Do you like college basketball? Do you like staring at butts? Well ESPN has a treat for you.

Isn't it great how you can't really see what's going on, but you can see the player's butts? Doesn't that seem super useful with regards to watching a high level college basketball game? Here, check out this killer angle:
So much action. pic.twitter.com/aiIfhdOt1k— Noah Neidlinger (@candor_for_sale) February 17, 2016
What's going on in the game, you might ask? No idea. Is there a butt in the frame? Yup!
OK, honestly this is utter garbage and people are really upset about it.
@JimMWeber the person that thought "floor seats" was a good idea should be put on probation immediately @espn #worstideaever— Jeremy Read (@jreadUM) February 17, 2016
These new camera angles...glad the ref could see that three @dandakich @JimMWeber pic.twitter.com/oCzwwecFab— Nathan (@coff_drop2012) February 17, 2016
@JimMWeber passing it off as a novelty. In truth, they couldn't afford the expense of cameras and cameramen.— Due (@JDue51) February 17, 2016
Times are tough, yo.
I already hate these sideline camera angles. They make the game harder to see. Boo on @espn— The Michigan Insider (@michiganinsider) February 17, 2016
Who the HELL thought broadcasting this Michigan-OSU game from the scorer's table was a good idea?— Jim Weber (@JimMWeber) February 17, 2016
Wonder what the entire city of Columbus has to say about this.
'garbage' is now trending in #Columbus https://t.co/EsqXXTwFIq— Trendsmap Columbus (@TrendsColumbus) February 17, 2016
Probably the best part is the ref frequently getting in the way. Makes the game fun because you have no idea what's going on, you just see the score changing. It's like playing Monopoly with your family when you're super drunk and trying to pretend you aren't.

At least they thought things through!
Believe it or not, I just ran into one of ESPN camerawomen in the bathroom. She said that she can't pan without hitting anyone...— Kelly Hall (@KellyHall20) February 17, 2016
