Can you really say it is a big deal.....

without a full understanding of the revenue streams for Michigan athletics and their cost structure? I don't think so. A debt number that large would certainly be a challenge for a lot of schools, however, given the size/attendance of Michign stadiums, the size of alumni donor base, the current conference TV contracts, etc. I doubt very much that they have a problem servicing that debt even if the TV revenue significantly declines. If you want to make a guess at who is most affected by potential cord cutting you can probably make a reasonable guess by comparing what % of total revenue for an athletic program comes from TV.
