despite significantly lower ratings in the last few years. 

They are hoping that if people are scared about missing the "big" event they really need to watch, they will stick with their cable/satellite subscription.   Given how much I've paid to get those custom college football/basketball packages in the past, it isn't the craziest plan, honestly.

I don't think so. Yesterday, Kentucky was on CBS. Tonight, Kansas, Clemson, Duke, and Syracuse are playing on CBS. They're putting all the traditional basketball powerhouses on CBS. So I think the only reason we didn't play on CBS yesterday was Kentucky (if Buffalo or Arizona was in that game instead, we would have been on CBS).

I am pretty sure my wife cringes inside with each victory, especially for weekend afternoon and evening games since I consider that time to be "automatically blocked out". However, she's still supportive of all this.
